A production spokesperson said they’ll perform "most (if not all) of the songs, but not dialogue and not in the order of the show." The concert will not take the place of a regular Broadway performance. The show will play its normal schedule at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre that week.

The performance reportedly will mark the first time a currently-running Broadway musical will perform as part of the SummerStage festival.
