DANNY AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA
This production was a passion project of Hannah Beck. What was to be a weekend performance with some friends turned into a full blown Equity production at The Davenport Theatre, with my producing partner, and husband to Hannah, Sean Hoagland.

The setting is a rundown bar in the Bronx, where two of society's rejects, Danny and Roberta, strike up a halting conversation over their beer. He is a brooding, self-loathing young man who resorts more to violence than reason, she is a single mother who lives with the parents who raise her child and spends her nights out partying late, and is out looking for reasons to prove her worthlessness to herself.
