Ars Nova | New York, NY


Dubbed by The New York Times as a “fertile incubator of offbeat theater,” Ars Nova provides artists a testing ground for new ideas and is designed to support early career directors.

Ars Nova said, “Cowboy Bob is the killer new musical from the creative minds of Molly Beach Murphy, Jeanna Phillips and our very own director-in-residence, Annie Tippe. It rocked to a sold out house and we hope you’ll come give the waitlist a try so you don’t miss your chance to see it!”
