Story

What was the most perfect moment in your life? That’s the question nine New Yorkers are asked to consider when they find themselves on a stalled subway train. The trapped riders include a hard-driving lawyer, a bicycle messenger, a doorman, a wheelchair-bound elderly woman, a social-climbing younger woman, a celebrated interior designer, a right-wing radio personality and a pair of married doctors, plus the MTA employee who poses the cosmic question to the group. Their answers form the basis for this charming one-act musical, directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Susan Stroman.
