Tony winners David Cromer, Cady Huffman, and Frank Wood are among the latest performers to join the roster of rotating guest stars in Off-Broadway's NASSIM, now playing at New York City Center.

In NASSIM, 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).
