WP Theater and Segal NYC Productions celebrated the Off-Broadway opening of What We’re Up Against November 8. The production, directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt, marks the first time Theresa Rebeck's 1992 play has been seen in New York City.

Performances began October 28 at the WP Theater (2162 Broadway), where it is scheduled to play a limited, four-week engagement.

What We’re Up Against is set in a small architecture firm, where new recruit Eliza, played by Krysta Rodriguez (Spring Awakening, Quantico), is struggling to get a foothold; it is billed as a “darkly funny and all-too-relevant comedy of gender politics.”

The cast also includes Skylar Astin (Pitch Perfect, Spring Awakening), Jim Parrack (True Blood, Of Mice and Men), Emmy Award winner and Golden Globe nominee Marg Helgenberger (CSI, Erin Brockovich, Arena Stage's The Little Foxes), and Damian Young (House of Cards, All My Sons, The Comeback).
