The Barrow Group was founded in 1986 by an ensemble of actors and directors, all of whom shared a desire to produce meaningful plays using a highly naturalistic, intimate mode of performance. Since that time, TBG has developed and/or produced over 150 shows, including Martin Moran’s The Tricky Part (2004 Obie Award and two Drama Desk nominations), Jon Marans’ The Temperamentals (2009 Drama Desk Award), Mike Birbiglia’s My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend (2011 Lucille Lortel Award), David Edgar’s Pentecost (2013 Drama Desk nomination), and Martin Moran’s All the Rage (2013 Lucille Lortel Award). In 2005, TBG received a Drama Desk Award for Off-off-Broadway Excellence.
TBG’s core programming consists of 1) its annual Mainstage Season, 2) the Developmental Wing (where new works are introduced to the organization and then nurtured via readings and short workshops), and 3) Performing Arts Classes for professionals and beginners (acting, directing, and playwriting).
TBG’s Mainstage Season is produced in its 99-seat theatre, with an emphasis on work that engages artists and audiences alike through a realistic performance style.
TBG’s Developmental Wing is part of its ongoing support of new works. This programming is free for artists to participate in and includes: FAB Women; Artist Performance Residencies; First Fridays; and in-house readings.
