Subways Are for Sleeping features a score by Jule Styne and book and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The musical, according to press notes, "tells the tale of a Angie, a lady reporter sent to get the scoop on a segment of NYC society that lives by their own rules. These carefree souls take up odd jobs to earn enough to get a place to sleep and food to eat, eschewing a drone-like existence. When Angie learns how the other half lives, she begins to see there might be another way to experience the world."
