Tickets are now on sale for outrageous new romantic comedy The Performers. The stimulating new play stars Cheyenne Jackson and Daniel Breaker as old high school buddies who run into each other at the Adult Film Awards in Las Vegas. Jackson plays adult film star Mandrew, nominated for Male Performer of the Year, and Breaker is Lee, a tabloid reporter sent to cover the event.
Ari Graynor and Alicia Silverstone also star as Jackson and Breaker’s respective wives, who get swept up in the frenzy of this salacious weekend in Vegas. When the night takes an unexpected turn, relationships are threatened. Along for the ride, are Henry Winkler as legendary porn star Chuck Wood, who’s receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award, and Jenni Barber as Sundown, a budding adult film actress.
The Performers is written by David West Read and directed by Evan Cabnet. The production will begin previews October 23 at the Longacre Theatre. Opening night is set for November 14.
