what the critics are saying

In 'Daniel's Husband,' an unlikely opponent to gay marriage emerges

In 'Daniel's Husband,' an unlikely opponent to gay marriage emerges

The play about same-sex marriage (and a few other things) may be a fleet 80 intermission-free minutes, but the Davie-based playwright Michael McKeever has managed to create a world of wit, wisdom and woe.
DANIEL'S HUSBAND AT ISLAND CITY IS A MASTERPIECE

DANIEL'S HUSBAND AT ISLAND CITY IS A MASTERPIECE

South Florida playwright Michael McKeever's latest work, Daniel's Husband, is a comedy; then it's a tragedy. It warms hearts and then breaks them, leaving in its wake a foundation-rattling cautionary tale about the necessity of marriage equality that might be the most momentous play he's ever written. Under Andy Rogow's sensitive, tortured direction and performed by a cast perfectly in sync with the soul-scraping demands of the emotionally topsy-turvy script, the show'sIsland City Stage premiere is one of 2015's handful of unassailable masterpieces.

Island City Stage to Premiere DANIEL'S HUSBAND, Begin. 5/28

The play, workshopped at 'Jan McArt's New Play Reading Series' at Boca Raton's Lynn University last winter, delves into the lives of a gay couple; Mitchell, who does not believe in gay marriage and Daniel who desperately wants to be married. After a life-altering event, both men learn that, even in an enlightened society, when fundamental rights are denied the results can be devastating. With humor, pathos and great insight, Daniel's Husband explores the consequences of accepting the limitations defined by society.
