Theatre Ventures, Neal Street Productions and Kevin McCormick; and directed by Academy Award® winner Sam Mendes; music by Marc Shaiman; lyrics by Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman (Grammy® winners for Hairspray; Smash); a book by award-winning playwright and adaptor David Greig (The Bacchae; Tintin In Tibet); set and costume designs by Mark Thompson (Mamma Mia!; One Man, Two Guvnors) and choreography by Peter Darling (Billy Elliot; Matilda).
