Tony winner Clark (The Light in the Piazza) stars as Kimberly, a bright New Jersey teenager with an aging disease that makes her look like a 72-year-old lady. She leads a cast that also includes Cooley in his Broadway debut, Tony nominee Steven Boyer (Hand to God), Alli Mauzey (Cry Baby, Wicked), Milligan (Head Over Heels), and Fernell Hogan (The Prom), plus Olivia Elease Hardy, Michael Iskander, and Nina White, all making their Broadway debuts.
The musical had its world premiere Off-Broadway at Atlantic Theater Company in 2021. The complete cast from that run has continued on for the Broadway bow.
Ghostlight Records will release the cast album.
Stone's creative team also includes music director Chris Fenwick, orchestrator John Clancy (with additional orchestrations by Macy Schmidt), scenic designer David Zinn, costume designer Sarah Laux, lighting designer Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew, sound designer Kai Harada, projection designer Lucy MacKinnon, and wig, hair, and make-up designer J. Jared Janas. Arabella Powell is the production stage manager, and the production is cast by The Telsey Office's Craig Burns.
