Preview performances for Second Stage’s production of Lonely, I’m Not begin today, April 10. The production is scheduled to open on Monday, May 7. This is a limited engagement to May 27.

Topher Grace and Olivia Thirlby co-star in the premiere production of the Paul Weitz comedy, directed by Trip Cullman. Both Grace and Thirlby have previously worked with writer/director Paul Weitz. Topher Grace starred in Weitz’s acclaimed 2004 romantic comedy, In Good Company, opposite Dennis Quaid and Scarlett Johansson; and Olivia Thirlby can be seen opposite Robert DeNiro and Paul Dano in Weitz’s upcoming film, Being Flynn, which opened March 2.

According to press notes, Lonely, I’m Not chronicles Porter who “at an age when most people are discovering what they want to do with their lives, [he] has been married and divorced, earned seven figures as a corporate “ninja,” and had a nervous breakdown. It’s been four years since he’s had a job or a date, and he’s decided to give life another shot. Lonely, I’m Not is a comic journey that follows Porter as he meets an ambitious young businesswoman who is overcoming her own obstacles to emotional success.”

Lonely, I’m Not features scenic design by Mark Wendland; costume design by Emily Rebholz; lighting design by Matt Frey; sound design by Bart Fasbender; and projection design by Aaron Rhyne.

Performances are at Second Stage’s Tony Kiser Theatre (305 West 43rd street).  The production will officially open on Monday, May 7.  For tickets or more information, please visit
