Seating is subject to availability. Tickets will be limited to two per person and will go on sale at 7pm at the Playwrights Horizons box office, located at 416 West 42nd Street.

Directed by Erica Schmidt and with choreography by Peter Pucci, the show features songs by Quincy Long and original music by Michael Roth. The eight-person cast includes Guy Boyd, Funda Duval, Dashiell Eaves, Annie Golden, Laura Heisler, Brian Hutchison, Kathy Santen, and Conrad John Schuck.
