This magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by _Jersey Boys _ authors Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, Drama Desk–winning composer/lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party_), choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys_), and Olivier Award–winning director/designers Phelim McDermott & Julian Crouch (Shockheaded Peter) with creative consultation by four-time Tony Award® winner Jerry Zaks.
