Stand clear of the closing doors please! Set aboard the New York Subway, this a capella show captures intimate, touching--and often hilarious--musical snapshots of an array of city dwellers, each "between stations" in their lives. An aspiring actress thinking of making her temp job permanent; a perpetually single "nice guy;" a gay man whose mother refuses to let him out of the closet; and a parade of other quirky characters come to life through an eclectic all-vocal score that draws on pop, jazz, hip-hop, country, and even reggae.
