Photo Coverage: Meet the Company of 'PICKED' at the Vineyard Theatre!

Mark Blum, Michael Stahl-David, Donna Hanover, Tom Lipinski and Liz Stauber comprise the cast of Christopher Shinn's play PICKED -- being given its world-premiere production by the Vineyard Theatre (108 E. 15 St.), with previews starting April 6 prior to its official opening night on April 20. Michael Wilson directs. BroadwayWorld was on hand for the meet and greet and brings you photo coverage below!

PICKED concerns a young actor, played by Michael Stahl-David (star of the hit film CLOVERFIELD), who prepares for his life to change when a legendary director casts him as the lead in a big-budget Hollywood movie. But he is not prepared for what comes next, and everything he knows about himself will be called into question as he discovers what it means to be "picked."

PICKED marks the return of Christopher Shinn to the Vineyard Theatre, which presented the U.S. premiere of his Obie Award-winning play WHERE DO WE LIVE in 2004.

include "The Good Wife" and "The West Wing."
