Transit Theatre Takes Over the Streetcar This Weekend for Experimental Performances

Take the streetcar and get a dose of theatrics.

The experimental Transit Theatre project brings the theater directly to the public via the venue of the Cincinnati streetcar. And hey, you can ride for free during three different four-hour theater sessions.

Stay for the full four-hour, 10-scene revue or hop on and off. Backed by local philanthropic lab People’s Liberty, join Matthew David Gellin — the founder of American Legacy Theatre — and view these sketches that explore social issues. This round’s theme? Gentrification. 

4-8 p.m. Saturday and 4-8 p.m. Nov. 9 and 10. Free. Cincinnati Streetcar, Downtown and Over-the-Rhine,
