Directed by Scott Elliott, The Whirligig is described as follows: "When, after much time away, Kristina is back in Berkshire County, word spreads fast that she and her ex-husband Michael are caring for their estranged, ailing daughter Julie. Brokenhearted and giddy with love and confusion, surprising visitors from Julie's complicated past practically trip over each other to reach the young woman they thought they'd lost years before but still feel so deeply connected to."

The creative team includes scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Clint Ramos, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, sound design by M.L. Dogg, original music by Duncan Sheik, and special effects design by Jeremy Chernick.
