Paul Weitz’s new comedy Lonely, I’m Not, starring screen favorites Topher Grace and Olivia Thirlby, opens at off-Broadway's Second Stage on May 7. Trip Cullman directs the piece, which began previews on April 10.
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. He’s decided to give life another shot, and meets an ambitious young businesswoman (Thirlby) who is overcoming her own obstacles to emotional success.
Joining Grace and Thirlby on stage are 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.
