Fans will not only have to gird their loins but pack their patience before seeing it come to life -- the production is slated to debut at Chicago’s CIBC Theatre for a one month run: July 13 to Aug. 15 in 2021.

Producer Kevin McCollum said, "We realized that we wanted more time to work on the show. Our creative team members are in demand around the world with ridiculous schedules. The new dates mean that not only do we get an ideal theater in Chicago, it also allows our New York landlord to confirm the Broadway venue, which means we have more time to coordinate our physical design, marketing, and sales plans accordingly."

Additional cast announcements are still to come.
