Ed Rendell—the former governor of Pennsylvania, mayor of Philadelphia, and Chair of the Democratic National Committee—and his past campaign fund-raiser and fellow Ballard Spahr lawyer Kenneth M. Jarin are among the coproducers investing in In Transit, the subway musical on Broadway.

The cast of Broadway veterans as well as reality-TV stars—including Bucks County's Justin Guarini (ex of American Idol), Moya Angela (America's Got Talent), and Steven Cantor (American Beatbox Championship)—portrays 11 subway riders through song, a capella, mostly in ensemble. In Transit has had a promising first month, with several sellout performances.
