Calendar Boy Productions and the Strawberry One-Act Festival presented:
THE COMMUTERS or A CAUTIONARY TALE ABOUT THE PORT AUTHORITY
Book by Gil Varod, Music by Caleb Damschroder, Lyrics by Kit Goldstein Grant
Developed at the New York Library of the Performing Arts Across a Crowded Room series

When a recently-sacked MTA executive wanders the Port Authority Bus Terminal after midnight, the plaster 'Commuters' sculpture comes to life to tell him how he is to pay for his subway-related sins. When it comes to New York Transit, you better behave or better be brave! "THE COMMUTERS or A CAUTIONARY TALE ABOUT THE PORT AUTHORITY" is a PG-rated, good old-fashioned, New York-minded transit-obsessed comedy. In August 2015, the musical presented its first reading as part of Lincoln Center's 'Across A Crowded Room' workshop for a panel of theatrical luminaries to uproarious laughter and uncomfortably high praise.

July 15, 18, and 20, 2016, the Theatre at St. Clement's, 423 West 46th Street, NYC
