Alfredo Narcisco and Laurel Casillo in “Elevada” at Yale Repertory Theatre. (Carol Rosegg)


“GORGEOUS! Sheila Callaghan writes some of the most engaging dialogue I have heard in a long time, capturing the rhythms of contemporary speech and the quirks of character. And then it suddenly pivots with an observation or an insight that Makes you gasp in its honesty and beauty.” –Hartford Courant

Elevada rewards its audience on many levels, chief among them its knack for affirming love and life without pandering or sugarcoating. The play hasn’t a dishonest bone in its body. Yale Rep’s world premiere is likely as fresh and satisfying as one will experience.” –New Haven Register

“One of the freshest and most engrossing pieces of theatre I have enjoyed all season!” –Connecticut Arts Connection

“A smart modern romantic comedy…There are genuine emotions being revealed here, in genuinely revelatory ways. Its characters are intelligent and driven, and interestingly hampered by emotional issues or (in one case) addictive behavior…. Yes, Elevada elevates.” –New Haven Theater Jerk

“Entertaining and satisfying.” –-StageScene LA

“Razor-sharp dialogue… quirky comedic sensibilities…[Elevada] captivates us from the opening scene and never lets go…” —Acting Solo
