“Girlfriends” alum Khalil Kain and Obie award-winning actor and producer J. Kyle Manzay are set to play Scag and The Great MacDaddy respectively in in the first major revival in 35 years of the Obie award-winning play “The Great MacDaddy.”
Directed by Alfred Preisser, the rich and theatrically vital play-with-music, resurrects many of the fabled heroes of the African-American storytelling tradition and tells the story of a young, egotistical MacDaddy, the beneficiary of his father’s illegal booze fortune during Prohibition, who crosses the American landscape on an odyssey in search of Wine, the custodian of the formula for his father’s legacy. It is a Time-travel odyssey across the United States in the 20th Century that has the young, self-indulgent MacDaddy discovering a world of hostilities where he encounters many cautionary trials and tribulations until he discovers Wine among the ancestors in the South and becomes enlightened with a spiritual wisdom he must share with his people in the 21st Century. “The Great MacDaddy” begins previews November 8th at the new 777 Theater in the Broadway theater district, at 777 8th Ave (Between 47th and 48th), NY, NY. Opening night is officially set for November 15th. For more info visit www.thegreatmacdaddy.com
