Rounding out the company are understudies Quinn M. Johnson, Devin Kessler, and Kai Tshikosi, with additional understudies to be announced.

The production will also feature scenic design by Matt Saunders, costume design by Qween Jean, lighting design by Cha See, sound design by Fan Zhang, hair and wig design by Nikiya Mathis, special effects design by Lillis Meeh, prop management by Claire M. Kavanah, intimacy direction by Kelsey Rainwater, and fight direction by UnkleDave's Fight House. Nissy Aya is serving as dramaturg, with Rachel Denise April as production stage manager and Eloia Peterson as stage manager.
