A Note Regarding the Barrow Street Theatre

 

Greetings, Internet!

 

 

For the past 6 years I have had the immense good fortune to work at the Barrow Street Theatre, a wonderful Off-Broadway space in the West Village. Alas, due to us losing our lease, yesterday was the theater’s last day of operations.

 

 

I cannot accurately articulate how much the Barrow Street Theatre has meant to me. Under the inspired leadership of producers Scott Morfee and Tom Whirtshafter, many incredible plays have passed through our doors. I have had the privilege of working at Barrow Street during the runs of the American premiere of Nina Raine’s “Tribes”, the original production of Jonathan Tolins “Buyer and Cellar”, the extended commercial run of Annie Baker’s “The Flick”, the American premieres of “Every Brilliant Thing” and “The Effect”, as well as the immersive, pie-shop-set production of “Sweeney Todd”.

 

 

Barrow Street has been a home to me, its staff has been a family, and the multitude of visiting artists have been a continual source of inspiration. I shall miss the Barrow Street Theatre terribly, but I find solace in countless memories of good theater done well within those walls. Thanks to the whole Barrow Street gang for everything; it’s been a wonderful ride.
