The cast features Liz Callaway, Kevin Ceballo, Jonathan Dokuchitz, Eugene Fleming, Capathia Jenkins, Janine LaManna, Shannon Lewis, Rachelle Rak, Desmond Richardson, pit singers Farah Alvin and Nikki Renée Daniels as well as swings Allyson Turner and Eric Jordan Young.

The design team includes Derek McLane (set), Martin Pakledinaz (costume), Howell Binkley (lighting) and Brian Ronan (sound). Music direction and arrangements are by David Loud. Don Sebesky handles orchestrations.
