Michael Ogborn (Box Office of the Damned, Café Puttanesca) penned book, music and lyrics to the musical that received its 2001 world premiere at the Arden Theatre Company in Philadelphia. It earned four Barrymore Awards, including Best Musical and Best Score. A recent March workshop tested a revised version of the musical.
Jeremy Dobrish (Rated P for Parenthood), who also helmed the recent New York reading, directs the July 16-22 NYMF run at the Pershing Square Signature Center. Much of the March workshop cast returns for the NYMF staging.

Myers (Messiah Rocks, Jesus Christ Superstar), Patricia Noonan (Pride and Prejudice, Death Takes a Holiday), Kurt Zischke (Signs of Life, Whistle Down the Wind) and Hannah Elless (Godspell).
