*Season 1 Episode 7 - MTA: the Musical - Book, Music, and Lyrics by Peter Saxe, with additional book by Christopher Michaels*
On a sweltering summer morning on a crowded subway platform, three strangers, each very different from the others, wait for a train that is running on major delay after major delay. The longer they wait, the hotter they get. The hotter they get, the more irritated they become. In a funny and at times touching mini-musical, we go on a rollercoaster ride as these strangers go from frustration to sexual frustration, learning that sometimes you've gotta take the opportunities that come to you, no matter how awkward and irritating they might be.
