Previews will begin Feb. 17 with an official opening night slated for March 3. The engagement is scheduled to run through March 27.

The production features scenic design by Riccardo Hernandez; costume design by Montana Blanco; lighting design by Yi Zhao; sound design by Matt Tierney; and fight direction by Thomas Schall.
