The Origins of Broadway
Join PWP artistic director Ralph Lewis and New York Adventure Club as we explore the evolution of New York's theater industry through the mid 1800s, and the actors, production managers, and playwrights who helped pave the way for modern-day Broadway to rise.

Our Mission

Peculiar Works Project was founded by Ralph Lewis, Catherine Porter and Barry Rowell to create original performances that are accessible and engaging for diverse audiences. Using various artistic disciplines in unique combinations, we challenge the conventions and clichés of alternative theater. From initial concept to full production, PWP encourages collaboration, experimentation and a rebel spirit in creative artists by providing the tools and opportunities to realize their artistic goals.
