New York Theatre Barn in the D-Lounge, now in its 4th year, is a monthly event that was creaTed May of 2007 in the D-Lounge at the Daryl Roth Theatre. The series transferred to The Duplex in the West Village in January of 2008 and returned to the D-Lounge in January of 2010.

NYTB in the D-Lounge takes place on the last Monday of every month and is a platform for emerging songwriters and performers. The series fuses two contrasting writers (or writing teams) to create an eclectic evening of music and theatre. The evening is not only a celebration of new work, as we wish to further engage our audience by encouraging networking between the artists involved and the people who attend the event. We often feature selections from our current projects in development between sets. The social event is casual and fun, however expectations and ambitions are high. It is New York Theatre Barn's continued mission to serve emerging artists and to investigate, develop and advance new work.

The featured writers for the January 2011 installment are Adam Overett & Peter Saxe.  Music & Lyrics by Adam Overtt (Prospect Theater Company's Snapshots)

Meet the Double-Threat Trio: three unfortunate performers who can't master their third skill to save their lives. Meet a starry-eyed young girl who wants to be a clinically insane Scottish murderess when she grows up. Meet the grandson from Dirty Dancing (you know, the one with "two hotels") and find out what he REALLY wants to say to the Jennifer Grey character. Meet other people too. Oh, you don't know them? YOU SHOULD.

They'll be played by the likes of Elena Shaddow (La Cage Aux Folles), Amy Justman (Company), Amanda(The Importance of Being Earnest), Michael Lluberes (Dirty Dancing), Aspen Vincent  (American Idiot), Jaclyn Huberman (I Love You Because), & Adam (The Light in the Piazza) himself.
