Ann Harada, Jonathan Sale, and More to Star in DROPPING GUMBALLS ON LUKE WILSON
WORKING THEATER announces the cast for its upcoming world premiere of the comedy, DROPPING GUMBALLS ON Luke Wilson, by Rob Ackerman and directed by Theresa Rebeck making her New York directorial debut.

Tickets are $25- $40 and can be purchased by visiting TheWorkingTheater.org or calling the Box Office (Ovationtix) at 866.811.4111.
DROPPING GUMBALLS ON Luke Wilson is inspired by a true, little-known story about the making of an iconic TV commercial in which a legendary film director puts a movie star's life in the hands of a very jittery props guy. A humorous and ultimately disturbing account of power in the workplace, GUMBALLS examines how truth is negotiated in both art and life.
