Studio Reading Series
DEADHEADS by Ali Viterbi
Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 7:00PM

The Barrow Group
312 West 36th Street 3rd Floor
New York, NY 10018


As a part of our ongoing support of new works, The Barrow Group presents a reading series of works in progress. This series has spawned a number of off-Broadway and Broadway plays including: The Tricky Part and All the Rage by Martin Moran, Sleepwalk with Me and My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend by Mike Birbiglia, A Steady Rain by Keith Huff and Honey Brown Eyes by Stefanie Zadravec. It also serves as a forum to receive feedback from audience members on plays (published and unpublished) being considered for production.

The Barrow Group produces monthly readings in our Studio theatre (with summers off). The Barrow Group primarily uses actors who have completed Scene Study 2 and directors who have completed Directing Workshop 2 . Interested in getting involved? Please email elizabeth@barrowgroup.org.

The ticket price is a suggested donation. We pay each of the actors in the reading as well as the director. The suggested ticket price is what covers this expense. Should you not want to make this $5 donation, you can use the code "StudioReading" to reserve a ticket.

Sex, drugs and the Grateful Dead. DEADHEADS chronicles Sadie and Ethan’s twenty-year relationship as they follow the Grateful Dead. An ode to a dying generation and a dying relationship.
