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.
