This Is Our Youth Star Will Sit Down with "Late Show" Host David Letterman

Michael Cera, who co-stars in Kenneth Lonergan's 1996 drama This Is Our Youth — now in previews at Broadway's Cort Theatre — will be a guest on the Aug. 25 broadcast of "The Late Show with David Letterman."

The talk show airs in the New York metropolitan area on CBS beginning at 11:35 PM ET; check local listings.

The evening will also feature dock diving dogs and musical guest Lyle Lovett.

Tony Award winner Anna D. Shapiro (August: Osage County, Of Mice and Men) stages the three-actor This Is Our Youth, which played Steppenwolf Theatre Company prior to its Broadway arrival.

Scott Rudin (Betrayal, A Raisin in the Sun, Death of a Salesman) is producing; opening on Broadway is Sept. 11.

Here's how the play is billed: "Set in New York in 1982, This Is Our Youth follows forty-eight hours in the lives of three very lost young souls: Warren (to be played by Michael Cera), a dejected nineteen year old who has just stolen $15,000 from his abusive, tycoon father; Dennis (Kieran Culkin), his charismatic drug-dealing friend who helps Warren put the stolen money to good use; and Jessica (Tavi Gevinson), the anxiously insightful young woman who Warren yearns for. Funny, painful and compassionate, This Is Our Youth is a living snapshot of the moment when many young people go out into the world on their own, armed only with the ideas and techniques they developed as teenagers – far more sophisticated than their parents realize, and far less effectual than they themselves can possibly imagine."
