The first guest actors for Barrow Street Theatricals' American premiere of Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour's Nassim, directed by Omar Elerian, and beginning performances at New York City Center — Stage II on Thursday, December 6, ahead of an opening night on Wednesday, December 12.

Scott Adsit, Kate Arrington, Jessie Austrian, Reed Birney, Ewen Bremner, Michael Chernus, Linda Emond, Peter Grosz, Andy Grotelueschen, Geraldine Hughes, Cush Jumbo, Tracy Letts, Jennifer Lim, Ken Marks, Tedra Millan, Martin Moran, Sally Murphy, Brad Oscar, Annie Parisse, Armando Riesco, Michael Shannon, and Michael Urie will be the rotating cast of guest actors during the first month of performances.

Nassim is described as follows: "No rehearsals. A different guest actor at every performance. A sealed envelope. And some surprises. In his latest work, Nassim explores the power of language to unite us in these uncertain times."

Nassim Soleimanpour's first play, White Rabbit Red Rabbit, ran for more than nine months in New York, and was performed by Whoopi Goldberg, Bobby Cannavale, Nathan Lane, F. Murray Abraham, and many others.
