FEATURING: The Elevator Showcase
We're so proud of all of our member shows and teams. And in this new series, we're going to check in with them to see how the experience has been so far. Today we check in with The Elevator Showcase, produced by Ashley Whitehurst and Bruce Holtman.
The Elevator Showcase features artists of various genres for five minutes each. It's amazing to see what people can do with a tight five!
