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.”
The creative team includes scenic design by Tony Award winner Donyale Werle (Peter and the Starcatcher), costume design by Tony Award winner Clint Ramos (Eclipsed), lighting design by Tony Award winner Donald Holder (The King and I), sound design by Ken Travis (Aladdin) and casting by Binder Casting, Inc.
