"Michael Thurber In Transit: Thurber Theater" is a concert featuring the composer and bassist’s far-reaching and genre-bounding artistic community performing highlights from both his own independent material and work composed for various Mobile Unit productions. Part of the Mobile Unit and Joe’s Pub’s collaborative series, In Transit, Thurber’s show will tour through the end of January to community venues, including January 26 at Pelham Fritz Recreation Center.    

This musical variety show lead by Michael Thurber is quickly becoming one of the most eclectic and entertaining shows in the city. The show features a broad array of genres and performers from diverse musical backgrounds. From rappers to classical violinists to Broadway vocalists to rock guitarists to jazz saxophonists to sitar players and everything in between, the audience will experience culture-crossing collaborations in a casual, entertaining format.
