Lonely, I’m Not gets company on April 10, when the world premiere Paul Weitz play begins previews at off-Broadway's Second Stage Theatre. Screen favorites Topher Grace and Olivia Thirlby star in the comedy, directed by Trip Cullman. Lonely, I’m Not will officially open on May 7.
At an age when most people are discovering what they want to do with their lives, Porter (Grace) has been married and divorced, earned seven figures as a corporate “ninja,” and had a nervous breakdown. It’s been four years since he’s had a job or a date, and he’s decided to give life another shot. Lonely, I’m Not is a comic journey that follows Porter as he meets an ambitious young businesswoman (Thirlby) who is overcoming her own obstacles to emotional success.
Joining Grace and Thirlby on stage will be Christopher Jackson, Mark Blum, Lisa Emery and Maureen Sebastian. Lonely, I’m Not features scenic design by Mark Wendland, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Matt Frey, sound design by Bart Fasbender and projection design by Aaron Rhyne.
