The new play Hit the Wall celebrated its opening night off-Broadway at the Barrow Street Theatre on Sunday, March 10, 2013. Directed by Eric Hoff and written by Ike Holter, the play originated at Steppenwolf before transferring to New York.
Set on June 28, 1969, Hit the Wall follows a group of unlikely revolutionaries in the early hours of the police riot on The Stonewall Inn, the underground gay bar in the heart of Greenwich Village. The Barrow Street Theatre is located just steps away from Stonewall, which is still open for business.
The creative team includes Dan Lipton (original music), Lauren Helpern (scenic design), David Hyman (costume design), Keith Parham (lighting design), Daniel Kluger and Brandon Wolcott (sound design), and J. David Brimmer (fight director).
Guests included Abigail Breslin (the upcoming August: Osage County film), Tracy Letts (Bug), Carrie Coon (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?), Mare Winningham (Tribes), David Cromer (Our Town), and more.
