First Look: Daniel Breaker in 'The Performers'

Daniel Breaker (Shrek: The Musical) returns to the stage in The Performers, a new romantic comedy about life and love in the adult entertainment industry that will officially open Nov. 14 at the Longacre Theater.

Breaker, who earned a Tony nomination for his role in the Broadway production of Passing Strage, will play a New York Post reporter and a childhood friend of a porn star who’s life changes after he attends a porn industry event.

Producers bill the show: “It is the night of the Adult Film Awards, and Lee (Breaker), a tabloid journalist, has come to Las Vegas to interview his high school friend Mandrew (Cheyenne Jackson), a hot new star. Lee, who’s accompanied by his fiancée Sara (Alicia Silverstone), first sees Mandrew as an exotic creature; but soon enough begins to question his own, more conservative lifestyle. Meanwhile, Sara is having doubts too, and she enlists Mandrew’s wife Peeps (Ari Graynor) – also a performer – to compare notes on intimacy and the fear of commitment. Awards, sequins, and Barry Manilow converge as everyone tries to navigate the ins, outs, ups and downs of relationships. Thank goodness Chuck Wood (Henry Winkler), the hardest-working man in the business, is on hand to remind everyone that size matters… but love matters more.”
