The Purple Line coming soon to a Theater near you.

I laughed, I cried, It was much better than Cats.

The struggles of a few loyal riders on a Purple Line platform in 2014 is the setting for a new play called “Tracks” by Paul Stregevsky from Poolsville Maryland. Stregevsky hopes that by winning a contest he can secure a one day spot at the Strathmore Music Center during the 2009-2010 season. Why stop there? I would love to see the play at the Clarice Smith Center for Performing Arts. Maybe even someday I can ride the Purple Line to see the play about the Purple Line.

“Tracks” is set in 2014 when the Purple Line, a 16-mile proposed light rail project running from Bethesda and New Carrollton via Silver Spring, has supposedly been completed. Most of the action and the 23 musical numbers take place on the platform of an isolated station at the extreme end of the line. The transit authority has announced that unless at least 18 riders use the station every day, it will close.

Close? CLOSE? Lets get the darn thing open first!
