Daniel is a playwright, composer and lyricist living in Brooklyn. His pieces What Really Happened and A Glorious Evening were published in Applause Books’ THE BEST AMERICAN SHORT PLAYS 2009-2010 and 2007-2008 respectively. Daniel’s play, HEE-HAW: It’s a Wonderful Li_e, a counter-telling of the holiday classic from the perspective of Sam Wainwright, was called a "delightful surprise" by the New York Times (Nuyorican Poets Café). His musical, To Paint The Earth, written with composer Jonathan Portera, won the Richard Rodgers Development Award and was selected for the 2008 New York Musical Theatre Festival (37 Arts). The show, which will have a staged reading at New Jersey Rep this month, tells the story of the Jewish underground in the Warsaw Ghetto and the ultimate decision to fight back. His other works have been presented at La Mama, Long Wharf Theater, the 92nd Street Y’s Steinhardt Center, and 13th Street Rep. Daniel served as a Jonathan Larson Memorial Fellow at the Dramatists Guild and is a MacDowell Colony fellow. He holds an MFA from NYU Tisch and a BA from Yale. Nothing in this bio makes him a likely candidate to have written SPANDEX.
