School of Rock Star Alex Brightman and More Join White Rabbit Red Rabbit
Nassim Solemanpour's solo drama announces a new lineup of performers.
White Rabbit Red Rabbit features a rotating 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."
Upcoming stars will include Mozhan Marnó, star of Blacklist and House of Cards (October 17), Joe Pantoliano, Emmy Award-winning star of Sopranos (October 24), Alex Brightman, Tony-nominated star of School of Rock (November 14), and Nancy Travis, from Three Men and a Baby and So I Married an Axe Murderer (November 21). The performers for the October 31 and November 7 performances will be announced shortly.
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."
