Stuck Elevator is a comic-rap-scrap-metal-operatic musical prompted by the real-life experience of a deliveryman who gets trapped in an elevator after delivering a routine order of shrimp fried rice.
Working at Happy Dragon Restaurant in the Bronx, our hero pays a $60,000 debt to smugglers for his passage from China to the United States; from a country touted as the next global economic superpower to a country founded on the ideals of democracy and freedom. After 81 hours, he emerges transformed.
Follow the saga of this undocumented Chinese immigrant/indentured slave in 21st century America.
