- Cut Song: "Here I come" and "Opportunity" where cut from the Broadway production, although "Opportunity" was put back in the most recent version, released by MTI.
- Dawson Casting: Majorly averted with the Broadway production. The older cast member was Eric Nelsen as Brett, who was 17.
- One of Us: Aaron Simon Gross, who plays Archie.
- Promoted Fanboy: Aaron Simon Gross is a Jason Robert Brown/Musical Theater fanboy. A production held at Jason Robert Brown's old theater camp, French Woods, were this when the man himself supervised it.
- Romance on the Set: Ariana Grande and Graham Phillips used to date. They even recorded a duet.
- Throw It In!: The scene where Evie is piercing Tracy's navel and the latter then cries out in pain was very real, as Evan Rachel Wood was genuinely stuck by a needle by Nikki Reed. This was also the case with Wood's comment of "What the fuck did you do?!"
- What Could Have Been: Michelle Trachtenberg was originally set to star as Tracey in the film, but was committed to Buffy the Vampire Slayer at the time.
