Tony winner Brian Stokes Mitchell (Shuffle Along) is the latest performer to be announced to star in Nassim Soleimanpour's play White Rabbit Red Rabbit at the Westside Theatre. The Broadway favorite will take the stage on November 28.

White Rabbit Red Rabbit features a constantly changing cast of stars who 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."

The show 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."
