Note: A diverse cast is imperative in order to represent the multitude and diversity of female characters singing.
The cast can consist of anywhere from 4 to 20 women. If using a smaller cast, the breakdown of who sings which character/song can be at the discretion of the director. In order to be as inclusive as possible and to represent the multitude of characters singing, casting a diverse group of actors is imperative for this show.

that supports the women in their world.” – BroadwayWorld
