In Transit, the a cappella musical that played a critically acclaimed run Off-Broadway, will begin previews November 10 at Broadway’s Circle in the Square, prior to a December 11 opening night.

Casting and creative team have not been announced.

Circle in the Square is currently home to the Tony-winning musical Fun Home, which will end its run September 10.

Advance tickets for In Transit go on sale to American Express Card Members July 25 (10 AM/EST) through August 2 (9:59 AM EST). Audience Rewards members will have advance ticket access from August 2 (10 AM EST) through August 8 (9:59 AM EST).

Tickets will go on sale to the general public August 8 at 10 AM/EST at Telecharge.com. Tickets range from $89-$159.

With a book, music and lyrics by Academy Award winner Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Frozen), James-Allen Ford, Russ Kaplan and Sara Wordsworth, vocal arrangements by Deke Sharon (Pitch Perfect, The Sing-Off) and musical supervision by Rick Hip-Flores (Rocky), In Transit will be directed and choreographed by three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall (Anything Goes, Nice Work If You Can Get It).

Featuring an a cappella score, In Transit, according to press notes, is a “new, modern musical bringing to life a vivid tapestry of characters and music in the city that never sleeps...or stands still. Inspired by the vibrant rhythms of life on the subway, In Transit follows the intertwining lives of eleven New Yorkers, all hoping to catch the express train to success, love and happiness...and the stops they make along the way.”

In Transit was originally produced Off-Broadway in fall 2010 by Primary Stages at 59E59. The limited run began previews September 21, 2010, and officially opened October 5, 2010, to positive reviews and was awarded the 2011 Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Ensemble. It also had a 2012 reading and was performed in a concert version at Feinstein's/54 Below in March.

In Transit is produced by Janet B. Rosen for Six Train Productions. Scott Landis serves as executive producer.
