The world premiere of "Daddy" by Jeremy O. Harris, directed by Danya Taymor, officially opened at the Pershing Square Signature Center March 5. In it, the feverish link between young artist Franklin (Ronald Peet) and older white collector Andre (Alan Cumming) deepens into an irresistible bond, pushing Franklin's mother (Charlayne Woodard) into a battle of wills.

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