Kip Fagan (Reborning, That Pretty Pretty…) stages the comedy that will officially open Oct. 27 for a run through Nov. 27.
The cast is led by playwright Eisenberg ("The Squid and the Whale," "The Village") and Justin Bartha (All New People, Lend Me A Tenor, "The Hangover"), who play Edgar and Vinny, respectively.
They are joined by Remy Auberjonois (The Country Girl, Frost/Nixon) as Stuart and Camille Mana ("Smart People," "One on One") in her Off-Broadway debut in the title role.
Here's how Rattlestick describes the play: "Edgar and Vinny are not racist. In fact, Edgar maintains a blog condemning American imperialism and Vinny is three-quarters into a PhD in Black Studies. When a young Filipina woman named Asuncion becomes their new roommate, the pair have a perfect opportunity to demonstrate how open minded they truly are."
