Orphan Black Emmy winner and Network star Tatiana Maslany and Torch Song's Michael Urie 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. Other newly added names include Tony winner Reed Birney, Tony-nominated SpongeBob star Ethan Slater, Fun Home's Beth Malone, and two-time Golden Globe Award winner Marsha Mason.
