Featured in the cast is Juan Castano (The Siblings Play), Tony nominee Anita Gillette (Chapter Two), three-time Tony nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger (The Glass Menagerie), and Stephen Kunken (Enron).

A Parallelogram is described as follows: "If you knew in advance exactly what was going to happen in your life, and how everything was going to turn out, and if you knew you couldn't do anything to change it, would you still want to go on with your life? That is the question facing Bee who, much to Jay's confusion, can click through different moments in her life with the touch of a remote control. Past, present and future collide in this sharp existential comedy that questions whether we can make peace with those things we don't have the power to change."
