The story of a seemingly perfect gay couple with different views on marriage, this unflinching look at how we choose to tie the knot—or not—returns Off-Broadway. More…
Daniel and Mitchell are the perfect couple. Perfect house, perfect friends -- even a mother who wants them married. They'd have the perfect wedding, too, except that Mitchell doesn't believe in gay marriage. A turn of events puts their perfect life in jeopardy, and Mitchell is thrust into a future where even his love may not prove to be enough. "Daniel's Husband" is a bold reflection of love, commitment, and family in our perilous new world.
