"Two strangers, a psychologist (Andrea McArdle) and an unemployed ad man (Kip Gilman) find themselves alone on a San Francisco commuter train at 4 AM, each doing their New York Times crossword puzzles," according to press notes. "But before their crosswords are solved, they find that they may have solved the puzzles of their own lives."

The 90-minute show is presented Wednesday and Saturday evenings at 8 PM with Sunday matinees at 2 PM.

Tickets, beginning at $39.50, are available at or by calling (212) 239-6200. For more information visit
