The Barrow Group Theatre Company’s productions in this space include Pentecost by David Edgar (Drama Desk nominee), The Timekeepers by Dan Clancy, Gray Area by John Ahlin, The Fear Project, and Short Stuff 7, among others. It was also housed the New York premiere of The Temperamentals by Jon Marans. The list of guest productions includes those by The New York Musical Theater Festival, The Immigrants Theater Project, The National Asian American Theatre Company, Royal Family Productions, Lesser America, Wide Eyed Productions and Pulse Ensemble Theatre Company to name a few. The theatre can accommodate long runs as well as shorter engagements readings, improv activities, and special events.

Due to the requirements of TBG programming, we cannot accommodate ‘lockout’ rentals for show rehearsals or ongoing rentals for outside acting, voice or other classes.

Technical Information:

In its proscenium configuration, the deck dimensions are 22′ wide by approximately 27′ deep. Depth depends on placement of first row of seats. Grid height is 14′. The back wall has exits upstage right and left, enabling crossovers, and a 2nd story level escape door upstage right, for double height sets. The layout also enables actors to easily make entrances through the audience door and through the back of the house.

There are 48 dimmers. There is ample power to support portable dimmer racks. The ETC dimmers run off a 3-phase 200amp system. An additional 3-phase 100 amps can be provided. There are 48 circuits in the air. For information on availability, please call 212-760-2615 or send a detailed email to rentals@barrowgroup.org.
