Tony winner Alan Cumming has joined the rotating ensemble of White Rabbit Red Rabbit, the internationally acclaimed play by Nassim Soleimanpour. Cumming will perform the solo show on April 25 at the Westside Theatre.

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."

The play had its world premiere in 2011 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, winning the Arches Brick Award, followed by presentations at Summerworks and Dublin Fringe Festival where it was awarded Outstanding New Performance and Best New Performance, respectively.

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. A different performer each night is handed the script for the first time as they step onto the stage." Upcoming artists include Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony winner Whoopi Goldberg (March 14); Golden Globe, Emmy, and Tony nominee Patrick Wilson (March 21); Golden Globe, Emmy, and Tony winner Brian Dennehy (March 28); and comedian, actor, and director Mike Birbiglia (April 11).
