The Riverside Theatre will present Daniel Beaty's newest solo play Mr. Joy, May 12-June 2.

Directed by Tony Award nominee Sheryl Kaller, the play revolves around Mr. Joy, a Chinese American immigrant who has run a shoe shop in the heart of Harlem for the past 25 years when an unexpected occurrence causes several of his customers to reflect on the impact he has had on their lives through their shoes. What has happened to this community's joy and what will it take to reclaim it?

Beaty is an award-winning actor, singer, writer, and composer who just completed an extended off-Broadway run of his acclaimed solo play Through the Night. For this production, Daniel received the 2010 AUDELCO Award for Outstanding Solo Performance and the 2010 Ovation Award for Best Male Lead Actor. His critically acclaimed solo play Emergence-See! ran off-Broadway to a sold-out, extended run at The Public Theater in the fall of 2006. For this production, he received the 2007 Obie Award for Excellence in Off-Broadway Theater for Writing & Performing and the 2007 AUDELCO Award for Solo Performance.
