News PHOTO CALL: White People, with Brooksher, Dossett and Shulman, Opens Off-Broadway
The New York City premiere of J.T. Rogers' White People opened Feb. 3 at Atlantic Stage 2.

Gus Reyes directs a cast that includes Rebecca Brooksher, Tony Award nominee John Dossett and Michael Shulman.

Production notes ask, "What does it mean to be a white American? What does it mean for any American to live in a country that is not the one you were promised? A brutally honest and surprisingly funny examination of race and language in our culture, White People follows the lives of three ordinary Americans placed under the spotlight: Martin, a Brooklyn-born high powered attorney for a white-shoe law firm in St. Louis; Mara Lynn, a housewife and former homecoming queen in Fayetteville, North Carolina; and Alan, a young professor struggling to find his way in New York. Through heart-wrenching confessions, they wrestle with guilt, prejudice, and the price they and their children must pay for their actions."

Here is a look at the opening-night curtain call and after-show reception:


White People plays Monday, Tuesday, Thursday–Saturday at 8 PM, and Saturday and Sunday at 3 PM.

Tickets are $45 and may be purchased through Ticket Central by visiting or by phoning (212) 279-4200. For more information visit
