About the show

Part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival, this new musical takes us into the NYC subway, where six strangers are trapped on a stalled subway car. More…

Something’s up down below. A couple who have just concluded an unsuccessful blind date, a discouraged medical student, a pregnant woman, a gay young man whose boy friend is cheating on him, a disgruntled business man, and a bag lady are trapped on a stalled subway car. These six strangers discover it's not just the train that's stuck. In spite of their diversity, they open up with one another. Relationships are broken and begun. A career commitment is revisited. A poignant musical comedy about making connections, living in the moment, and moving on in life. Oh, and one more thing: a woman just went into labor.

Theater In The Now

"'Held Momentarily' is just another musical about people getting stuck on the train. Only it’s the most realistic. In it’s current form, 'Held Momentarily' is mediocre and will easily get lost in the shuffle. At such a short running time, building up the story and characters will be essential for any hope for the future." Full Review

Banal, Cliched, Disappointing, Quirky, Indulgent

See it if You've never actually been in NYC... then you might believe this load of hogwash.

Don't see it if You want something more out of musicals than 1dimensional cliches who hit every single predictable beat that you see coming in the 1st scene
