TO HELP US REACH 15K

Now entering our 15th year, New York Theatre Barn has been a leader in the development of original musicals. Our track record proves the core of what we do: limitation is creation! During the pandemic, we pivoted, evolving our programming and storytelling systems to continue supporting artists and the development of original musicals. We showcased the development of 96 Original Musicals, created by 181 Writers, while making space for over 600 Artists. A global pandemic and a systemic reckoning gave us the unique opportunity to empower artists, lift up culture shifting stories, support our community, and make musical theatre development the most accessible that it’s ever been both for artists and audiences. 

The works that we have produced, created mostly by BIPOC and underrepresented artists, have gone on to produce their work on Broadway, Off-Broadway and in regional theatres. Each of our programs (the New Works Series, the Choreography Lab, Residencies, and Theatre Barn Records) provide a home for the musicals of tomorrow. We are working with our community to raise $15,000 by the end of 2021 to support our work in our 15th year.
