Featuring a book, music, and lyrics by Academy Award winner Kristen Anderson-Lopez (Frozen), James-Allen Ford, Russ Kaplan, and Sara Wordsworth, In Transit is directed and choreographed by three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall.

In Transit, which played a successful Off-Broadway run, is described as a “new, modern musical, bringing to life a vivid tapestry of characters and music.” It uses an a cappella score to follow the intertwining lives of 11 New Yorkers who connect on and below the streets of the city that never sleeps.

The production features scenic design by Tony Award winner Donyale Werle, costume design by Tony winner Clint Ramos, lighting design by Tony winner Donald Holder, and sound design by Ken Travis. Casting is by Binder Casting, Inc.

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.
