It's no secret that service changes on the L train are well underway, and it's giving a group of comedians the L train blues.

The struggle dates back three years, when plans for an L train shutdown were first announced.
This past January, there was a curveball, with officials announcing that the L train would not be shutting down after all. Instead, trains are running every 20 minutes on nights and weekends.
Comedians involved in the musical parody, "The Day the L Train Died,” say there is still plenty to complain about.

"Maybe it's not dead, but it's slowly dying over the next 15 months," says Andrew Leibman, producer.

To make light of the situation, the comedians repurposed the lyrics to “American Pie” in a way any New Yorker can appreciate. 

"I want people to feel a sense of relief and have people know that people are laughing. They're not alone in this struggle," says Adam Gold, producer.
