New Projects: In Transit

Leave a comment

October 3, 2012 by fansiesalliance

Here at Fansies Alliance, we support our Newsies through it all, whether they’re singing and dancing at the Nederlander or have moved on to other projects.

That’s why we’ve created the New Projects category for our blog. It’s a place where we’ll feature what all of the Newsies of old are up to…from the creative team to the actors who brought the show to life.

If we’re missing anything or anyone, let us know in the comments below!

In Transit

Christopher Gatelli, our amazing Tony-Award winning Choreographer, is onboard to direct a new project, the a capella musical “In Transit,” which producers Janet B. Rosen and Christina Papagjika are aiming for a commercial run in the near future.

Gatelli will lead the reading, which will feature the talents of Lindsay Mendez (Godspell, Dogfight), Adam Bashian, Moya Campbell, Ben Crawford, Justin Keyes, Erin Mackey and Chesney Snow.

Snow appeared in the musical’s 2010 world premiere at Off Broadway’s Primary Stages. He’ll play the narrator-beatboxer in the entirely a cappella tuner, which follows a group of disparate characters as their lives intersect in Gotham’s public transportation system.

No details had been finalized regarding a production timeline or whether “In Transit” would land on Broadway or off it, adding that the coming reading (and any investor interest it generates) would help firm up some of those details. The Rialto appears to be the preferred destination for a show that could mobilize as early as the spring.

Invitation-only readings are set for Oct. 12.
