Tresnjak, a Tony Award winner for A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder and currently represented on Broadway with Anastasia, recently announced his departure from Hartford Stage, concluding his run as artistic director after the 2018–2019 season. He is also set to helm the Metropolitan Opera's opening night production of Samson et Dalila this fall.

Cullman's current, Broadway production of Lobby Hero officially opens March 26 at Second Stage's Hayes Theater. He will also direct the Broadway premiere of Tarell Alvin McCraney's Choir Boy in early 2019, followed by Halley Feiffer's The Pain of My Belligerence at Playwrights Horizons.

The musical is set in 1979 New York City in the height of the chaos and revelry of Studio 54 and Mudd Clubb. Previous workshop presentations took play at New York Stage and Film and Vassar at the Powerhouse Theater in 2015 and 2017.
