Part Twilight Zone but wholly unique, The Lift is an ongoing audio drama featuring a mysterious girl who guides visitors to their transformations. The hall is dark and the overhead light flickers. Sounds echo, and there’s a creaking and clanging which gets louder as you stand in the semi-dark. The elevator opens and you’re offered a ride. A dark place whose original luster is now lost to time. The unlikely, old Victorian building sits overlooked by most on the edge of Pittsburgh. Originally built as a luxury residence for some of the city’s most well to do residents, it now serves a different purpose. Within its dilapidated walls sits The Lift. Step inside and ride it to the floor chosen for your transformation.
