A ‘Modern’ Elevator Interruption
Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Julie Bowen and Eric Stonestreet of “Modern Family” found themselves stuck in an elevator in Kansas City on Friday.
What is there to do when you’re stuck in an elevator with your co-stars and a dozen others?
Share it on Twitter, of course.
On Friday night, Modern Family’s Jesse Tyler Ferguson posted a photo from inside an elevator from the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel, along with Julie Bowen, Eric Stonestreet and other hotel guests. The trio was on their way to a Boys & Girls fundraiser in Stonestreet's hometown when the elevator stopped moving.
According to the Kansas City Star, members of the local fire department eventually worked their way down from the 40th floor to free everyone. The stars were about one hour late for their stage appearance.
“I honestly handled being stuck in an elevator for 50min better than I thought. All @jessetyler did was pass wind,” Stonestreet shared on Twitter.
“after a quick hour trapped in the service elevator, we were rescued by Duke and the Fire dept. here’s a photo from inside,” echoed Bowen.
And just in case anyone was wondering, their elevator debacle did make its way into their jokes on stage.
“Have a great night and don’t use the elevators!” Stonestreet said when he wrapped the show, the Kansas City Star reports.
