The change has been made to accommodate the shooting schedule for the musical's star, Christopher Sieber, who will be filming a pilot.

The piece is based on sex columnist Dan Savage's book The Kid: What Happened After My Boyfriend and I Decided to Go Get Pregnant and features music by Andy Monroe, book by Michael Zam, and lyrics by Jack Lechner.
