Paper Mill Playhouse presents the East Coast premiere of Paul Slade Smith's The Outsider beginning January 24 prior to an official opening January 28.

Julia Duffy Joseph Marzullo/WENN

Directed by David Esbjornson, the limited engagement will continue through February 18.

The cast features Manoel Felciano (Sweeney Todd) as Dave Riley, Julia Duffy (Newhart, Designing Women) as Paige Caldwell, Burke Moses (Beauty and the Beast) as Arthur Vance, Kelley Curran (Present Laughter) as Rachel Parsons, Erin Noel Grennan (Law & Order: SVU) as Louise Peakes, Mike Houston (Orange is the New Black) as A.C. Petersen, and Lenny Wolpe (Paper Mill’s The Baker’s Wife) as Ned Newley.

In The Outsider, Ned Newley, the ultimate policy wonk, is unexpectedly thrust into the position of governor. A complete unknown, with a paralyzing fear of public speaking, Ned seems destined to fail. But his political consultants see 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.

The production also features set design by Michael Schweikardt, costume design by Elizabeth Hope Clancy, lighting design by Ben Stanton, hair and wig design by Charles G. LaPointe, and sound design by Randy Hansen. The production stage manager is Mark A. Stys. Casting is by Telsey + Company, Adam Caldwell, CSA, William Cantler, CSA and Karyn Casl, CSA.
