The creative team is comprised of Raul Abrego (sets), Sarah Sidman (lights), Hochi Asiatico (costumes) and David Lawson (sound).

Cortines has worked extensively in theater and television in his native Dominican Republic, with roles including that of Marius in Les Misérables, at the National Theatre in Santo Domingo.
