In Transit On Broadway A Capella Musical

In Transit On Broadway

If you follow along with us on Social Media you know we are a  Broadway Family.  When Broadway Wiz reached out to us to review , In Transit  A Cappella Musical.We immediately said YES! The musical set in New York City that chronicles the lives of 11 different people.

The baseline set by Boxman (Chesney Snow), for thinking outside of the box, creates a continuation foundational heartbeat  for the entire performance and the connection between each of the characters.

In Transit is a Must See

In Transit is a Must See

The 11 member ensemble did a great job of creating the effect of a full orchestra in the non-existent orchestra pit. Each of the characters had their own individual story-line that the audience could resonate with.  Whether it is our own story, that of a friend or family member, or even just something we witnessed within society.

 Ali (Erin Mackey), the girl who dropped everything and moved cross-country for a boy.
Trent (Justin Guarini) and Steven (Telly Leung), a gay couple struggling with the acceptance of their life choices from friends and family, especially from Trent’s Mom (Moya Angela).

Nate (James Snyder) the overall well liked guy who makes one mistake and everything falls out from underneath him.

Jane (Margo Seibert) the wanna-be actress who moves to NYC but lives the life of a temp to pay the bills until an audition works in her favor.

The show portrays lifestyles that each one of us could relate to. In Transit shows us that we are not alone in the our lifes journey.  I was able watch each character through the various obstacles of life.  Watching them intertwine  their life paths as each story-line unfolded. Sticking by one another and not giving up on your dreams, but doing what you have to, so you can do what you love. The subtle one liners , pop-culture, and everyday references kept the performance fresh and relevant.

In Transit is playing at Circle In the Square , 235 W 50th Street

Guys & Dolls Westchester Broadway Theatre Opens April 11, 2013

A few weeks ago my husband and I were fortunate enough to grab some Mommy and Daddy time and went to see In The Heights at Westchester Broadway Theatre ever  since then we have been looking forward to the opening of Guys & Dolls on April 11, 2013.

Guys & Dolls which is set in the colorful world during the prohibition in New York City.  Is  Considered to be one of the greatest musicals of all time. Guys & Dolls is populated with gangsters ,gamblers, missionary dolls ,beautiful showgirls, and has one of the greatest musical scores in the history of American theatre. Including hits such as  “Luck Be A Lady”, “Guys and Dolls”, “If I Were A Bell, and “Sit Down Your Rockin’ The Boat”.

Sky Masterson & Sarah Brown

New York being the city that never sleeps. The news seller , nor the chorus girl,   the gambler and the missionary, everyone seems to get caught up in the teeming vitality of the city streets. Every character has a story from Damon Runyon’s whose story include’s Sergeant Sarah Brown (Courtney Glass), of the Save a Soul Mission, vainly trying to spread the word, and make a difference to the sin and depravity of the streets, full of tipsters, gamblers, and con men. Adelaide (Allie Schauer), the showgirl who is desperate to leave behind her seemingly glamorous lifestyle for a white picket fence and roses round the door.  Then there is Nathan Detroit (Michael Brian Dunn), trying to find yet another new location for his floating dice game all while trying to keep just one short step ahead of the law. Let’s not forget the  gamblers themselves, eager for just one more roll. All waiting for that winning streak that will keep them ahead of the game.  And the coolest high roller of them all, Sky Masterson (Gary Lynch), who would bet on anything that would turn him a profit.
