Inspired by the vibrant rhythms of life on the subway, 'In Transit' follows the intertwining lives of 11 New Yorkers, all hoping to catch the express train to success, love, and happiness—and the stops they make along the way. With a book, music, and lyrics by Academy Award winner Kristen Anderson-Lopez ('Frozen'), James-Allen Ford, Russ Kaplan, and Sara Wordsworth, and vocal arrangements by Deke Sharon ('Pitch Perfect'), 'In Transit' is directed and choreographed by three-time Tony Award winner Kathleen Marshall ('Anything Goes,' 'Nice Work If You Can Get It'). Inspired by an earlier incarnation of 'In Transit,' which played Off-Broadway in 2010.

See it if 20-somethings seeking their way in New York City. Smooth pop sound, simple characters, clever quips about NY life. Lively and fun.
Don't see it if You are looking for more drama, depth or subtlety. It's pleasing but a bit shallow with a tidy ending. The a cappella is excellent.

Don't see it if you want a full fledged Broadway musical; this is entertaining and well done but would be better suited to Off Broadway.
See it if you enjoy light entertainment with terrific singing and fun staging. Nothing earth shattering or thought provoking, just fun and talent.

See it if you like the theme of people trying to get somewhere (both physically on the subway and metaphorically in their careers, relationship, etc.)
Don't see it if you can't stand acapella or beatboxing. Also if you're a tourist and have not used the subways many references/humor will be lost on you.
See it if You dont mind a rather cliched set of storylines very well sung in an interesting and new/old style.
Don't see it if You don't like a gay v Bible dichotomy. You don't like beat box.
See it if you have ever been a NYC commuter. It's a tribute to the "joys" of using the MTA. Snow, Siebert, Snyder, Mackey, Angela & Guarini all shine.
Don't see it if you can't abide 1 more show where a committed gay couple can't kiss but the straight ppl smooch 1 hour after meeting. 2 points off for that.
See it if A fun experience if you're a musical fan, inventive and clever. Some fine talent, lots of singing - a capella - and a sendup of NYC subways.

Also Sadly it's closing in a few days. Glad I got to see it.
See it if you appreciate modern musicals without bells & whistles (unmissed here; the beat-boxing and singing is incredible); want a 1.5 hour escape.
Don't see it if pursuing something incredibly deep, overly-emotional, or mentally-taxing. This is pure "leave-your-problems-at-the-door" fare, and it's fun.

See it if you love musical theater.
Don't see it if you are looking for a traditional musical. It isn't a traditional musical. It's something wonderfully new!!!
See it if musicals are your thing. Fun show, great cast, EXCELLENT singing. OFF-bdwy might be better, although playing in one of my fave bdwy houses.

See it if You are interested in an original, entertaining musical done in acapella format. The cast is full of very talented performers.
Don't see it if Acapella musicals about life in NYC are not your cup of tea. The show moves quickly, without intermission, and goes down easy.
See it if you love a cappella music and shows about life in NYC. The singing was extremely tight and the cast rose to the challenge of this show.
Don't see it if you are seeking a strong story line. While the show was entertaining, the plot was a little forced, although some resonant moments.
See it if You like harmonies; a light, bouncy, friendly and slightly weird entertainment, solidly performed; New York; or if you work for the MTA.
Don't see it if You're repelled by novelty, the subway system or the all too familiar downsides of living in NYC.
