Photos: First Look at Carson Elrod, Matthew Saldivar and More in MTC's IMPORTANT HATS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

IMPORTANT HATS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, the new comedy by Emmy Award nominee Nick Jones, directed by Tony Award nominee Moritz von Stuelpnagel, is now in previews and opens Monday, November 23, 2015 at The Studio at Stage II - Harold and Mimi Steinberg New Play Series at New York City Center - Stage II (131 West 55th Street). BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

The cast for the limited engagement features Remy Auberjonois (Death of a Salesman), Jon Bass (The Book of Mormon), John Behlmann (Significant Other), Reed Campbell (The Comedy of Errors), Carson Elrod (The Explorers Club), Maria Elena Ramirez (Fish in the Dark), Matthew Saldivar (Honeymoon in Vegas), Triney Sandoval (A Free Man of Color), andHenry Vick (When The Rain Stops Falling).

IMPORTANT HATS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY spins the rip-roaring tale of Sam Greevy (Carson Elrod), the hottest fashion designer in 1930's New York... that is, until rival Paul Roms (Matthew Saldivar) starts releasing strange but popular pieces like "sweatshirts," "tracksuits" and "skater pants." When Greevy's minions break into Roms's shady operation, they make a startling discovery that could explain from where - or should we say from when? - these avant-garde ensembles are coming. Soon, this rivalry turns into a battle for the very future of humankind, and more importantly, fashion!

Emmy-nominated writer Nick Jones ("Orange Is the New Black," Jollyship the Whiz-Bang) and acclaimed director Moritz von Stuelpnagel (Hand to God, Verité) team up, for this whip-smart, epic, and utterly insane new comedy.

The creative team for IMPORTANT HATS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY will feature Timothy R. Mackabee (scenic design), Jennifer Moeller (costume design), Jason Lyons (lighting design), Palmer Hefferan (original music and sound design), Leah J. Loukas (hair and wig design), and Robert Westley (fight director).
