The show was originally announced to open in Toronto, as a part of the Dancap Productions 2012 season. Following the Toronto run, the production would move to Broadway in November 2012. But, in January 2012 the Toronto run was cancelled. That spring, representatives from the production released a statement that the show would "continue without Dancap's involvement." Then in May 2012, it was delayed again from Fall 2012 to Fall 2013 as the production hunted for new producers.
In April 2013, the Broadway production was cancelled and a Tokyo premiere was announced.
