Tony Award nominee and Obie Award winner Carrie Coon will be March 20's guest performer in the critically acclaimed American premiere of NASSIM at New York City Center. In the fourth-wall-defying new play, playwright Nassim Soleimanpour invites a new actor to the stage each night to discover the script for the first time by lifting it from a sealed envelope (similar to the Iranian writer's previous work, White Rabbit Red Rabbit).
Also newly added to the roster of rotating guest stars who will perform NASSIM Off-Broadway are Scandal star Guillermo Diaz, Tony nominee Marin Ireland, and Obie winner Aasif Mandvi.
