IN NOVEMBER 2016, Daniel's musical, Luna Park, for which he wrote the libretto (music and lyrics by Hyeyoung Kim and Michael Cooper) had a staged reading in London, as part of the "From Page to Stage" Festival.
The festival also featured the European premier of litte-known-writer Lin-Manuel Miranda's "21 Chump Street." Needless to say, he was honored to share the bill!
Luna Park tells the story of the first modern amusement park at Coney Island, dubbed "America's Playground." The park had a stunning rise and fall at the turn-of-the-century that mirrored the lives of its troubled creators, architect Frederic Thompson and entrepreneur Elmer "Skip" Dundy.
