Performances begin February 13 (instead of the previously announced Febraury 12) at the Pershing Square Signature Center for the world premiere of "Daddy" by Slave Play playwright Jeremy O. Harris. The playwright's newest work is an exploration of intimacy and identity in which Basquiats, gospel, and fantasy collide around a Bel Air swimming pool.

"Daddy" is directed by Danya Taymor and is co-produced Off-Broadway by The New Group and The Vineyard Theatre. Leading the cast are Ronald Peet, who stars as young artist Franklin; Alan Cumming as Andre, an older white art collector; and Charlayne Woodard as Franklin's mother.

In "Daddy," Franklin and Andre's feverish link deepens into an irresistible bond, pushing Franklin's mother into a battle of wills over the soul of the man they both call baby.

Completing the cast are Carrie Compere, Tommy Dorfman, Kahyun Kim, Denise Manning, Hari Nef, and Onyie Nwachukwu.

"Daddy" is playing in The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at the Signature Center, where it will officially open March 5.

The limited Off-Broadway engagement features scenic design by Matt Saunders, costume design by Montana Levi Blanco, lighting design by Isabella Byrd, and sound design by Lee Kinney. Casting is by Judy Henderson, CSA, and the production stage manager is Valerie A. Peterson.
