New York is the city that never stands still...too bad, since there's so much to notice if you only take the time! You can see NYC through fresh eyes at In Transit, an innovative take on the modern musical which celebrates life in the greatest city in the world, as well as the power and versatility of the human voice.
Eleven actors take on multiple roles -- a feisty aspiring actress, a street-savvy beatboxer, a sassy MTA attendant, an ex-banker with an identity crisis, and many more -- giving us a vivid tapestry of ordinary (or not-so-ordinary) people finding their way in New York City. And since it's the people that create New York's magic, In Transit has taken that message to heart...the show's music is performed entirely a cappella, with every note and sound effect created by the actors' own vocal chords.
It's a rich theatrical experience unlike anything you've ever seen (or heard) on stage before.
