After premiering Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in 2008, Saved authors Michael Friedman (music/lyrics), John Dempsey (book) and Rinne Groff (book) have continued to develop the musical based on the 2004 film about a group of Christian high school students.
According to KC Rep, "Saved is a story about a group of Christian high school students seeking acceptance and inclusion as they search for meaning in their complicated lives."
