Play Development is an important aspect of The Barrow Group’s programming. TBG regularly gives new plays and revivals public readings and workshops in our Studio Theatre. This provides a forum for works-in-progress to be presented to audiences for evaluation before going into production.
TBG’s Commitment to Developing New Plays:
- the Off-Broadway production of My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend by Mike Birbiglia, which won the Lucille Lortel Winner for Best Solo Show (2011) was developed at TBG and directed by Seth Barrish.
- A Steady Rain by Keith Huff, received its first New York theater workshop at TBG in 2007. The play was subsequently produced on Broadway starring Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman.
- the Off-Broadway hit and Drama Desk Award Nominee Sleepwalk With Me, starring Mike Birbiglia was developed at TBG and directed by Seth Barrish
- The Temperamentals by Jon Marans began in our Reading Series receiving a smash run on our Main Stage as a co-production of Man Underdog and Daryl Roth Productions. The play then moved to New World Stages for an extended Off-Broadway run.
