Kevin Shinick — known to television audiences as the host of "Where In Time Is Carmen Sandiego?" — adapts and directs the new work. The actor also heads a cast that includes Jennifer Carta, David Hutson, Ron McClary, Sonya Rokes and Michael Suvorov.

Ideal Theatricals presents the work by Shinick. The company teamed up with the director-adapter on the stagework Spider-Man Live!
