Additional casting has been announced to join 2-time Golden Globe nominee and Tony Award winner Alan Cumming in the upcoming world premiere of Jeremy O. Harris' new play "Daddy", directed by Danya Taymor, which is scheduled to begin previews at The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at the Pershing Square Signature Center on February 12, 2019, ahead of an official opening on March 5 and a limited engagement through to March 31, 2019.

Joining Mr. Cumming (who takes on the role of Andre) on stage will be Tommy Dorfman (as Max), Kahyun Kim (as Bellamy), Hari Nef (as Alessia), Ronald Peet (as Franklin), and Charlayne Woodard (as Zora).

Synopsis: "In “Daddy,” Franklin, a young black artist on the verge of his first show, meets Andre, 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."

The creative team of "Daddy" features scenic design by Matt Saunders, costume design by Montana Levi Blanco, lighting design by Isabella Byrd, and sound design by Lee Kinney.

"Daddy" is a co-production, produced off-Broadway by The New Group and the Vineyard Theatre.
