We are excited to announce that in our 33rd season Theater Breaking Through Barriers will be presenting the New York City premiere of According to Goldman, a play by Bruce Graham, opening Off-Broadway on April 6th and continuing through May 5th.
Theater Breaking Through Barriers is the only Off-Broadway theater, and one of the few theaters in the country, dedicated to advancing actors and writers with disabilities and changing the image of people with disabilities from dependence to independence. The cast includes Stephen Drabicki, Pamela Sabaugh and Nicholas Viselli, mixing able-bodied, hard-of-hearing and visually-impaired actors.
The New York Times calls us “an extraordinary troupe designed to defy expectations”. The New York Post says we are “quite simply one of the most enjoyable companies in the country,” and The Village Voice touts us as “long purveyors of quality drama.”
According to Goldman tells the story of Gavin Miller, a former Hollywood screenwriter, who has left the industry to teach a college-level screenwriting course in the northeast. Jeremiah, a student in the class from Africa with an affinity for old films and Fred Astaire, proves to be a promising writer. Gavin and Jeremiah begin working on a Hollywood screenplay about Jeremiah’s life with the hopes of making it big. Gavin’s wife Melinda is less than thrilled to hear that her husband wants another shot in Tinseltown.
