The NYC Subway System serves
as a microcosm for lives "between stations"...
in In Transit, touted as the first Broadway a Capella musical.
It opened on Broadway in December of 2016.
11 New Yorkers who aren't quite "there yet."
The reviews were all over the place,
with the Times finding the characters sterotypical,
and the gritty subway venue underused.
The cast album, however, was praised,
thanks to the exceptional arrangements of Deke Sharon.
The show went "out of service" in April of 2017.

An Evening With Sutton Foster:
Live At The Cafe Carlyle
was recorded in 2011,
and features songs from her star turns
along with some juicy jazz standards.
We'll hear a medley of Sutton's Broadway hits,
plus the nifty "Air Conditioner" written by Christine Lavin
(see her Future Fossils album for one of her
War Paint wars on!
Patti Lupone and Christine Ebersole...
with "Beauty In The World",
the meeting of minds that "never happened."
The music of Scott Frankel, lyrics Michael Korie.
That song in particular brings me back to that writing team's
earlier work, Grey Gardens.
We'll also hear
with John Dossett and Douglas Sills
(the "partners" of Arden and Rubenstein)
comparing notes and trading pterodactyl screams...
