Tony winner Brian Stokes Mitchell is the latest actor to step into White Rabbit Red Rabbit at the Westside Theatre. The acclaimed solo play by Nassim Soleimanpour has attracted a stellar rotating cast of guest performers since it began Off-Broadway in the spring, including Wayne Brady, Darren Criss, Nathan Lane, Whoopi Goldberg, and many more.
Weekly, a different actor is handed a script to perform without the help of a director, rehearsals or a set. Mitchell—who will be a performer on Playbill's Broadway on the High Seas cruise this coming February—performs the play November 28.
Also slated for the fall are Micah Stock (December 5); and Psyche actor James Roday (December 12).
Forbidden to leave his country, Iranian playwright Soleimanpour transcribed his experience of isolation into this unique stage work. The play premiered at the 2011 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it won a series of awards, and has since been translated into 15 different languages and performed globally. “This wildly entertaining and thought-provoking theatrical piece – where no audience can see the same show twice - blends drama, comedy and social experiment,“ describe earlier production notes. The show made its Off-Broadway debut March 7.
