The creative team includes Harry Feiner (set and lighting designer), Beth Goldenberg (costume designer), Leah Loukas (wig and hair designer), Carrie Mossman (prop designer), Amy Stoller (dialect designer and dramaturg), Ron Piretti (fight director), Stephanie Klapper (casting director), Gary Levinson (production manager), Marci Skolnik (production stage manager), and Lisa Dozier King (general manager).
