Ito Aghayere, Jojo Gonzalez, Kevin Mambo, and Sahr Ngaujah will star in the production. Under the direction of Jo Bonney, the creative team will include Riccardo Hernandez (scenic design), Jennifer Moeller (costume design), Lap Chi Chu (lighting design), Darron L. West (sound design), Justin Hicks (original music), and Chris Walker (movement direction).
