The play explores an album of never-before-seen World War II-era photographs found on the desk of United States Holocaust Memorial Museum archivist Rebecca Erbelding, and the shocking story of true events behind them intersecting with the Holocaust and the lives of Nazi descendants.

The production features scenic design by Tony Award winner Derek McLane (Purlie Victorious), costume design by Tony Award nominee Dede Ayite (A Soldier’s Play), lighting design by Tony Award nominee David Lander (Torch Song), sound design by Bobby McElver, and projection design by David Bengali (Water for Elephants). Ann James (How to Defend Yourself) serves as intimacy coordinator and sensitivity specialist, with Amy Marie Seidel as dramaturg. Jacob Russell is the production stage manager. Casting is by Stephanie Yankwitt of TBD Casting. Tectonic Theater Project is co-producing Here There Are Blueberries in partnership with Brian and Dayna Lee.

The Tectonic Theater Project and NYTW are also partnering with the Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics (FASPE) as the production's content and conversation partner to curate a series of post-show discussions and engagement events for the play. These discussions will be held May 23, May 29, June 4, and June 12.
