The next lineup of stars for the New York premiere of Nassim Soleimanpour's White Rabbit Red Rabbit has been announced. The show is currently playing Monday nights at Westside Theatre.

Olivier Award and Tony Award nominee Ramin Karimloo (Les Miserables) will perform on August 1, two-time Drama Desk Award-winning stage and television star Michael Urie (Buyer and Cellar) will perform on August 22, and Emmy Award nominee and acclaimed stage actor Darren Criss (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) will take the stage on August 29. The performers for August 8 and August 15 will be announced shortly.

Upcoming performers will also include Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Obie Award-winning actor F. Murray Abraham (July 18) and television and stage star Josh Radnor (July 25).

The production features a rotating cast of stars who will see the script for the first time immediately before stepping onstage for their performances: "No rehearsal. No director. No set. No spoilers," says the production. "A different performer each night is handed the script for the first time as they step onto the stage."

White Rabbit Red Rabbit is described as follows: "Forbidden to leave his country, young Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour found a way for his voice to get out when he physically could not — distilling the experience of his isolation in an audacious and utterly nontraditional new play. This wildly entertaining and thought-provoking theatrical piece — where no audience can see the same show twice — blends drama, comedy and social experiment, providing audiences with a potent reminder of the transformative power of theater."
