Errico and Silverman starred in Classic Stage Company's 2013 revival of Passion.
The production will have choreography by Barry McNabb, scenic design by James Morgan, costume design by David Toser, lighting design by Mary Jo Dondlinger, musical supervision by John Bell, and dialect coaching by Stephen Gabis.
