DEAR JANE  | Open: 07/18/17 Close: 08/26/17
Set in an NYC rehearsal room, DEAR JANE journeys into the life of a passionate artist, Julie, who explores the many divergent paths of her past.

Pressing Matters  | Open: 04/15/17 Close: 05/20/17

A boxed-set of six quirky stories nestled into one evening. Seven words map the course of a young couple’s life. A young woman is on a perpetual quest to move forward with the help of her butler. A mother discovers parenting is an obstacle course in the modern age. Three generations of women find a common voice. Chloe and Essie remember. Passengers await their final destination. Jennifer Jasper's Pressing Matters wastes no words as she weaves tales in her own humorous and heartfelt storytelling style.

WHEN I WAS A GIRL I USED TO SCREAM AND SHOUT  | Open: 04/14/16 Close: 05/08/16
Embracing her Scottish culture and wit, Sharman Macdonald’s When I Was A Girl I Used To Scream and Shout is a bitingly funny, delicately crafted memory play, exploring the parallel growing pains of a mother and daughter. Set in 1983, the play takes a stripped and honest look at the relationship between childless, unmarried Fiona and her crisp, divorced mother Morag, with whom she is sharing a Scottish beach holiday. As the play unfolds we discover it was in the very same resort where at least a decade previously, the young Fiona struggling with an imposed view of religion and sexuality, deliberately got pregnant to prevent Morag's remarriage and her mother's one chance of happiness.

Merchant Of Venice  | Open: 04/14/12 Close: 05/13/12
Theater Breaking Through Barriers' take on Shakespeare's classic THE MERCHANT OF VENICE will be performed in one hour and forty minutes with no intermission, with seven actors, including five with disabilities. A comedy about 4 contracts and 4 outcasts, THE MERCHANT OF VENICE follows a Christian merchant and his relationship with a Jewish moneylender. The contracts deal with flesh, rings, caskets, and livery; and the play asks how you respond to a broken deal: with justice or mercy.

Artistic Director Ike Schambelan states, "'Merchant' is usually seen as a play dealing with anti-Semitism. We think it's about otherness in general since in addition to a Jew, it has a Muslim, a Hispanic, and a blind man — the blind scene is almost always cut." All four of the "others" will be played by one actor, Nicholas Viselli, showing the parallels of prejudice based on race, religion, and disability in a multicultural society that's an international trading center. Be it Venice in 1600 or NYC now, it's a place where cultures clash and conflicts ensue.

The ensemble of THE MERCHANT OF VENICE includes TBTB company members and newcomers, Mary Theresa Archbold, Melanie Boland, Stephen Drabicki, David Harrell, Gregg Mozgala, Pamela Sabaugh, and Nicholas Viselli.

Eva The Chaste  | Open: 07/06/11 Close: 07/24/11
Eva the Chaste, written by Barbara Hammond and produced by Fallen Angel Theatre Company, immerses the audience in the pivotal passions and pressing responsibilities of a woman whose twenty-year sprint away from her past comes crashing to a close as dawn breaks over Dublin Bay. Hammond set out to reveal, through the use of spoken thought, a genuine and intimate portrait of a woman at the crossroads, both literally and figuratively, of her life. The script, set in Dublin and Paris, explores the profound and unpredictable bond between a mother and a daughter; the grasp for life at the approach of death; and the road to hell — shining, smooth and paved with good intentions.

Reflections Of A Heart  | Open: 06/11/10 Close: 06/27/10
Between the Scottsboro Boys and Rosa Parks, there was Isaac Woodard, Jr. Filled with humor and heartbreak, REFLECTIONS OF A HEART is based on true events in America's history that were almost lost in time. Set between 1946 and 1951, the play takes place in the Bronx and South Carolina. Shifting between times, African-American WWII veteran Isaac Woodard, Jr. finds himself under siege by hard-hearted detectives, social injustices, racial prejudices, and his own missing memories. America welcomes back its native son, as a highly decorated war hero, with plans of starting a family. Things go horribly awry when he begins traversing his past and present. The fight for his country is over, as the fight for his life begins.

In February 1946, Sergeant Isaac Woodard, Jr. (1919-1992) was beaten by police in Batesburg, South Carolina, following an innocuous incident on a Greyhound bus. Blinded during the assault, Woodard became the first national symbol in the fight against racial injustice, and garnered support from the likes of President Harry S. Truman, Lena Horne, Harry Belafonte, Orson Welles, and the NAACP. Although Woodard's story is nearly forgotten today, he inspired folk singer/songwriter Woody Guthrie to write the deeply moving ballad "The Blinding of Isaac Woodard," using some of Mr. Woodard's own words: " It's now you've heard my story, there's one thing I can't see. How you could treat a human like they have treated me?" This thrilling American story might have been lost, had it not been for a chance meeting between Roberts and the son of Isaac Woodard Jr.

The ensemble cast of REFLECTIONS OF A HEART includes Mary Ruth Baggot, Reginald L. Barnes, Gail Merzer Behrens, Chanel Carroll, Mark Ellmore, Kevin Green, Gillian Glasco, Jim Heaphy, Heather Massie, Jonathan Miles, Robert Spence, Michael Vincent, and David Wirth.

REFLECTIONS OF A HEART features set design by Jito Lee; costume design by Sarah Cubbage; lighting design by Kayla Globe; and sound design by David Lawson.

23 Knives  | Open: 01/11/09 Close: 02/07/09
In 44 B.C., the fate of the Roman Republic hangs in the balance. The most powerful man in the world, Julius Caesar, lies dead in the Theatre of Pompey, as politicians and military men ambitiously move to fill the void of power. Marcus Antonius summons the physician Antistius to uncover the truth about the assassination through a Greek technique called "autopsy”. But as Antistius discovers more about the crime, the real truth becomes harder to find. Inspired by history's only mention of Antistius in Seutonius's The Twelve Caesars, 23 Knives utilizes contemporary language to weave a darkly comic mystery about politics, patriotism, and the nature of truth.

Cast includes: Brian D. Coats (FOR FLOW, “Sopranos,” “Law & Order: SVU”), Todd Alan Crain (“Important Things With Demetri Martin,” The Producers: The Movie Musical), Rafael Jordan (“Wraiths of Roanoke”), Patrick Melville (My Brother's War, Crazy for the Dog) and Ryan Tramont (Crazy for the Dog, My Brother's War). Creative team includes: Sarah B. Brown (Scenic Design), Sidney Shannon (Costume Design), Pamela Kupper (Lighting Design), Nick Moore (Original Music and Sound Design).

Caesar and Cleopatra  | Open: 01/11/09 Close: 02/07/09
Four years before Julius Caesar sailed to Rome to meet his untimely end, the great leader sought to conquer the outer reaches of the land, always questing for a kindred spirit to rival his own. What he finds, sitting on top of an ancient Egyptian Sphinx, is a young Queen Cleopatra, who beguiles him not only with her beauty, but because she may be the very match he's been seeking. Shaw's witty, satirical masterpiece personalizes the political relationship between an occupying force and a foreign power, and demonstrates that modern civilization has done little to advance the basic nature of the human soul.

Cast includes: Pun Bandhu (Film: Burn After Reading, Ugo's Last Dance), Alberto Bonilla (Resonance’s The Cherry Orchard, Film: My Best Friend’s Girl), Chris Ceraso (On the Road to Ruin, “Hot for Teacher”), Michael Chmiel (EST Perfect & Constant , “The Bronx is Burning”), Rand Guerrero (Richard III), Christopher Hayes, Rafael Jordan (“Wraiths of Roanoke”), Jon Levenson (Gaslight, The Hairy Ape), Geraldine LiBrandi (“The Sopranos”), Joe MacDougall (Tom Cruise Get Off the Couch), Sophie Maerowitz (The Actor’s Practicum), Brad Makarowski (Our Country’s Good) , Jessica Myhr (“All My Children,” The Cherry Orchard), Wrenn Schmidt (Broadway’s Come Back Little Sheba), Sarah Stockton (Time of Your Life), Grant James Varjas (33 To Nothing, Film: The Laramie Project), Maxwell Zener (American Girls). Creative team includes: Sarah B. Brown (Scenic Design), Michelle Eden Humphrey (Costume Design), Pamela Kupper (Lighting Design), Robert C. Rees (Original Music), Nick Moore (Sound Design).
 

Stone Cold Dead Serious  | Open: 02/02/07 Close: 02/18/07

But he may have to make the ultimate sacrifice -- participating in a real-life fight-to-the-death video game competition!
Coriolanus  | Open: 06/14/06 Close: 06/25/06
CORIOLANUS, thought by T.S. Eliot to be Shakespeare's greatest tragedy, is the story of an impossible man. Coriolanus is early Republican Rome's military hero, driven from the city then begged to spare it; a politician who refuses to indulge in spin and who will not disguise his contempt for the people; the infantilized son of one Shakespeare's most powerful and fascinating women, Volumnia.
