Broadway Takes To The Subway

New York commuters get to see some pretty spectacular performances in the subway on a regular basis – now add a theater performance to the review. The group that brought their noir thriller play to Central Park restrooms will be selling tickets to “IRT: A Tragedy in Three Stations”, set in a subway station early this February. This isn’t just any small production though. The full-scale theatrical production includes costume changes, props, set-dress and a cast and crew thirty-five strong. The Post reports:

At a dress rehearsal on Saturday night, the production faced obstacles familiar to every straphanger – stalled trains, delays due to track work, and all the other uncertainties of public transit in New York City.

Add to that the need to carry a full-size desk and film projector onto trains, and you have one of the most technically difficult theater productions ever staged in the city.
