As previously announced, Barrow Street Theatricals, formerly Barrow Street Theatre, moves uptown to New York City Center, Stage II (131 West 55th Street) just for this production, which celebrated its official opening night on Wednesday, December 12, 2018.

No rehearsals. A different guest actor at every performance. A sealed envelope. And some surprises. In his latest work, Nassim explores the power of language to unite us in these uncertain times.

NASSIM was originally commissioned and produced by the Bush Theatre and received its world premiere at the Bush Theatre, London, July 25, 2017.

Nassim Soleimanpour's first play, White Rabbit Red Rabbit, ran for more than nine months in New York, and was performed by Whoopi Goldberg, Bobby Cannavale, Nathan Lane, F. Murray Abraham, and other celebrated actors. It has been performed thousands of times in the United States and has been translated into more than 25 languages. NASSIM is his latest exploration into imaginative storytelling that also challenges traditional theatrical forms.

Tickets can be purchased by visiting; on the phone by calling CityTix at 212-581-1212; or in person at New York City Center box office, open Monday-Saturday, noon-8pm, and Sunday, noon-7:30pm.

NASSIM is produced off-Broadway by Scott Morfee, Jean Doumanian, and Tom Wirtshafter.

Barrow Street Theatricals was founded by Scott Morfee and Tom Wirtshafter in 2003 at its home in New York's historic Greenwich House, where they operated the 200-seat Barrow Street Theatre until September 2018. They have produced and presented numerous award-winning shows, including the Tooting Arts Club production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street; Every Brilliant Thing by Duncan MacMillan with Jonny Donahoe (with Paines Plough); Tracy Letts' BUG; Thornton Wilder's Our Town, Tribes by Nina Raine (both directed by David Cromer); Josh Schmidt's Adding Machine: a musical, and many more.
