With Daniel’s guidance, Drax Productions executive produced a recent cinematic album adaptation of Schumann’s Dichterliebe produced by Helio Arts, entitled After/Glow, starring John Holiday, with poetry by Marc Bahmuti Joseph, directed by Ryan McKinney; launch date is August 2021. Drax Productions is also in development of a TV cooking show, for which the sizzle reel was filmed in Los Angeles in August 2021, and is investing in a slate of horror movies to be filmed in the next two years.
On Broadway, Drax Productions was most recently represented by a new adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol from Tony Award-winners Jack Thorne and Matthew Warchus. The production was a New York Times Critic’s Pick, with Ben Brantley writing that it “ingeniously [deployed] tools unique to live performance to create an interactive relationship of give-and-take with the audience.” After a COVID pandemic induced halt during the 2020 holiday season, the production will be revived as a touring show for the 2021 holiday season in Spokane, Phoenix, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles.
