American Conservatory Theater: Stuck Elevator

IMG_3184I am so proud to be working on this production as the assistant director.
This is a story that must be told – a story of an invisible immigrant who works so hard for the love of his family.

World Premiere Musical – Stuck Elevator

Music by Byron Au Yong
Libretto by Aaron Jafferis
Directed by Chay Yew

A visionary new work based on the true story of a Chinese deliveryman who was trapped in a Bronx elevator for 81 hours. Sounding the alarm will open the doors to freedom, but calling for help also means calling for attention—with dire consequences for this undocumented immigrant. Inventively staged by internationally acclaimed artist Chay Yew—and introducing the prodigious work of a brilliant young composing team—Stuck Elevator unleashes an evocative collision of stories, sounds, instruments, and ideas.

The show premiered on April 16, 2013
