The Barrow Group Theatre Company will present a one-night-only benefit performance of the Obie Award-winning solo play The Tricky Part next month.
Written and performed by Martin Moran and directed by Seth Barrish, the performance will be held October 16 at TBG Theatre (312 West 36th Street, 3rd Floor).
“The Tricky Part is simply extraordinary and if you haven’t seen it I dearly hope you can take advantage of this rare opportunity—you are in for a treat," said Co-Artistic Director Lee Brock in a statement.
“We're thrilled to revive this groundbreaking piece of theatre for New York audience members—it's ultimately a story of acceptance, which we believe is so important in these times,” added Executive Director Robert Serrell.
The Tricky Part was originally developed at The Barrow Group. Following its premiere in 2004, The Tricky Part received a 2004 Obie Award, two Drama Desk Award nominations (Outstanding Play and Outstanding Solo Performance), an Outer Critics Circle Award nomination (Outstanding Solo Performance), and a GLAAD Media Award Nomination (Outstanding NY Theater: Broadway and Off-Broadway).
Moran's Broadway and Off-Broadway performances include Spamalot, Cabaret, Titanic, Bells Are Ringing, How To Succeed…, Big River, Fun Home (Public Theater), Floyd Collins (Playwrights Horizons), A Man of No Importance (Lincoln Center Theater), and Cider House Rules and John Guare’s Three Kinds of Exile at The Atlantic Theater Company.
