Broadway Bound Theatre Festival Announces 2020 Season

Broadway Bound Theatre Festival is excited to announce this year's stellar line-up that will kick off its 2020 season at Theatre Row this August. That's right. This August.

"We move forward with certainty in these uncertain times," says Lenore Skomal, Festival Director of BBTF. "Our playwrights are excited to bring their plays and musicals to the New York stage in hopes that we will be in a safe space later this summer. BBTF has not waivered in its commitment to bring new work this year, despite the overwhelming fear that has gripped the nation. Theatre will indeed come back. And we will help ensure that."

Congratulations to this year's selected productions, which includes for the first time, musicals.

"BBTF has historically been a festival dedicated to the development of straight plays, but with the closing of NYMF, we felt committed to helping all those musical writers who have been left with fewer options. So this year, we are including four musicals in our lineup. We couldn't be more excited," said Skomal.

A warm thanks to all the immensely talented playwrights who submitted their work to the festival. As always, it's a difficult choice, but this year's participants bring these amazing new works to the stage.
