Tony Award Nominee and Grammy Award Winner Phillipa Soo will perform in the critically acclaimed American premiere of NASSIM at New York City Center. In the fourth-wall-defying new play, playwright Nassim Soleimanpour invites a new actor to the stage each night to discover the script for the first time by lifting it from a sealed envelope (similar to the Iranian writer's previous work, White Rabbit Red Rabbit).
In addition to the Hamilton alum, newly added to the roster of rotating guest stars who will perform NASSIM Off-Broadway are Drama Desk Nominee Patrick Page (Hadestown, Spring Awakening); Drama League Nominee Thaddeus Phillips (Narcos, 17 Border Crossings); and The Daily Show's X Mayo.
