Paper Mill Playhouse is excited to announce the East Coast premiere of the new play “The Outsider” by Paul Slade Smith at Paper Mill Playhouse (22 Brookside Drive) in Millburn, NJ.

In politics, the less you know, the higher you’ll go! At once a razor-sharp satire and an inspirational tribute to democracy, The Outsider is a timely and hilarious send-up of modern American politics. In the midst of a political scandal, Ned Newley, the ultimate policy wonk, is unexpectedly thrust into the position of Governor. A complete unknown, with no political instincts and a paralyzing fear of public speaking, Ned seems destined to fail. But his political consultants see things a little differently: Ned might be the worst candidate to ever run for office. Unless the public is looking for… the worst candidate to ever run for office!

Directed by David Esbjornson (Driving Miss Daisy), the seven-member features Kelley Curran (Present Laughter) as Rachel Parsons, Julia Duffy (“Newhart”/”Designing Women”) as Paige Caldwell, Manoel Felciano (Sweeney Todd) as Dave Riley, Erin Noel Grennan (“Law & Order: SVU”) as Louise Peakes, Mike Houston (“Orange is the New Black”) as A.C. Petersen, Burke Moses (Beauty and the Beast) as Arthur Vance, and Lenny Wolpe (PMP’s The Baker’s Wife) as Ned Newley.

Performances begin Wednesday, January 24, 2018, at 7:30 p.m., for a limited run through Sunday, February 18, 2018 at Paper Mill Playhouse (22 Brookside Drive) in Millburn, NJ.  Opening Night is Sunday evening, January 28, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. Get your tickets at https://papermill.org .
