New York Theatre Barn Presents Pre-Premiere of PETER AND THE WALL and TIMELINES, Today
On June 23rd you have one chance to see a New York Theatre Barn pre-premiere of the new musical, PETER AND THE WALL by Timothy Huang, and TIMELINES, songs by Michael Cooper) at The Daryl Roth Theatre at 101 East 15th Street just off Union Square. It is your single chance to give these new works, new writers, new directors, and new actors a chance. And it is your chance to see untold stories that can delight and insight the soul.
If you were not one of the first to see a New York Theatre Barn initial reading or workshop of breakthroughs like Adam Gwon's, ORDINARY DAYS, and Brian Feinstein/Robin Moyer Chung's BIG FAT CAT starring Bruce Vilanch, you missed the only chance.
Before the formulas are figured out, you can formulate your own opinions. By attending New York Theatre Barn's monthly "New Works Series," now in its 7th year, you increase your chances of being able to say, "I was there when..."
Remember, every musical has a beginning, and only a select few are part of each inaugural audience.
The chance of being there only comes once. BTW, a pre-premiere is before the beginning, the ultimate in "Theatre in the Raw."
