    Synopsis: 

    Elevator Repair Service combines elements of slapstick comedy, hi-tech and lo-tech design, both literary and found text, found objects and discarded furniture, and the group's own highly developed style of choreography. Recently, the ensemble's focus has turned to literature with shows based on the work of Henry James, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Jack Kerouac. ERS's new work is based on William Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury, developed during several residencies at NYTW.

But I really had no idea of how long I had been sitting in a state of rapt, oddly contented confusion at New York Theater Workshop, where the production opened on Tuesday night. The minutes had shrunk, stretched, flown, crept, sagged and stood still, sometimes all at once.
