The Teddy Bergman-helmed musical played an acclaimed run through Ars Nova, Ma-Yi Theater, and the Woodshed Collective in 2017, going on to win the 2018 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical. The staging took place in several different spaces within A.R.T./New York Theaters to guide audiences through the many facets of K-pop music production and stardom.

A producer for the Off-Broadway run revealed in 2018 that the musical would be remounted in a new space this year, though a deal had not been put in place at the time. Tim Forbes and Joey Parnes serve as producers for the commercial run.
