Get a first glimpse at the Off-Broadway production of Danny and the Deep Blue Sea starring Aubrey Plaza and Christopher Abbott with new production photos. The revival of John Patrick Shanley's play is running at the Lucille Lortel Theatre through January 3, 2024. See the photos in the gallery below.
The play follows Danny and Roberta, two desperate people in the Bronx that have a chance meeting in a dive bar. What follows is an encounter "so dangerous and so beautiful" that it "redefines the meaning of love." Abbott and Plaza play Danny and Roberta, respectively.
Jeff Ward is making his stage directorial debut with the production, which features movement by Bobbi Jene Smith and Or Schraiber, scenic design by Scott Pask, lighting design by John Torres, costume design by Arianne Phillips, and sound design by Kate Marvin.
