A genre-fucking play about unapologetic storytelling, family both born and chosen, and the messiness of intersectional identities, Daniel & Esther & Dragon journey through autobiography, imagination, & maybe the Korean War.

Daniel K. Isaac was born and raised in sunny Southern California. When he was in fifth grade, his mother heard a mortifying story about a preacher who went numb with stage fright and had to be escorted off the stage. Isaac was promptly signed up for Grace Korean Church’s theatre troupe and he’s been an actor ever since. After receiving his Bachelor’s in Theatre from the University of California – San Diego (UCSD), Isaac moved to not-always-sunny New York City where he’s been seen on large and small screens and stages. Some Film/TV Credits include: “Foshay” on The Jim Gaffigan Show (TV LAND), MONEY MONSTER (dir. Jodie Foster, with George Clooney and Julia Roberts), “Virgil” on Person of Interest (CBS, recurring), The Following (FOX), Believe (NBC, pilot), TOO BIG TO FAIL (HBO) and  “Ben Kim” on SHOWTIME’s Billions (with Paul Giamatti and Damian Lewis). Some upcoming projects include: Search Party (TBS), Crashing (HBO), Shades of Blue (NBC) and Drew (CBS, pilot). www.danielkisaac.com
