Initial casting has been set, and includes Jo Foster (& Juliet, Just For One Day), Leesa Tulley (Six, Kin), and Noah Thomas (Everything Now, Everybody’s Talking About Jamie).

Moss, who also directs, and Marlow said, "This is ultimately a musical about two friends, their desire for love, and how they deal with loneliness. We hope people come away feeling super uplifted. And we hope they text someone the second they leave the theatre saying ‘omigosh just fyi i love you soooo much!!!!’"

The rest of the creative team includes choreographer Ellen Kane, orchestrator and vocal arranger Joe Beighton, musical supervisor Joe Beighton, set designer Moi Tran, costume designer Max Johns, lighting designer Jai Morjaria, and sound designer Paul Gatehouse.
