Remy Auberjonois, Jon Bass & More to Lead MTC's THE IMPORTANT HATS OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

Lynne Meadow (Artistic Director) and Barry Grove (Executive Producer) have announced complete casting for Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere of Important Hats of the Twentieth Century, the new comedy by Emmy Award nominee Nick Jones, directed by Tony Award nominee Moritz von Stuelpnagel.

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), and Henry Vick (When The Rain Stops Falling).

Important Hats of the Twentieth Century begins previews Tuesday, November 10, 2015 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).

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.

In order to ensure that tickets to Important Hats of the Twentieth Century are affordable to the widest and most diverse audiences possible, MTC is pricing all tickets during the first five weeks of the run at $30.
