Frozen's Jelani Alladin, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and actor Tracy Letts—soon to be seen on Broadway in All My Sons—and Anastasia's Vicki Lewis 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).
