Broadway Bound Theatre Festival
New York, NY 10003
Broadway Bound Theatre Festival 2018 Accepting Submissions
Broadway Bound Theatre Festival, the only playwright-centric, curated theatre festival in NYC, returns for a second year!
BBTF is dedicated to creating a new brand of empowered playwrights, knowledgeable of the business side of the industry and ready to move one step closer to creating commercially successful theatre for the bigger stage. Writers chosen to participate will see their new plays performed at least three times and will receive support from festival organizers, from promotion to critiques by a panel of playwrights and other theater professionals, as well as networking opportunities.
Submissions are now open! Applications are due by Feb. 1, 2018 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Discounted participation fees available for those who get their submissions in early. Visit the website for eligibility, more information, and to find out about our Box Office Split: www.broadwayboundfestival.com.
We created BBTF as a festival in the truest spirit of that word. Veering away from the standard competition format, which pits playwright-against-playwright, BBTF fosters an environment of support and friendship, from the festival staff to the panelists, as well as cultivating the spirit of cooperation between participants by encouraging them to work for and with each other.
Collaboration is one of our cornerstones. Once accepted into BBTF, playwrights become part of something much bigger than just themselves and their plays. They are provided with multiple workshops, regular educational packets, an interactive online playwrights forum, as well as roundtable talkbacks discussing their shows. All of this creates a constructive, encouraging environment between fellow playwrights and a creative community accepting of all, exclusive of none.
We are most proud of the support we at BBTF give our playwrights. We are one of the only festivals that does not put its stamp on productions as they continue on after the festival. BBTF neither requires any acknowledgement of its festival in future productions, nor does it take a percentage of any future revenues or require the distribution of producer points, or instigate negotiations for credit should any participating production be approached with financial interest during or after the festival.
