The Cloisters is reprising the production of The Play of Daniel as part of its 75th anniversary celebration. The play was previously presented at the Cloisters in 2008.
Written in France in the 12th century, the play tells the story of the prophet Daniel interpreting the handwriting on the wall and his delivery from the lion's den. The New York Times called the 2008 production "ambitious," adding "The Cloisters must bring it back next holiday season, ideally for an extended run."
Tickets to this season's production, which for two weekends in January, are $75. There are two performances each day, at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
