The design team will include two more 2015 Tony nominees, set designer David Rockwell (You Can’t Take It With You and On the Twentieth Century) and lighting designer Japhy Weideman (The Visit and Airline Highway) and, doing costumes, Oscar winner Ann Roth. Casting is by Telsey + Company/William Cantler, CSA.
