The remount of Michael McKeever’s play Daniel's Husband will wrap up its engagement at the Westside Theatre December 30. The play, which debuted in New York last spring as part of Primary Stages' 2017 season, returned Off-Broadway this fall with the original cast and director Joe Brancato.
Daniel's Husband tells the story of a couple who have have conflicting views of relationships. Performances began October 18 at Westside Upstairs ahead of an October 28 opening night. Ted Snowdon produces.
“I am extremely proud of this show and everyone involved that made it the emotional and artistic success that it is," says Snowdon. "We knew when we began our commercial transfer that it would be a challenge to have this beautifully written, well-made play stand out in this busy season. I take pride in knowing that this show deeply affected audiences, and provoked them to think, discuss the play, and both laugh and cry.”
The cast is made up of Matthew Montelongo (One Night) as Mitch and Ryan Spahn (Exit Strategy) as Daniel, along with Anna Holbrook (The Dolphin Position), Lou Liberatore (Burn This), and Leland Wheeler (Blue Bloods).
Daniel's Husband features set design by Brian Prather, costume design by Gregory Gale, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, and sound design by William Neal.
McKeever’s plays include 37 Postcards, Stuff, Melt, Charlie Cox Runs with Scissors, and After, which will be in performances September–October at Penguin Rep with direction by Brancato.
