MISSION/VISION

When actress Teri Black broke her leg, she couldn’t even audition for “The Man Who Came to Dinner.” To keep her creative juices flowing, she began readings of plays in her apartment and Break A Leg Productions was born.

We believe in theatre as an invaluable tool illuminating what all people, no matter one’s origin, life experience, spiritual, sexual or cultural identification, have in common.  Through humor, historical drama, science and social criticism, BAL aims to bridge the gap that separates people by enabling audiences to recognize and even laugh at the obstacles that divide them.

BAL offers an ever expanding variety of programs including “Delicious Comedy” and “Unexplored Territory” (new, unpublished works) reading series, “Historically Speaking” (plays based on real life historical events and figures) and both readings and full productions of science themed plays as part of “The Art Of Science” series. BAL encourages non-traditional casting.

The generosity of our patrons helps make it possible to continue the development and production of Comedies and Science Plays. We would graciously accept any contribution you could make; and if your company or organization has a Matching Gift program please let us know. Tax-deductible donations may be sent to:
