Darling features book, music and lyrics by Ryan Scott Oliver (35mm: A Musical Exhibition, Jasper in Deadland) and was conceived by Brett Ryback. With a classic sound set in the modern age, it tells the story of "a nameless girl called Darling who is rescued from an asylum for 'troubled youngsters' by the provocative rent-boy Peter. The young man steals her to the Second Slum, a seedy underground of jazz, sex, and a mysterious white powder called Dust."

Darling will be presented as a complete musical presentation in 90 minutes, led by music director Rodney Bush and accompanied by a 7-piece orchestra. Orchestrations are by Oliver, with additional orchestrations by Solomon Hoffman and Ryan Fielding Garrett. Fernanda Douglas serves as music assistant.
