‘White Rabbit Red Rabbit’ Coming To NYC: No Director Show Feat Nathan Lane & Alan Cumming

By James Knight J.knight@classicalite.com on Feb 04, 2016 12:49 AM EST

If you have ever been involved with theater before, odds are there have been moments where just want to get rid of the director. And who can really be bothered with all those pesky rehearsals. And sets can be great but at the end of the day, who really needs them? White Rabbit Red Rabbit gets rid off that hassle that normally comes with a production. The avant garde play by Nassim Soleimanpour just throws actors up on stage with a script and let's them at it. The experimental show is now heading to NYC for a run of Monday only shows. Working without a set, rehearsals or a director on the one night a week that most performers are free means we will get to see some pretty names including Nathan Lane, David Hyde Pierce, Whoopi Goldberg, Alan Cumming and more.
