Additional Info

This two-part, two-person rock musical was a long-running, award-winning hit Off-Broadway. Acclaimed by New York critics as the freshest musical since Hair, it is a sad and funny spoof of computerized claustrophobia in a world where one mechanical breakdown can end it all. In the first act, Isaac and Ingrid are trapped in an elevator. They talk, make a fumbling try at sex and depart. In the second act, Isaac is in jail with a television that sends and receives pictures. Alice is in the next cell. Though Isaac and Alice can only see each other through their television screens, they try to communicate.
