The Barrow Group (recipient of the 1995 Drama Desk Award for Off-Off Broadway Excellence) produces critically acclaimed theater at affordable ticket prices and also conducts a number of programs.

For example, the 1-Play Development/Reading Series, in which new plays and revivals are given public readings and workshops; the 2-TBG School, which offers classes for professional actors and directors integrating Barrow Group techniques; and the 3-Theatre Outreach Program for Students, an educational outreach program in which artists from the Barrow Group community conduct workshops for at-risk youth in alternative high schools.
