Nighttime Traffic tells the story of a pair of guys who are supplied by a brazen Nursewith a mind-altering pill that slows time, turning one minute into one hour. Fueled by a sweeping contemporary score, Nighttime Traffic follows three characters through a world of thumping music, altered perceptions, and unanticipated inspiration as they spin minutes into moments and search for solace in unsettling times.
The musical was originally presented as a workshop production at Boston University in 2009, then as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival in 2010.
Attendance to the 4 PM and 7 PM presentations is by invite only, but industry members interested in attending should email NighttimeTraffic@gmail.com.
