The 14-member cast will feature Jennifer Cody (Taboo), Katie Rose Clarke (Wicked), Mark Jacoby (Elf), Jillian Louis (The Dinosaur Musical), Michael McCormick (Elf), Marcy McGuigan (The Divine Sister), Diane Phelan (Camelot), Wayne Pretlow (Jesus Christ Superstar), Jay Russell (End of the Rainbow), Tally Sessions (Giant), Kendal Sparks, Max Von Essen (Evita), Debra Walton (The Pajama Game), and Zakiya Young (Stick Fly). The limited-engagement will play five performances from March 7-9 at the York Theatre Company's home at Saint Peter's. Carl Andress directs with music direction by Christopher McGovern.
