The upcoming production will also have designs by Soutra Gilmour, lighting design by Jack Knowles, sound design by Tony Gayle, musical direction by Sean Green, orchestrations by Lux Pyramid, casting by Julia Horan, voice and dialect coaching by Daniele Lydon, associate direction by Claira Vaughan, and assistant direction by Jessica Mensah.
