Welcome to what's inside Zak's head.

Joining Zak is a colorful cast of characters who play younger Zak, his exes, and the parts of his brain that come out during his mental episodes.
In addition to Zak, the cast features Marissa O'Donnell (Broadway's Shrek the Musical), Ty Rood (Nickelodeon's Paw Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure), Jason Simon (The Met's Die Fledermaus, The Merry Widow), and Chelsea Williams (Broadway's In Transit, Mamma Mia!).
