New tuner, which was seen in a developmental lab production at the Vineyard in June, marks a reunion of “[title of show]” cast members Hunter Bell, Jeff Bowen, Susan Blackwell and Heidi Blickenstaff, along with music director Larry Pressgrove and helmer Michael Berresse.

Whereas “[title of show]” was written solely by Bell and Bowen, the new musical is created by the entire team and has a book by Bell and Blackwell with music and lyrics by Bowen. Berresse helms and choreographs with Pressgrove, who appeared in “[title of show]” as the sole musician and here leads a four-piece band.
