Further casting will be announced.

Set in 1929 New York City, The American Clock centers on the Baum family as they navigate the aftermath of an unprecedented financial crisis. Chavkin's production will feature a soundtrack fusing 1920s swing and jazz with movement.

The American Clock will feature scenic design by Chloe Lamford, costume design by Rosie Elnile, lighting design by Natasha Chivers and sound design by Darron L. West. The creative team will also include musical director Jim Henson, composer Justin Ellington and choreographer Ann Yee.

Chavkin is making quite the splash on the London theater scene, with her Broadway-bound staging of Hadestown currently in performances in the West End.
