Elevator speeches

There are metaphors a-go-go in this invite to an evening of readings with a live sound score to benefit Elevator Repair Service. Matthew Diffee's "Tape on Books," and Maggie Hoffman's graphic design reinforce books, tape, reading, and the importance of handicraft, not to mention stage craft. Me, I'm not wild about the typography, being uptight and all, but my reaction doesn't matter; the approach is perfect for ERS.

The lineup is impressive and includes Paul Muldoon (curator), Oskar Eustis (host), and readers (Lili Taylor etc.).
