Jeff Whiting, the resident director of Bullets Over Broadway, Big Fish and The Scottsboro Boys, helms the musical that is characterized as "a 1930s swing-time musical reminiscent of Warner Brothers gangster movies, Hitchcock thrillers, and 'Casablanca' style romance."

Crumb (Aspects of Love, Anna Karenina) and Yazbeck (Gypsy, Little Me, On the Town) lead a cast that also includes Barbara Jo Bednarczuk, Preston Truman Boyd, Jared Bradshaw, Kevin Cahoon, Lauren Cohn, Henry Gainza, Kinsland Howell, Lauren Kadel, Katy Karr, Anthony Lee Medina, Jeff Pew, Shawn Platzker, Sarah Reardon, Sarah Roussos, Lara Seibert, Tom Souhrada, Jeffrey Scott Stevens, Mariand Torres and Stuart Zagnit.

Introcaso's works include Crossroads Café. Colby is the lyricist/librettist of Tales of Tinseltown, They Chose Me! and Charlotte Sweet.

The Dangerous reading is presented by Ray Kennedy. Jesse Kissel (The Scottsboro Boys, Leap of Faith, Spider-Man) is musical director. The production stage manager is Jason Brouillard.

Director-choreographer Whiting is also the creator of the StageWrite app, which documents the stage blocking and choreography of shows and has been employed by Newsies, Mamma Mia!, The Book of Mormon and Big Fish. Read the Playbill.com feature on StageWrite here.
