The Select (The Sun Also Rises)

Off Broadway Performance Art Play - Drama — 

Elevator Repair Service completes its staging of a trilogy of classic American works with The Select ( The Sun Also Rises), a staging of Ernest Hemingway's novel.

A stage littered with liquor bottles and cafe chairs transforms seamlessly from Paris cafes to Pamplona streets. After their highly acclaimed adaptations of The Great Gatsby and The Sound and the Fury, ERS turns its sights on Hemingway's alcohol-soaked expatriates in this world premiere that features the ensemble's trademark sound design and highly energized choreography. Hemingway's dry wit, a doomed romance and even live bullfighting (as re-imagined by ERS) make this a compelling conclusion to ERS' exploration of modernist American literature of the 1920's

DIRECTOR'S NOTE BY JOHN COLLINS

Reading aloud to each other over and over, testing different physical configurations and theatrical styles, we devised a new approach for this book. For The Select, we found ourselves paring and editing and focusing our work on Hemingway's taut and witty dialogue.  Whereas we treated the entire text of Gatsby as a play, speaking every word as dialogue, in The Sun Also Rises we have uncovered a play inside the novel.
