DannyDanny and the Deep Blue Sea

By John Patrick Shanley
Directed by Heidi Hawkins
Starring Shawn Baichoo, Christina Filippidis

Danny and the Deep Blue Sea is a powerful, unflinching look at alienation and the exorcising power of love. The subtitle of this darkly beautiful piece is “An Apache Dance” –  the name of a fast, violent and sexually charged street dance between a Parisian gangster and his girl.

With a spare, effective set, under the lighting of multiple MECCA nominee Jody Burkholder, the McGill Players Theatre is transformed into a rundown bar in the Bronx. Two of society's rejects, Danny and Roberta, strike up a halting conversation over their beers. He is bruised and hostile; his out-of-control anger may have driven him to murder. She is a self-loathing single mother, unable to escape the memory of an ugly sexual incident involving her father. Wary at first, they unexpectedly, hesitantly, begin to open up to one another. In the end, there are no easy answers for Danny and Roberta, or for the audience. But their funny, frightening and ultimately fascinating interaction offers us insight and compassion for these deeply flawed, and truly human, characters.
