The new musical is adapted from Richard Greenberg's 2003 play, with music by Will Reynolds and a book and lyrics by Eric Price.

Joining Pfeiffer on the album are Santino Fontana as John, Erika Henningsen as Rosamund, Jeremy Jordan as Denny, and Brandon Uranowitz as Gidger. Orchestrations are by Charlie Rosen with music supervision by Andy Einhorn.
Set in 1919, the work centers on a young publisher who comes to possess a machine that suddenly starts printing pages from future books, allowing him to figure out what's coming for the world at large over the next century and maybe change it.
Greenberg's play premiered at South Coast Repertory in 2002, coming to Broadway in 2003 via Manhattan Theatre Club.
Reynolds and Price won the 2018 Fred Ebb Award for Musical Theatre Writing, with their musicals including Radioactive, Around the World, and The Sixth Borough. On screen, the duo penned songs for AppleTV+'s Central Park.
