Keegan Presents Wendy Wasserstein’s An American Daughter: Opening May 7

AMERICAN DAUGHTER was chosen because Keegan’s artistic leadership felt that the timing was right for its themes: feminism in politics and the media. “AMERICAN DAUGHTER feels like the right show to produce at this moment in our nation’s history,” says Mark A.
