The New Group and Vineyard Theatre proudly present Jeremy O. Harris’ “Daddy,” with Alan Cumming and Ronald Peet. Previews begin February 12 in advance of an Official Opening Night on Tuesday, March 5. 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 Zora (Charlayne Woodard) 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.


    1. Go to and search for Daddy. You can buy individual tickets there. It is linked from both the Vineyard Theatre ticket page (under the Looking for single tickets section) and TheatreMania. I would hurry though – very few orchestra tickets left and only a few balcony views left (the website says partial obstruction which irritates me – why build a theater with partial views. But looking at pics of the Theater on Google they dont seem too bad).

  1. Reviews came out today. Seems to be a lot skin (jockstrap and Speedos) but no full frontal. Anyone hear differently?

    1. Hollywood Reporter reviewer mentions a ton of full frontal nudity and says if you ever wondered if Alan Cumming is circumcised, this is the show for you! Many of the user reviews on Show Score also mention full frontal nudity.

  2. i missed the first act so i can’t comment but in the beginning of the third act both actors (alan cumming & ronald peet) strip down and take a dip in the pool. Unfortunately i was far back and can’t comment on ronald peet. However alan cumming is uncut and fairly smooth with only hair on the pubic area. He then spanks ronald peet’s bare behind before they get dressed. The scene lasts about a few minutes. Tix are really hard to come by unless you become a season ticket holder.
