‘White Rabbit Red Rabbit’ Performance Dates Listed for ‘Kinky Boots’ Wayne Brady and More

By James Knight J.knight@classicalite.com on Mar 17, 2016 08:36 AM EDT

Wayne Brady is used to performing without a script. The Kinky Boots star came to fame on the hit improv series Whose Line is it Anyway. So White Rabbit Red Rabbit shouldn’t be too far out of Brady’s league. Brady is one the many talented and brave actors tackling the Off-Broadway production of Nassim Soleimanpour’s directorless play. Nathan Lane and Whoopi Goldberg have already performed the play. The schedule for Brady and many of the remaining performers has recently been listed.

White Rabbit Red Rabbit is a play with no director and no sets. In fact the actors don’t even get to see the script until they look at it on stage.

Wayne Brady takes the White Rabbit Red Rabbit challenge on April 4.

Additional performers and dates include:

Patrick Wilson on March 21.
Brian Dennehy on March 28.
Mike Birbiglia on April 11.
Cynthia Nixon on April 18.
Alan Cumming on April 25
Martin Short on May 2.

Andrea Martin, Marin Mazzie, David Hyde Pierce and George Takei are also expected to preform the play.

White Rabbit Red Rabbit is presented by Maberry Theatricals in partnership with PEN International, an organization that promotes literacy and free expression.

Producer’s Devlin Elliott and Tom Kirdahy Both released a joint press statement about their partnership with PEN International (via Playbill):

"We are thrilled to be working with such an extraordinary group of performers, and to be partnering with PEN International, on such an intriguing and provocative work. Each night will bring its share of surprises. We can't wait to be surprised ourselves. Remember, no cheating! Don't google this play!"

Nassim Soleimanpour’s White Rabbit Red Rabbit is performed at The Westside Theatre, located at 407 W. 43rd St., Manhattan. Tickets are availible at Telecharge.com or calling (212) 239-6200.
