World Premiere
Elevator Repair Service’s
Created and Performed by Elevator Repair Service
Directed by John Collins
Featuring Maggie Hoffman, Mike Iveson, Vin Knight, Susie Sokol, Ben Williams

September 10 – October 6

Last year, The Public Theater co-produced Gatz (a unique word-for-word staging of The Great Gatsby), created and performed by Elevator Repair Service (ERS), one of America’s most acclaimed theater ensembles. This season, The Public reunites with ERS for a co-production of ARGUENDO, a playful riff on the 1991 Supreme Court case Barnes v. Glen Theatre. In this provocative case, a group of exotic dancers, citing the First Amendment, challenged a ban on public nudity. ERS stages the oral argument of the case verbatim with their signature theatricality, wit and physical precision. The production design features a breathtaking swirl of animated text projections by celebrated visual artist, Ben Rubin.

Elevator Repair Service creates original works, with an ongoing ensemble, that explore and challenge the fundamentals of live performance.
