SAN JOSE, Calif. (April 11, 2012) -- One of the most intriguing young talents from the hit AMC series Mad Men, Vincent Kartheiser will take the leading role in San Jose Repertory Theatre’s world premiere of The Death of the Novel by Jonathan Marc Feldman.

On hiatus from his TV series role of the slick and devious Pete Campbell, Kartheiser’s San Jose stage debut is as Sebastian, a brilliant young novelist, coping with great personal loss in the aftermath of 9/11. He goes into seclusion in his Manhattan apartment, refusing to write again.  A mysterious and beautiful stranger intrudes, telling incredible stories of her own. Is she yet another fan of his work, or is she something else entirely?

The Death of the Novel, directed by San Jose Rep Artistic Director Rick Lombardo,  will play August 30 through September 23, 2012. More details on the production will be announced this summer.
