The world premiere of Paul Weitz's Trust — starring Zach Braff ("Scrubs"), Bobby Cannavale (Tony nominee for Mauritius), Tony winner Sutton Foster (Thoroughly Modern Millie; Little Women, Young Frankenstein, Shrek the Musical) and Ari Graynor (The Little Dog Laughed) — officially opens at Off-Broadway's Second Stage Theatre Aug. 12 following previews that began July 23.
The production, which had originally been scheduled to run through Sept. 5, recently announced an extension to Sept. 12. Peter DuBois, who staged Second Stage's Becky Shaw, directs.
"Harry is rich," according to production notes. "Harry is married. But when Harry doesn't trust any of it is enough, he looks to find something real in the most unlikely of places." The dark comedy "explores the corrosive effect of power on relationships and the hope we need to make them better."
The production features scenic design by Alexander Dodge, costume design by "Project Runway" runner-up Emilio Sosa, lighting design by David Weiner and sound design by M.L. Dogg.
Paul Weitz is also the author of Show People, Privilege, Mango Tea, Captive, All for One and Roulette. He also wrote and directed the comedy "American Dreamz," starring Hugh Grant, Dennis Quaid and Mandy Moore, as well as "In Good Company," starring Topher Grace and Scarlett Johansen.
