Producer Aaron Grant has announced casting for Erik Shapiro's You’re Really Not Helping, the second of three plays he is presenting this summer as part of a new developmental reading series.

Directed by Jeremy Scott Blaustein, the July 29 reading will feature Stacie Bono, Max Crumm, Ashton Foster, Aaron Simon Gross, Ari Benjamin Hirsch, Guy Lemonnier, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Catherine Russel, Stewart Schneck and Kevin Spirtas. Show time is 2 PM.

In You’re Really Not Helping, a comedy inspired by true events, "powerhouse real estate executive Rod Landy (played by Spirtas) refuses to take life sitting down, which is tough since an encounter with a tree on a ski vacation has left this type-A control freak paralyzed from the waist down," according to press notes.

Of this in-your-face comedy, Grant said in a statement, "This is a comedy that’s clearly written from the heart. There’s something very important about its message, and it’s something I don’t ever recall seeing on stage before."

This reading (and all readings in the series) are open to the public. RSVP by e-mailing Due to limited capacity, there will be no admittance without written confirmation.


The third play in the series, Alex Rubin‘s dark romance First Love, directed by Andy Sandberg, will be seen Aug. 19.
