Paper Mill Playhouse will present an invite-only, industry reading of Paul Slade Smith’s The Outsider in March in New York City.
Smith, who is currently performing on Broadway in Finding Neverland, is the playwright of Unnecessary Farce, which has been produced internationally. His newest work is a timely and comedic look at American politics; here's how it's billed: "Ned Newley (Wolpe) doesn't even want to be Governor. He is terrified of public speaking; his poll numbers are impressively bad. To his ever-supportive Chief of Staff (McClure), Ned seems destined to fail. But a political guru named Arthur Vance (Grammer) sees things a little differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for... the worst candidate to ever run for office."
