Check Out New Photos of The Outsider at Paper Mill Playhouse
The production marks the play's East Coast premiere.
Paper Mill Playhouse has released new photos of its East Coast premiere of The Outsider. Directed by David Esbjornson, the comedy from playwright Paul Slade Smith opens January 28 for a limited engagement through February 18.
The play is described as follows: "In politics, the less you know, the higher you'll go! At once a razor-sharp satire and an inspirational tribute to democracy, The Outsider is a timely and hilarious send-up of modern American politics. In the midst of a political scandal, Ned Newley, the ultimate policy wonk, is unexpectedly thrust into the position of Governor. A complete unknown, with no political instincts and a paralyzing fear of public speaking, Ned seems destined to fail. But his political consultants see things a little differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for... the worst candidate to ever run for office!"
Featured in the cast are Kelley Curran as Rachel Parsons, Julia Duffy as Paige Caldwell, Manoel Felciano as Dave Riley, Erin Noel Grennan as Louise Peakes, Mike Houston as A.C. Petersen, Burke Moses as Arthur Vance, and Lenny Wolpe as Ned Newley.
The creative team includes Michael Schweikardt (set design), Elizabeth Hope Clancy (costume design), Ben Stanton (lighting design), Charles G. LaPointe (hair and wig design), and Randy Hansen (sound design). The production stage manager is Mark A. Stys.
