More Downs Than Ups
Saturday night I went to see a new play by Michael Leoni called, "Elevator" at the Macha Theater in West Hollywood.
It's a predictable little play about seven strangers stuck in an elevator for hours. The characters are forced to reveal their "true" selves over the course of the ordeal.
This is one of those shows where the sum is less than the parts. The cast is talented, the script is fine, the show moves at a good pace.
But at the end of the evening one has to ask, "What was that all about?"
Not much other than an opportunity for seven struggling actors to showcase their talents and sell tickets to their extended family and friends.
My advice: Take the stairs.
