Second Stage Theatre has announced complete casting for its upcoming New York premiere production of A Parallelogram, written by Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award, and Olivier Award winner Bruce Norris (Clybourne Park). Performances will begin July 11 at the Tony Kiser Theater in advance of an August 2 opening.

Directed by current Tony nominee Michael Greif (Dear Evan Hansen), the cast features Juan Castano (The Sibling 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."

The creative team includesscenic design by Rachel Hauck, costume design by Jeff Mahshie, lighting design by Kenneth Posner, sound design by Matt Tierney, animal training by William Berloni, and casting by Telsey Co.

A Parallelogram made its world premiere at Steppenwolf Theatre in 2010, followed by a 2013 run at Los Angeles' Mark Taper Forum.
