Winesday: The Wine Tasting Musical has announced its cast and creative team ahead of its upcoming Off-Broadway run. Performances begin May 8 at The Jerry Orbach Theater at The Theater Center, with opening night set for May 22. 

The cast features Dawn Cantwell (1776, Wicked), Jennifer Diamond (Let Me Be Me), Debra Thais Evans (Hairspray), Shannen Hofheimer (Anything Goes), Amanda Lea Lavergne (Annie, The People in the Picture), and Michael Valvo (Cirque Musica: Holiday Wonderland). Understudy Suzanne Dressler rounds out the company. Casting is by Jamibeth Margolis.

Winesday features a book and lyrics by Jenne Wason, and music by Joseph Benoit. Jamibeth Margolis directs, with musical direction by Alec Bart. 

The musical follows five wine-loving women who meet weekly for book club or yoga class, in theory. In reality, though, they're drinking and discussing their lives. Each scene in the show is paired with a wine tasting for the audience. 

The creative team includes costume consultant Molly Goldberg, lighting designer Kathryn Eader, sound designer Kimberly S. O'Loughlin, movement coordinator and associate director Merete Muenter, orchestrator Joseph Benoit, production stage manager Julie Gottfried, and assistant stage manager Thea McRae. General management is by LDK productions.

Winesday is executive produced by Lisa Dozier Shacket.
