Here they are! The complete cast has been named for Here We Are, the new Off-Broadway musical by composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim and book writer David Ives. Performances begin September 28 at The Shed, where the show will play for 15 weeks only.

The complete Here We Are cast includes Francois Battiste, Tracie Bennett, Bobby Cannavale, Micaela Diamond, Amber Gray, Jin Ha, Rachel Bay Jones, Denis O’Hare, Steven Pasquale, David Hyde Pierce, and Jeremy Shamos. Bradley Dean, Adam Harrington, Bligh Voth, Adante Carter, Mehry Eslaminia, and Lindsay Nicole Chambers are understudies.

The creative team, led by previously announced director Joe Mantello, has also been named. Here We Are features choreography by Sam Pinkleton, set and costume design by David Zinn, lighting design by Natasha Katz, sound design by Tom Gibbons, hair design by Wigmaker Associates, orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick, and musical direction and supervision by Alexander Gemignani.

Here We Are is inspired by two films by Luis Buñuel: The Discreet Charm of the Bourgeoisie and The Exterminating Angel. Both films take place at dinner parties where unexpected events occur — the guests weather constant interruptions and even find themselves trapped at their own gathering.

Opening night for Here We Are is October 22.
