HIGHLY RECOMMENDED SATIRE
NOW EXTENDED TO JULY 11, 2021

Boy, did I ever enjoy this one! The year is 2020 and the American theater is shut down … but it is not shut off. The new play Off Broadway follows the staff of a non-profit theater as they come together on Zoom and scramble to stave off extinction. The dark but ridiculously funny satire is a scathing critique of an industry desperately trying to reinvent itself in the midst of a pandemic. This one of a kind adaptation has an all-star cast, and is on Broadstream, a new digital media streaming platform. Written by Torrey Townsend (The Workshop) and directed by Robert O’Hara (Tony nominee, Slave Play) Off Broadway is now available to the public from June 24 to July 11, 2021. It will be FREE to receive a link to the show, but advance email signup is requested.

The full cast (in alphabetical order) features Dylan Baker (The Good Wife, Spider-Man 2 & 3), Becky Ann Baker (Girls, Big Little Lies), Jessica Frances Dukes (Ozark, Jessica Jones), Jason Butler Harner (Ozark, Changeling), Hal Linden (Barney Miller, The Rothschilds (Broadway), Jillian Mercado (The L Word), Richard Kind (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Inside Out), and Kara Wang (Good Trouble, Top Gun: Maverick).

The full creative/ production team (in alphabetical order) includes The Chamber Group (Public Relations), Laura Elkeslassy (Script/ Production Consultant), Ari Fulton (Costume Designer/ Props Consultant), Jim Glaub (Technical Consultant), Miranda Gohh (Company/ Production Manager), Teniece Divya Johnson (Intimacy Director/ Empathy Culture Consultant), Clarissa Marie Ligon (Production Coordinator), Twi McCallum (Sound Designer), Kameron Neal (Graphic Designer), Nicholas Polonio (Associate Producer), softFocus (Consulting Partner), Victor Vazquez, CSA – X Casting (Casting Director), and Leah Vicencio (Technical Director/ Video Editor)
