Directed and choreographed by Tony winner Hinton Battle, the cast will comprise Gilbert Bailey, Natalie Hill, Simon Pearl, Morgan Reed, Carla Stewart and Ryan Williams.
The production also features dramaturgy by Kenneth Ferrone and musical direction by Jon Balcourt.
What We Do For Love Or Other Desperate Measures is described as a "non-stop electrifying, fast-paced musical about relationships, looked at through nostalgic Top-40 hit songs of the past four decades.
