This Is Us Star Chrissy Metz to Lead Benefit Reading of Neil LaBute's Fat Pig
LaBute will also direct the production at MCC Theater.
This benefit reading will be led by Chrissy Metz, a recent Golden Globe nominee for her role on NBC's This Is Us. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
The play is described as follows: "Cow. Slob. Pig. How many insults can you hear before you stand up and defend the woman you love? Tom faces just that question when he falls for Helen, a bright, funny, sexy young woman who also happens to be plus-sized."
MCC previously presented the world premiere production of Fat Pig during the 2004-05 season. In celebration of its 30th anniversary season the company looks forward to bringing the play back with a new ending.
