Theater: The Great MacDaddy 

-A +A


Play: The Great MacDaddy 

by Paul Carter Harrison

Directed by Alfred Preisser

Come out this week to see Khalil Kain and J Kyle Manzay in the Off-Broadway smash hit The Great MacDaddy at the 777 Theatre, 777 8th ave 2nd floor (between 47 & 48th streets) â€¨â€¨

"It's the excellent cast that rescues the proceedings, invigorating the theater with the kind of energy you only find at the best party in town."

: The Great MacDaddy is a rich and theatrically vital text set to music and expressed largely through folkloric archetypes from the African American oral tradition. It is one of the only plays that examines the African-American journey in the United States in terms of universal myth and metaphor, an African American Odyssey. Wildly funny and theatrically outrageous, Paul Carter Harrison's play is wholly unique, a classic as insightful and timely as when it premiered.
THE PRODUCER: Korner Theatricals has developed Selling Out (which is slated to open at the prestigious Pasadena Playhouse in the Fall of 2013), The Bootleg Blues, and For Vixens Who've Considered Homicide When the Video was Too Much.
Korner Theatricals in association with Sony Entertainment produced the critically acclaimed Hip-Hop Monologues: Inside the Life and Mind of Jim Jones for Columbia Recording artist Jim Jones.
