Via Brooklyn is an award-winning 501(c)3 not-for-profit theatre company that develops theatrical productions, coupled with interactive programming, to engage audiences around the world. Our mission is to foster enthusiasm, contemplation, and community by blurring the traditional lines between stage, canvas, camera, music, page, and everything in between. We believe the synergy of artistic media can create visionary live theatre experiences.

Via Brooklyn has produced shows at venues such as 59E59, The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Rochester Fringe Festival, The Wallace Collection in London, and the Southampton Cultural Center in Southampton, NY. Our most recent production, “Testament”, won 5 BroadwayWorld Off-Broadway Awards. For more information on our company please visit: www.viabrooklyn.org.


“Iron Anthology” will be a series of three, 30-60 minute audio plays (one of which has already been commissioned) that will each be split into three parts for release on all major podcast platforms this Halloween 2022.
