Rounding out the cast are Andrea Bianchi (Curvy Widow), Mark Lotito (Jersey Boys), and Jonathan Spivey (Summer and Smoke).

The design team for Smart Blonde includes Tony Ferrieri (scenic design), Alan Edwards (lighting design), Michael McDonald (costume design), and Joanna Lynne Staub (sound design). The production stage manager is Stephanie Clark.

The limited engagement of Smart Blonde began March 16 and runs through April 13.
