Colin Hanlon to Join Broadway's In Transit
Hanlon will take on a role in the new a cappella musical.
Stage and screen vet Colin Hanlon (Falsettos) will join the Broadway cast of In Transit beginning January 10 at the Circle in the Square Theatre. Hanlon will take on the role of Steven, replacing Telly Leung, who has taken a leave of absence due to an "unexpected personal family obligation."
Directed and choreographed by Tony winner Kathleen Marshall, the a cappella musical is inspired by the rhythms of the subway as various characters find their way in New York City. It features a book, music, and lyrics by Anderson-Lopez, James-Allen Ford, Russell Kaplan, and Sara Wordsworth. The production will have vocal arrangements by Deke Sharon and musical supervision by Rick Hip-Flores.
In Transit also stars David Abeles (Once), Moya Angela (Ghost), Steven "Heaven" Cantor, Justin Guarini (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown), Erin Mackey (Amazing Grace), Gerianne Pérez, Margo Seibert (Rocky), Chesney Snow, James Snyder (If/Then), Mariand Torres, Nicholas Ward (On the Town), Adam Bashian, Laurel Harris (Beautiful — The Carole King Musical), Arbender Robinson (Shuffle Along), and Aurelia Williams.
The production features scenic design by Donyale Werle (Peter and the Starcatcher), costume design by Clint Ramos (Eclipsed), lighting design by Tony Award winner Donald Holder (She Loves Me), and sound design by Ken Travis (Aladdin).
