Literati is a night of comedians in character performing hilarious readings. Sophisticated, satirical, and sometimes wigs. Do you ever leave a comedy show saying "Hmm, that was pretty funny but not enough reading"? Then this is the show for you!
Your hosts Colin O'Brien (JFL New Faces) and Michael Wolf (Comedy Central) love to read. They've read upwards of one book between the two of them and now they want to share that love of literature with you!
Theatre Barn's original core program is the New Works Series, an incubator of new musicals now in its 10th season. New Works Series presents bimonthly "pre-premieres" of untold stories in the early stages of development. As a primary incubator, Theatre Barn serves as the first curator and developer of these untold stories. It considers more than 100 new musicals each year before choosing 12 eclectic stories to present. Its selection process becomes a showcase for burgeoning talent and a powerful platform for feedback on a work in its early stages. At each installment, two new musicals are showcased in front of a live audience as well as a worldwide virtual audience. Since the series's inception, Theatre Barn has presented more than 400 writers in 100 pre-premieres and has amassed a catalogue of nearly 2,000 videos with a million views on its YouTube channel. New Works Series originated at the Daryl Roth Theatre and is now in residency at the Cell.
This reading series features three classic absurdist comedies that resonate in the current political environment. Rhinoceros by Eugène Ionesco, directed here by Srda Vasiljevic (Dust Can't Kill Me), considers the plight of the individual in the face of a brutal popular movement. The Trial, adapted by Steven Berkoff from the novel by Franz Kafka and directed by Adrienne Campbell-Holt (What We're Up Against), follows the fate of an accused man amid an inhuman bureaucracy and eroding civil rights. Finally, Harold Pinter's The Hothouse explores what happens when the inmates run an asylum.
