  • Overview

    Not only will Harbinger Theater bring their 10th consecutive Capital Region premiere, but this fall’s show is extra special to the Harbinger team. We will be presenting you with a WORLD PREMIERE of Brian Sheldon’s “Custom Cuts”!

    In a show inspired by Sheldon’s life in a dining room of a small Schenectady apartment, shared with his son Anthony, Danny struggles to sweep up the remnants of his failed salon business. Anthony, a full-time cosmetology student, plods along in his dad’s footsteps while working a full-time factory job. Danny, through a careful facade of sass and jokes, is well-loved by his remaining clients. Yet even with Anthony’s support, Danny walks a financial tightrope between maintaining the business he has always wanted and the social indulgences that he craves. The tumultuous and imbalanced relationship between father and son is exposed as the debts pile up and tensions run high. After recently vacating the family apartment, Anthony’s sister Jo wishes to have both her father Danny and stepfather Al walk her down the wedding aisle. But Danny’s vain and domineering pride is too ironclad to give in to his daughter’s request. The great divide between Danny and Al tests Anthony’s love and loyalty, cracking open the door to his own personal and professional freedom.


    SAVE THE DATE! We will be premiering “Custom Cuts” THIS FALL from September 21st to the 30th at the Albany Barn, with all shows starting at 7:30 p.m. A FREE preview will be on September 20th with Talkback Fridays on September 22nd and 29th.
