Who would think a Broadway producer would consider creating a show about a bunch of New Yorkers that are riding the subway trains? Well just now it has been announced that the creators of Newsies and Frozen have teamed up again and have agreed to put on a brand new musical appropriately named In Transit.
In Transit first appeared Off Broadway in 2010 and won a Drama Desk Award for the Outstanding Ensemble company of a show. In Transit received very positive reviews from the critics and did quite well at the box office.
In Transit follows life on the subway and captures the lives of 11 New Yorkers that are all looking to "catch the express train to success, love and happiness...and the stops along the way".
In transit has a book, music and lyrics written by Kristen Anderson-Lopez, who won an Academy Award for Frozen and she'll also team up with James-Allen Ford, Russ Kaplan and Sara Wordsworth. In addition vocal arrangements for In Transit will be created by Deke Sharon (The Sing-Off, Pitch Perfect) as the music is performed A Capella, without instruments. That'll be a first for Broadway for sure. Broadway regular Kathleen Marshall (Nice Work If You Can Get It, Anything Goes) will handle choreography and direction duties for the show.
Plans right now call for In Transit to go into the intimate Circle In The Square Theatre sometime after its current show- Fun Home closes on September 10, 2016.
