BBTF 2018 Primary Lineup

March 5, 2018

Broadway Bound, New York City’s premiere theatre festival, is delighted to announce the primary lineup of plays for its 2018 season! The festival will be held August 4 - 26, at the Theater at the 14th St Y in the heart of the electric East Village, NYC. The plays selected have been carefully curated by a panel of award-winning writers through a blind submission process and present a diverse and relevant selection of stories by writers from all over the US. 

 

BBTF’s impact statement is to turn playwrights into producers by providing a thorough education in theatrical production. Participants are supported throughout the festival process by the professionals on the BBTF team and panel; months of practical workshops, biweekly informational packets, and script critiques, culminate in three performances on par with any professional Off Broadway production.
