Alan Cumming and the company of Jeremy O. Harris's "Daddy" met the press on January 15. The New Group and Vineyard Theatre coproduction, directed by Danya Taymor, begins previews February 12 in advance of an official opening night on March 5. A limited off-Broadway engagement is slated through March 31 at the Pershing Square Signature Center.

Joining Cumming in the production are Tommy Dorfman, Fran Jaye, Kahyun Kim, Hari Nef, Ronald Peet, and Charlayne Woodard.

In the play, Franklin (Ronald Peet), "a young black artist on the verge of his first show, meets Andre (Alan Cumming), an older white art collector, and before long their feverish link deepens into an irresistible bond. But when Franklin's Christian mother decides that her son is in peril, she enters into a battle of wills with Andre over the soul of the man they both call baby."

The cast and creative team of "Daddy" — Tommy Dorfman, Charlayne Woodard, Ronald Peet, director Danya Taymor, Fran Jaye, Kahyun Kim, Hari Nef, Alan Cumming, and playwright Jeremy O. Harris.
