Last Saturday, I saw Elevator Repair Service’s production of William Faulkner’s The Sound and The Fury at The Public Theater conveniently bordering on Little Tokyo. My admiration for Elevator Repair Service predates this blog. The company is named after the results of the Artistic Director’s Kuder preference test results and includes Ben Iverson, the best bad dancer in the world. They have also produced The Great Gatsby and Arguendo based on a US Supreme Court oral argument.

I enjoyed the literary theatricality of this performance and the great bad dancing. If you are familiar with The Sound and the Fury, then you already know that this is a niche show. But even if this is not your niche, you might want to go so you can hear people talking like Woody Allen movie New Yorkers.
