Helmed by Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark director and creative consultant Philip Wm. McKinley, the cast will include Jack Noseworthy (Jerome Robbins' Broadway, Sweet Smell of Success) as Joel, Saycon Sengbloh (Fela!, Hair) as Gaynor, Jill Shackner (Les Miserables) as Suze and Donna Vivino (Wicked) as Dee.
Last Dance, according to producers, "is a tale from the '70s when enough was never enough. A joyful celebration of disco dreams, glitter balls and dangerous delights. It's a story about a time, not so long ago, when a man wrote songs for the woman he thought he'd never lose… 'Disco Forever!'"
Other members of the creative team include choreographer Carol Schuberg (Meet Me in St. Louis) and musical director Wendy Cavett (Mamma Mia!).
