Creating In Transit's Subterranean Subway Ambiance

Broadway's first a cappella musical, In Transit, is currently running at the Circle in the Square Theatre, with sets by Donyale Werle, lighting by Donald Holder, sound by Ken Travis, projections by Caite Hevner, and costumes by Clint Ramos. Variety calls Werle's "witty" New York City subway platform set "an ideal fit for the Circle in the Square configuration." Entertainment Weekly adds that the station is surrounded by seats with a treadmill down the center, with the audience on either side of the subway tracks and the characters caught in limbo in between. Variety gives a nod to Holder's lighting and Travis' sound design in helping to create the "subterranean ambiance." The New York Times also applauds Ramos' "showstopping dress fashioned from MetroCards." Watch a montage of scenes from the musical in the video above.
