Highlights From Asuncion Starring Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Bartha
A 2011 Oscar nominee for his turn as Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg in "The Social Network," Jesse Eisenberg tries his hand at playwriting with the comedy Asuncion. Eisenberg also stars as Edgar, an aspiring writer who currently lives on the apartment floor of his former TA, Vinny (Justin Bartha). When his new sister-in-law, a beautiful Filipina woman named Asuncion (Camille Mana), becomes the third roommate, Edgar and Vinny go out of their way to show her how open minded they are — to disastrous results. Directed by Kip Fagan, the show runs through Nov. 27 at the Cherry Lane Theatre. Click here to read more about the play.
