Tommy Dorfman, Kahyun Kim, Hari Nef, Ronald Peet and Charlayne Woodard Join Alan Cumming in DADDY

The New Group and Vineyard Theatre announce additional casting for Jeremy O. Harris' "Daddy," with Tommy Dorfman, Kahyun Kim, Hari Nef, Ronald Peet and Charlayne Woodard joining Alan Cumming, as previously announced, in this world premiere production directed by Danya Taymor. Previews begin February 12 in advance of an Official Opening Night on Tuesday, March 5, 2019. A limited Off-Broadway engagement is slated through March 31 at The Pershing Square Signature Center (The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre, 480 West 42nd Street).

In Jeremy O. Harris' searing new play "Daddy," 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. Basquiats and Birkins, gospel and pop, and fantasy and reality collide around a Bel Air swimming pool in this deeply surreal exploration of intimacy and identity. Danya Taymor (Pass Over) directs this wildly theatrical and dangerous world-premiere co-production from The New Group and Vineyard Theatre.

This production features Alan Cumming (Andre), Tommy Dorfman (Max), Kahyun Kim (Bellamy), Hari Nef (Alessia), Ronald Peet (Franklin) and Charlayne Woodard (Zora). Scenic Design is by Matt Saunders. Costume Design is by Montana Levi Blanco. Lighting Design is by Isabella Byrd. Sound Design is by Lee Kinney. Casting is by Judy Henderson, CSA. Production Stage Manager is Valerie A. Peterson.
