To make such a classic story fresh for the stage, Kerrigan previously said she wanted to take a closer look at the female characters.

The Broadway premiere also features choreography by Dominique Kelley, scenic and projection design by Paul Tate de Poo III, costume design by Tony winner Linda Cho, lighting design by Cory Pattak, sound design by Tony winner Brian Ronan, hair and wig design by Drama Desk winner Charles G. LaPointe and Rachael Geier, arrangements by Jason Howland, orchestrations by Howland and Kim Scharnberg, and musical direction by Daniel Edmonds.
