Deets: The Public Theater (Artistic Director, Oskar Eustis; Executive Director, Patrick Willingham) announced today that John Krasinski has been cast in the role of “Seth” in the world premiere play DRY POWDER by Sarah Burgess. Directed by Thomas Kail, this gripping, razor-sharp new play about the people molding and messing
DRY POWDER is the viciously, deliciously funny new drama about the people shaping, and skewing, the American economy.
The same week his private equity firm forced massive layoffs at a national grocery chain, Rick threw himself an extravagant engagement party, setting off a publicity nightmare. Fortunately, Seth (John Krasinski), one of Rick’s partners, has a win-win deal to invest in an American-made luggage company for a song and rescue his boss from a PR disaster. But Jenny, Seth’s counterpart, has an entirely different plan: to squeeze every last penny out of the company, no matter the consequences. The game is on in Sarah Burgess’ gripping, razor-sharp new play about the price of success and the real cost of getting the deal done. Thomas Kail (Hamilton, In the Heights, Lombardi) directs.
Join The Public Theatre on April 7th for a benefit performance of Dry Powder, followed by an exclusive dinner with the cast and creative team!
