Daniel Beaty’s an award-winning actor, singer, and writer. He’s received numerous awards including the Obie Award for “Emergency”, where Daniel portrays a cast of over 25 characters in this explosive and funny tour-de-force featuring slam poetry, multi-character transformation and song. In the midst of the finals for the nationally televised spoken-word competition, “America’s Next Top Poet,” a slave ship mysteriously emerges in front of the Statue of Liberty, sending NYC into a whirl of emotion and self-examination. Seen through the lens of one of the contestants and his family at the center of the maelstrom, Daniel delightfully teases out his tale with the colorful commentary of neighbors and bystanders. Juxtaposed against the powerful poetry of the other contestants, the responses to this surreal happening and varied testimonies on identity and personal freedom weave a stirring commentary on what it is to be human and the longing to be free.
