Highlights From Lonely, I'm Not Starring Topher Grace
Oscar nominated director Paul Weitz ("American Pie," "About a Boy") continues his playwriting career (Trust, Roulette) with his latest Off-Broadway offering Lonely, I'm Not. Presented by the Second Stage Theatre, the world-premiere romantic comedy stars Topher Grace ("That '70s Show") as Porter, a divorced former "corporate ninja" thrown out of the business world after a very public nervous breakdown. Olivia Thirlby ("Juno," HBO's "Bored to Death") co-stars as a corporate go-getter who catches Porter’s eye and inspires him to reinvestigate his life. For an interview with Grace, click here.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
