The musical, according to Yee, is a "fictional reimagining of the first time New York Knicks superstar Jeremy Lin proved himself on the basketball court." Song titles include "American Basketball Hero," "Lin-ning It," "It’s Like Applying to Stanford and Ending Up At Harvard," "Math" and "Lin-sanity."
The cast features Yee (Wicked, Mary Poppins, upcoming Linus in You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown at the Stratford Festival) as Jeremy Lin, with Anne Fraser Thomas (The Grinch Who Stole Christmas) as Jeremy’s mother, Chad Seib (White Christmas) and Amber Owens (Mary Poppins) as the head of the Palo Alto Basketball Club, and Val Ho (Groovaloos) as Jeremy’s basketball body double with Mathew deGuzman (Follies), Mahalia Miner-LeGrand, Karen Musey, Katie Nanni (Mary Poppins), Tiffany Ocvirk, Brian Ogilvie (Mary Poppins) and Jesse Swimm (Mary Poppins).
