In Transit features book, music and lyrics by Kristen Anderson-Lopez, James-Allen Ford, Russ Kaplan and Sara Wordsworth. "In this fresh take on the modern musical," press note state, "seven performers take on multiple roles and create every note with their own voices for a rich theatrical experience unlike anything you've ever seen (or heard) on stage before. Inspired by the rhythms and sounds of life on the subway, In Transit follows an aspiring actress, a fledgling financier, a street-savvy beatboxer, a cab driver, and others as they find their way in New York City. The result is a vivid tapestry of characters and music in the City that never stands still."
The creative team includes Anna Louizos (set), Jennifer Caprio (costumes), Jeff Croiter (lights) and Jon Weston (sound). Mary-Mitchell Campbell is the music director. The production stage manager is Andrew Neal.
