Under the direction of Co-Artistic Directors Lee Brock and Seth Barrish, founded in 1986, The Barrow Group (TBG) has earned its award-winning reputation for unconditional dedication to the art of acting. Originally founded and operated out of a railroad flat on Barrow Street, TBG has grown into a mid-size theatre organization currently housed in the "Theatre Building" in Midtown. TBG received a 2005 Drama Desk Nomination for Best Play for PENTECOST and received the 1995 Drama Desk Award for Off-Off Broadway Excellence.

TBG's commitment to developing new plays is currently witnessed with the Broadway production of A STEADY RAIN, which received a workshop at TBG in 2007, the recent Off-Broadway hit and Drama Desk Award Nominee SLEEPWALK WITH ME, starring Mike Birbiglia and developed and directed by Seth Barrish, and Jon Maran's THE TEMPERAMENTALS, which began in our Reading Series, receiving subsequent runs in both our Studio Theatre and on our Main Stage as a co-production of Man Underdog and Daryl Roth Productions.
