Starring Jacquelyn Piro as Lizzie Curry and Matt Bogart as Starbuck, the production will feature two new songs: "The Way a Man Gets Got," to be performed by Lizzie and the Curry family, and "Evenin' Star," a solo for Starbuck. Theatre veteran Jonathan Tunick has created new orchestrations for the staging, which is being directed by Signature's artistic director Eric Schaeffer and runs through March 2.

About his cast and creative team, Schaeffer said in a recent statement, "We’ve got a conflagration of talent here. Harvey and Tom are truly legendary, and to have them extend their glorious score for us is a dream come true. To bring Jonathan Tunick into the mix means that we have three of the greatest names in Broadway musical history right here at Signature Theatre."

The Signature Theatre is located at 3806 South Four Mile Run Drive, Arlington, VA. Tickets for the production, priced between $20 and $38, are available by calling (800) 955-5566 or (703) 218-6500. Visit http://www.sig-online.org.
