Shooting began on June 17, 2013 in New York City. Unlike the show, in which the solos are sung in isolation and the viewer must imagine the presence of any other characters in the scene, the scenes in the film directly depict interaction between the two leads and occasionally other people (though still only one character sings in most scenes, as in the play). Betsy Wolfe, who played Cathy in the 2013 Off-Broadway revival, will play the former stripper that Cathy rooms with in Ohio. Brown himself will play one of the accompanists during Cathy's auditions in "Climbing Uphill". Sherie Rene Scott, who originated the role of Cathy in the Off-Broadway production, will also appear in one of the audition scenes with her husband Kurt Deutsch. The film wrapped on July 16, 2013 in Harlem. It inked foreign distribution deals with countries in Eastern Europe and Asia in August 2014.
