Trapped together on a stalled New York City subway car, six strangers confront their assumptions of one another under the scrutinizing eye of a mysterious homeless man, authentically played by Giancarlo Esposito. A musical for modern times, Stuck counterbalances its claustrophobic setting with impassioned songs and fully realized characters, each vocalizing their stories through memory and fantasy. The talented cast (which includes Ashanti, Amy Madigan, Tim Young, Aden Cho, Omar Chapparo, Gerard Canonico, and Reyna de Courcy) leaps through the screen and grips us with the realization that each of us carries some silent burden waiting to be proclaimed. The Manhattan underground is eerie and cold as a backdrop to the songs and stories, allowing Stuck to truly come alive through its characters. As they reveal their histories, struggles and prejudices, they also recognize their shared experiences, breaking the barriers between strangers on an urban metro.
