Susan H. Schulman (The Sound of Music, Sunset Boulevard, Little Women) directs the intimate, two-person musical that will run through Aug. 28. Cleale portrays Michael opposite Baldwin as Agnes. Baldwin earned a Best Actress Tony Award nomination for her work in the Broadway revival of Finian's Rainbow. She starred in the world premiere of the Hal Prince-Susan Stroman musical Paradise Found at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London earlier this summer.

Cleale was recently seen Off-Broadway in The Fantasticks. He appeared in the Broadway productions of Amour, Spamalot, Swingin' On A Star and Once Upon A Mattress.

I Do! I Do! spans 50 years in the marriage of its central characters, Agnes and Michael.

Michael Lichtefeld choreographs with musical direction by Joel Fram. The design team also includes Wilson Chin (scenic design), Devon Painter (costume design), Philip Rosenberg (lighting design) and Domonic Sack (sound design).

Jones and Schmidt are best known for their long-running Off-Broadway musical The Fantasticks. They also have created the musicals 110 in the Shade, Celebration, Philemon, Mirette, Collette Collage and Grover's Corners.
