Birney is currently appearing in “The Rose Tattoo” at the Williamstown Theater Festival opposite Marisa Tomei.

Dan’s many credits range from Silence of the Lambs to Crazy, Stupid Love, on film; from “Frasier” to “Prayers for Bobby” to “From the Earth to the Moon,” on TV, as well as major roles on and off Broadway.
