Based on the novel The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
Created by Elevator Repair Service
Directed by John Collins

View Website

Limited engagement—internationally-acclaimed Elevator Repair Service had audiences lining out the door for The Sound and the Fury and for Gatz, which The New York Times declared “The most remarkable achievement in theater not only of this year but also of this decade.” Now, ERS completes its trilogy of classic American works with The Select (The Sun Also Rises), an inspired staging of Ernest Hemingway’s masterpiece novel. With cutting wit, doomed romance, and a live bullfight that has to be seen to be believed, this is an exquisite, wine-soaked homage to one of the finest novels ever written. The Select promises a smart and compelling conclusion to ERS’ exploration of some of the greatest American literature.
