The production will be helmed by 5-time Tony-winning director Susan Stroman, with a score by the Tony- and Grammy-winning duo Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Some Like It Hot, Hairspray, etc.), who wrote over two dozen songs for the television show, many of which will be used in the musical. They will also be writing new material.
