“Before the pandemic, Torrey and I had been developing his brilliant new satire examining the white supremacy that has been lurking behind the walls of the American theater,” explains director O’Hara in a statement. “For months, I couldn’t get it out of my head, so I suggested that we do exactly what theater was doing during the pandemic–go digital–because, of course, the same systemic issues remain ‘offline.’ I’m so excited to share this new work as we begin to reopen our theaters and hopefully prepare to come back in a more equitable and much less toxic manner.”

Airing for free from June 24 - June 27 on new digital media streaming platform Broadstream Media, Off Broadway is presented by Tony-nominated Slave Play playwright and Zola screenwriter Jeremy O. Harris, in association with Lucas Katler (Tony nominee, Slave Play) and Jana Shea (Tony nominee, Slave Play). Its star-studded cast features (in alphabetical order): Dylan Baker (The Good Wife, Spider-Man 2 & 3), Becky Ann Baker (Girls, Big Little Lies), Jessica Frances Dukes (Ozark, Jessica Jones), Jason Butler Harner (Ozark, Changeling), Hal Linden (Barney Miller, Broadway’s The Rothschilds), Jillian Mercado (The L Word), Richard Kind (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Inside Out), and Kara Wang (Good Trouble, Top Gun: Maverick).


“Championing challenging, exciting new work during this pandemic has been my chief mission,” says Harris, of the production. “Torrey Townsend’s Off Broadway is a brilliant satire that dares to ask questions of a community that, though attempting, still has a long way to go. Knowing that arguably our country’s best satirist is directing the piece made this the most exciting piece to put my energy behind this year.”

Off Broadway is streaming now through June 27 on Broadstream Media.
