Callahan as Gary, Billy Carter as Robert, Zara Devlin as Raphina, Gus Halper as Brendan, Jakeim Hart as Larry, Martin Moran as Brother Baxter, Anne L. Nathan as Sandra, Johnny Newcomb as Barry, Brenock O'Connor as Conor, Gian Perez as Kevin, Sam Poon as Eamon, Skyler Volpe as Anne, Amy Warren as Penny, Anthony Genovesi as Declan, with off-stage covers Dashiell Eaves, Ilan Eskenazi, and Michael Lepore.

The production's creative team includes scenic and costume design by Bob Crowley, lighting design by Natasha Katz, sound design by Peter Hylenski, video and projection design by Luke Halls and Brad Peterson, music supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Martin Lowe, with Fred Lassen as music director.
