Zach Braff ("Scrubs"), Bobby Cannavale (Tony nominee for Mauritius), Tony winner Sutton Foster (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Shrek the Musical) and Ari Graynor (The Little Dog Laughed) will co-star in the world premiere of Paul Weitz's Trust for Off-Broadway's Second Stage Theatre.

Directed by Peter DuBois, who staged Second Stage's Becky Shaw, the production will begin previews July 23 with an official opening Aug. 12. Performances will continue through Sept. 5.

"Harry is rich," according to production notes. "Harry is married. But when Harry doesn’t trust any of it is enough, he looks to find something real in the most unlikely of places." The dark comedy "explores the corrosive effect of power on relationships and the hope we need to make them better."

The production will feature scenic design by Alexander Dodge, costume design by "Project Runway" runner-up Emilio Sosa, lighting design by David Weiner and sound design by M.L. Dogg. 

  Paul Weitz is also the author of Show People, Privilege, Mango Tea, Captive, All for One and Roulette. He also wrote and directed the comedy "American Dreamz," starring Hugh Grant, Dennis Quaid and Mandy Moore, as well as "In Good Company," starring Topher Grace and Scarlett Johansen.



Second Stage Theatre is located at 305 West 43rd Street. For more information, visit www.2ST.com.
