Catch A Play On A New York Subway

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The New York City subways are full of crazies, but some of them are actually entertaining.

The Subway Theater is turning public transportation into a theatrical wonderland with the play IRT: A Tragedy in Three Stations, which will be performed entirely on different trains and platforms in New York’s subway system tomorrow (Jan. 29) through Saturday (Jan. 31).

Writer/director Jeff Stark made sure to pick the least crowded time and train to stage his show to avoid the weirdos, though he’s sure they’ve got nothing on his kooky crew.

He says, “We have 30 people in costume and props. We’re a bigger sort of crazy than the usual homeless men and drunks. Our crazy trumps their crazy.”

Though tickets for the show are available on, Stark is happy with the fact that “anyone can stumble across our show,” because it brings theater to the people.

He jokes, “We don’t have muscle there to keep people away, so we try to keep the route secret to avoid an overflow.”
