Penguin Rep Theatre closes 2016 season with New York premiere of Michael McKeever’s “Daniel’s Husband”

September 23 through October 16 in Stony Point, N.Y.

Penguin Rep Theatre in Stony Point closes its 2016 season with the New York premiere of “Daniel’s Husband” by Michael McKeever from September 23 through October 16, 2016.

In “Daniel’s Husband,” Mitchell and Daniel are everything but married. Mitchell does not believe in marriage; Daniel does. “When their life together takes a shocking and unexpected turn,” says Artistic Director Joe Brancato, who will stage the production at Penguin Rep, “we learn about the power and pain of love in this breathtaking new play.”

Described by The Miami Herald as “beautifully crafted, powerfully realized and emotionally devastating,” “Daniel’s Husband” is the winner of this year’s Carbonell Award for Best Play.

Mr. Brancato will also direct an upcoming production of “Daniel’s Husband” at Primary Stages at the Cherry Lane Theatre in 2017.

Emmy Award winner Anna Holbrook and Tony Award nominee Lou Liberatore join Matthew Montelongo, Ryan Spahn and Leland Wheeler in the cast. Executive director of the show is Andrew M. Horn.

Performances of “Daniel’s Husband” are scheduled at Penguin Rep’s Barn Theatre in historic Stony Point (Rockland County). Penguin’s intimate, 108-seat theatre, which is located at 7 Crickettown Road, is converted from an 1880s hay barn, and offers air-conditioning, wheelchair accessible entrance, rest rooms and seating, and plenty of free parking.

Performance days and times are: Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m.Friday and Saturday nights at 8:00 p.m., with matinees on Saturdays at 4 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. There is also a special weekday matinee on Friday, September 23 at 2:00 p.m.
