Tony Award winner Tommy Tune directs the new stage work from Jersey Boys creators Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice. Noah Racey choreographs. Turn of the Century "tells the story of a modern cabaret duo," according to production notes. "The friction between the two of them is immediate; so is the chemistry. At the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve 1999, the century turns, but in the wrong direction: the duo is catapulted back in time, before the hit songs of the 20th century have been created."

Joining Daniels and York in the cast are Ron Orbach, Rachel de Benedet, Kevin Gudahl, Rebecca Finnegan, Jonah Rawitz, Matthew Gold, Nicholas Belton, Jessica Leigh Brown, McKinley Carter, Sara Edwards, Adam Eses, Rebecca Finnegan, Lauren Haughton, Pat McRoberts, Jeff Parker, James Rank, Tommy Rapley, John Sanders, Aléna Watters, Kristen Beth Williams, Michael Parker Ayers and Molly A. Curry.
