Featured in the cast are Asia Kate Dillon (Orange Is The New Black), Molly Ranson (Carrie), Mayaa Boateng, Tom Coiner, Alex Esola, Emma Meltzer, Doron Mitchell, and Flor De Liz Perez.
The show is described as follows: "Good Men Wanted brings to life the incredible true stories of renegade women who disguised themselves as men to fight in the Civil War. In a searing drama punctuated by explosive dance sequences set to contemporary pop music, five women of vastly different backgrounds become warriors and spies, endure prison camps and midnight raids, and ultimately intersect at America's most storied battlefield, Gettysburg. These unsung heroes circumvented the limitations of their time, with a boldness that speaks loudly to our own."
The creative team includes Ani Taj (choreography), Jason Sherwood (scenic design), Tilly Grimes (costume design), Jake DeGroot (lighting design), and M.L. Dogg (sound design).
