Synopsis: "Featuring an a cappella score from the talents behind Frozen and Pitch Perfect, In Transit is a new, modern musical bringing to life a vivid tapestry of characters and music in the city that never sleeps...or stands still. Inspired by the vibrant rhythms of life on the subway, In Transit follows the intertwining lives of eleven New Yorkers, all hoping to catch the express train to success, love and happiness...and the stops they make along the way."

The cast of In Transit includes (in alphabetical order) David Abeles (Dave), Moya Angela (Momma/Mrs. Williams/Booth Lady), Steven 'Heaven' Cantor (Boxman), Justin Guarini (Trent), Telly Leung (Steven), Erin Mackey (Ali), Gerianne Pérez (Kathy), Margo Seibert (Jane), James Snyder (Nate), Mariand Torres (Nina) and Nicholas Ward (Chris), with Adam Bashian, Chesney Snow, Laurel Harris and Aurelia Williams.

The creative team behind In Transit has also been announced and features scenic design by Tony winner Donyale Werle, costume design by Tony winner Clint Ramos, lighting design by Tony winner Donald Holder and sound design by Ken Travis.

In Transit, which previously staged its New York premiere at Primary Stages in 2010, is producted on Broadway by Janet B. Rosen for Six Train Productions.
