The show is directed by Doug Hughes and stars Brendan Fraser, Denis O'Hare, Jennifer Coolidge, Jeremy Shamos, and Richard Easton.
The creative team includes Scott Pask (scenic design), Kenneth Posner (lighting design), Catherine Zuber (costume design) and David Van Tieghem (original music and sound design).
