Teri Black Founder/Artistic Director of BAL - Break A Leg Productions
On February 22, before COVID hit, we had a sold-out smash hit performance of the play “This Senseless Killing” by John Wolfson at the Theatre Lab on West 36th Street. Then came the lockdown and all our projects had to be postponed. BAL swung into immediate action by changing our performance mode and making modifications to our operation.Thankfully, our switch from live to virtual sparked, energized extended and inspired our creativity!
BAL’s Literary Committee is meeting more frequently and having more table reads of new plays via Zoom. In September, we produced our first and very successful video, “Sneak Peek,” comprised of parts of several plays of our upcoming annual SLAM one act play competition. In December, BAL launched a news series: “Break A Leg Briefings,” taped conversations with personalities from the theater world and beyond. Our first guest was the award winning playwright Lauren Gunderson. Lauren was the most produced American playwright in 2017 and 2019. Upcoming and also new in February 2021 is BAL’s “5X5 Love Festival” of short romantic comedies. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, they will be shown throughout the month of February, streamed on BAL’s website and via social media.
We are so grateful that BAL has not only survived but thrived!

October 29, 2020 Teri's acting goes beyond the theater as she works with med students as a Stanardized Patient and with law students in Mediation Simulations. Most recently in October 2020 for NYU Law School: Hi Teri,
This is a belated but genuine thank you for participating in our NYU mediation simulations last Wednesday night. The energy and acting ability you brought to the roles is always fun to watch, and the experience for the students, who are learning to be facilitative mediators, is challenging but terrific.
Thanks again and be well

I wanted to thank you for your talent and professionalism. Triboro Pictures were very pleased with Bloodlines, especially the cast. And I happily forwarded contact info for the cast to their team. It was a lot of work playing multiple characters and at such short notice--you were so natural, grounded & distinctly different--I would imagine you would be wonderful in comedy. Danielle, director
You were a great narrator -- clear, crisp and articulate. Thanks
By the way, I've never told you how real and natural your acting is which is why Adam and I have kept you close to us all along. And you're a true professional and a good team member. Thank you.
Barbara Masry, playwright, film maker "A Wake Up Call", screen writer, member of Women in Film and Television
