The Washington Post has the story, and it's well worth your time to read.
This improbable lineup of ambitious 20-somethings would all end up onstage at the June 1 opening night, before they became famous through Second City, “Saturday Night Live,” “SCTV,” movies, Broadway and more.

They formed relationships that have lasted 50 years — all while in a musical that is literally about exuberant comedic strangers learning to connect with one another.
The WaPo story has programs, photos, and a killer account from the actors and musicians alike.
