Josh Radnor, F. Murray Abraham sign on to ‘White Rabbit’

NEW YORK (AP) — Josh Radnor of “How I Met Your Mother” and F. Murray Abraham of “Homeland” are the latest actors to volunteer putting themselves in an unfamiliar place onstage with “White Rabbit Red Rabbit.”

The play requires no set or director and the actors don’t read the script until they are onstage for the first time. Then they are asked never to perform it again.

The play, by Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour, has been performed every Monday in New York at the Westside Theatre. Soleimanpour wrote the play after being barred from leaving his native country because of his status as a conscientious objector.

Some previous celebs include Whoopi Goldberg, Nathan Lane and Brian Dennehy. Abraham is set for July 18 and Radnor gets his chance July 25.
