Lonely, I’m Not opened on Monday, May 7 to rave reviews.  Ben Brantley of The New York Times called the production, “Wonderful!  It has the sweet suspense and off-kilter charm of an ideal Hollywood romantic comedy.  Topher Grace and Olivia Thirlby seduce us unconditionally.”  Joe Dziemianowicz of The Daily News raves, “Topher Grace and Olivia Thirlby shine in sterling star turns” and Frank Schenck of The New York Post called the show, “Full of comic grace and sharp humor.” 

At an age when most people are discovering what they want to do with their lives, Porter 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.
