We choose projects that scare us.
Through empathy, humor, and bold simplicity, we share stories that embrace the impossibilities of life, love, and art. We foster a community of artists who choose to take risks and, through the work, incite conversation about our world. We want you to be a part of that conversation.
Jenn Haltman and Becca Schneider go way back, having both graduated from Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA. They officially became friends when Becca was Jenn's Casting Intern at New York Theatre Workshop in 2006. After seven years of seeing plays together and post-theatre chats while simultaneously identifying NYC's finest burger, their friendship and mutual admiration deepened, and they decided it was time to make a play together. In November 2013, they began co-producing The Understudy, which went up in May 2014 at The Secret Theater. After that success, they chose to join forces again, this time giving themselves a name, Between Two Boroughs, to represent their respective home bases (Astoria, Queens and Cobble Hill, Brooklyn) and the ever-so-long trek between the two.
Becca is an actor and producer. With Between Two Boroughs, she has played Tessa in Summertime and Roxanne in The Understudy. Other NYC and regional credits include: The Music Man (Sharon Playhouse), A Christmas Carol (Blessed Unrest), Big River (Unquowa Rep), Gruff! the Musical (Doppelskope), Taming of the Shrew (Connecticut Free Shakespeare) for which she also served as Musical Director, Richard III (Facing Page Productions), As You Like It, As I Lay Dying, Three Sisters (Columbia Stages), Cyrano de Bergerac (NTAE Tour), and Psycho Beach Party (Theatre Outlet). A Muhlenberg College graduate, Becca is Managing Director and co-founder of The Fishbowl Collective, a group of NYC artists that serves as a resource for current and future Muhlenberg alumni to network and develop new work. www.becca-schneider.com @beccaschneids
In addition to directing Summertime and The Understudy for Between Two Boroughs, Jenn's credits include Cast and Loose Live! at Joe's Pub and Maybe Never Fell for Axial Theatre Company.

Eric Schaeffer), the award-winning short "Behind the Wall" (dir. Bat-Sheva Guez), and working with theatre companies Sharon Playhouse, Fault Line, and LabRats. Previously, Jenn was the Casting Associate at New York Theatre Workshop (shows include Peter and the Starcatcher, Little Foxes, Aftermath, The Seven) and worked with Page 73 Productions, Pig Iron Theatre Company, and Soho Rep.
