Daniel's Husband Celebrates Opening Night at Cherry Lane Theatre
Joe Brancato directs Michael McKeever's play for Primary Stages.
Michael McKeever's Daniel's Husband, directed by Joe Brancato, opened last night, Wednesday, April 5. The Primary Stages production is a limited run at the Cherry Lane Theatre and will conclude Friday, April 28.
In the play, "we see Daniel and Mitchell enjoying life as the Perfect Couple. Perfect house, perfect friends, even a mother who wants them to wed. What isn't perfect is that Daniel longs to be married and Mitchell does not. A turn of events forces both men to face the consequences of their opposing views, and they learn that they are living in a world where fundamental rights aren't always so fundamental."
The cast includes Anna Holbrook (Another World) as Lydia Bixby, Lou Liberatore (Burn This) as Barry Dylan, Matthew Montelongo (A View From the Bridge) as Mitchell Howard, Ryan Spahn (Exit Strategy) as Daniel Bixby, and Leland Wheeler (Blue Bloods) as Trip.
The creative team includes Brian Prather (scenic design), Jennifer Caprio (costume design), Christina Watanabe (lighting design), and William Neal (original music and sound design).
