What We're Up Against Extends at WP Theater
Krysta Rodriguez, Marg Helgenberger, and Skylar Astin star in the off-Broadway premiere of Theresa Rebeck's 1992 play.
WP Theater announced that its production of the off-Broadway premiere of Theresa Rebeck's What We're Up Against will extend. Previously scheduled through November 26, it will now run through December 3.
Directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, What We're Up Against features Emmy Award winner and Golden Globe nominee Marg Helgenberger (Erin Brockovich) and Damian Young (House of Cards), Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect), Jim Parrack (True Blood), and Krysta Rodriguez (Spring Awakening).
Written by Rebeck in 1992, What We're Up Against premiered nearly 20 years later at the Magic Theater in San Francisco. The play is described as follows: "'Why is it still like this?' Janice sighs to Eliza. It's 1992, and Eliza is the brainy new recruit at a small-shop architecture firm. But she's struggling to get a foothold on even the lowest rung of the company ladder, and starts making moves to blow the lid off their Pandora's box of office politics and social maneuvering, in this sharply hilarious black comedy."
The design team includes scenic design by Narelle Sissons, costume design by Tilly Grimes, lighting design by Grant Yeager, and sound design by M.L. Dogg.
