Maberry Theatricalshave announced the September lineup of stars for the New York premiere of White Rabbit Red Rabbit, the internationally-acclaimed play by Nassim Soleimanpour.

The show will be performed by Tony Award and Grammy Award winner Billy Porter (Kinky Boots, Shuffle Along) on September 12; by film, television and stage star Justin Bartha (The Hangover, Lend Me a Tenor) on September 19; and byStana Katic, star of ABC’s “Castle”, on September 26.

WHITE RABBIT RED RABBIT makes its New York Premiere in this limited engagement, playing Monday nights at Westside Theatre (407 W 43rd Street). Performances began on March 7.

No rehearsal. No director. No set. No spoilers. A different performer each night is handed the script for the first time as they step onto the stage. The rotating cast, each performing only one time ever, also features the previously announced: internet sensation, actor, and comedianRandy Rainbow (August 15) in a special benefit performance where all profits will be donated to the LGBT Center in Orlando, FL for the victims of the Pulse Nightclub Shooting; two-time Drama Desk Award winning stage and television star Michael Urie (August 22); and Emmy Award nominee and acclaimed stage actor Darren Criss (August 29).

Forbidden to leave his country, young Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour found a way for his voice to get out when he physically could not. This wildly entertaining and thought-provoking theatrical piece – where no audience can see the same show twice – blends drama, comedy and social experiment, providing audiences with a potent reminder of the transformative power of theatre.

The play had its world premiere in 2011 at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, winning the Arches Brick Award, followed by presentations at Summerworks and Dublin Fringe Festival where it was awarded “Outstanding New Performance” and “Best New Performance” respectively. The play has since been translated into fifteen different languages and performed over 200 times worldwide – from London to Oslo, Athens, Berlin, Melbourne and Singapore – by such stars asMichael Shannon, John Hurt, Stephen Fry, Stephen Rea, Sinead Cusack, David Morse and more.

A portion of the play’s profits go to PEN International, the world’s leading association of writers working to promote literature and defend freedom of expression around the world (www.pen-international.org). White Rabbit Red Rabbit is produced in association with Aurora Nova Productions and Boat Rocker Entertainment.

Lifetime has picked up TV rights to the indie pic “Sister Cities,” starring Jacki Weaver, Stana Katic, Jess Weixler, Michelle Trachtenberg and Troian Bellisario.

The drama tells the story of four estranged sisters who are brought together by their mother’s death. It’s set to bow on the cabler Sept. 17. Amy Smart, Alfred Molina and Tom Everett Scott also star.

The project comes from director-producer Sean Hanish and the same team that produced the Emmy-nominated “Return to Zero,” which aired on Lifetime in 2014.

“Our goal with ‘Sister Cities’ has always been to get the film in front of as many people as possible, and Lifetime has proved to be the preeminent network to reach viewers who love films with strong female characters and performances,” said director-producer Sean Hanish. “After the overwhelming success of ‘Return to Zero’ on Lifetime, we’re thrilled to partner with the `Fempire’ a second time with ‘Sister Cities.’ ”

Colette Freedman wrote the script, which was based on her play. “Sister Cities” hails from Hanish’s Cannonball Productions and was produced by Hanish, Paul Jaconi-Biery and Eleonore Dailly. Kelly Kahl and Molina are executive producers.

Sister Cities, the independent film Stana worked on last year, will have the world premiere on July 29th at Traverse City Film Festival in Michigan. The run time is 87 minutes and tickets go on sale July 10th. Stana plays the oldest sister Carolina, and the film also stars Jess Weixler, Michelle Trachtenberg, Troian Bellisario, Jacki Weaver, Amy Smart, Alfred Molina and Kaia Gerber. Hopefully we’ll get more info on distribution after the film premieres.

In this twisty and finely-observed family drama of Chekhovian simplicity, four estranged and wildly different sisters—each named after the city they were born in—are called home following the death of their mother. Free-spirited force of nature Mary Baxter lived a whirlwind life, and left her daughters adrift in her wake. After they arrive for Mary’s funeral, a raging storm traps them together in the house. Clashes ensue, old flames reappear, vodka is consumed, memories are triggered, and secrets bubble up, forcing them to confront the things they love about each other, and the things they’d just as soon forget. By turns awkward, funny, and moving, much like real-life family reunions, the fiery and forceful women at the film’s center give this American dramedy a winning appeal. Featuring an all-star cast including Jackie Weaver (“Silver Linings Playbook“), Stana Katic (“Castle”), Troian Bellisario (“Pretty Little Liars”), Michelle Trachtenberg, and TC’s own Amy Smart, we are excited to play host to this film’s world premiere. In Person: Director Sean Hanish; Actress Amy Smart.

Another Castle shocker. ABC has canceled veteran crime drama procedural after eight seasons. The May 16 finale will now be a series finale.

The cancelation comes after ABC sibling ABC Studios went through the trouble of maing new deals with star Nathan Fillion as well as co-stars Seamus Dever and Jon Huertas for Season 9. The show dropped a bombshell last month when co-lead Stana Katic was not asked to come back, along with fellow original cast member Tamala Jones.

The move drew big backlash from fans. Still, signs had been pointing to a renewal, possibly for a shortened, 13-episode ninth season at a reduced license fee. There was a red flag last Friday when ABC did not make a pickup by the deadline it had to make a decision on the show.

Castle already had a road map for Season 9, drawn by Alexi Hawley and Terence Paul Winter, who joined as showrunners at the beginning of Season 8 and were expected to come back for Season 9.

Now, the show will remain about Castle and Beckett til the end, with no Castle 2.0 where Castle flies solo.
