Theater Husband/Theater Wife Project
YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO THE MARRIAGE OF TWO THEATER ARTISTS!
Erin Mallon and Bixby Elliot met in 2011 and immediately started dating - well - theater dating. It all started rather innocently; sharing work, exploring each other's texts, debriefing...but then things got serious when they launched The Brooklyn Generator (a developmental writing program that supports writers in the creation of full length plays). Over the years their relationship deepened and it was clear to all parties that this wasn't a short term collaboration - so they took the plunge and made it official. There were proposals. There were tricky conversations with real husbands and even children. At some point a Facebook post announced to the world this artistic "matrimony". Now Erin and Bixby are ready to take the next step in their relationship; they are proud to announce the birth of a theatrical endeavor - Theater Husband/Theater Wife Project!
This brand new, bundle of excitement is created to bring the work of Erin and Bixby to life, but who knows where it will take them! They hope you will join them in celebrating this next step in their partnership and come see their new "babies" - brand new plays by Erin and Bixby produced at The Back Room at Jimmys No.43

The Brooklyn Generator is Erin and Bixby's first collaboration. The Brooklyn Generator was originally started by Erin when she began making plays back in 2010 with a rotating group of 6 playwrights and 12 actors who gathered once a month on a Friday night to create six 10-minute plays in less than two days. Erin continued this way for 2 years and they collectively wrote about 140 short plays. Then, after a hiatus, Bixby and Erin put their heads together and asked each other "how can we adapt this model to support the creation of full-length plays?"
Cut to June 2014 when they relaunched The Brooklyn Generator with six great playwrights. The Generator supports each other over a six month period during which each playwright takes a turn being "Playwright-of-the-Month," bringing actors and directors to the table to create brand new full-length plays in less than 30 days.
Here are the writers who have worked with The Brooklyn Generator so far:
Mallery Avidon, Eboni Booth, Ed Cardona Jr., Guadalís Del Carmen, Bixby Elliot, Georgina Escobar, Ken Greller, Amina Henry, Stephen Kaplan, Erin Mallon, Sarah Matusek, Julian J. Mesri, Eric John Meyer, Charlie O'Leary, Noah T. Parnes, Lia Romeo, Stacey Rose, Nandita Shenoy, Diana Stahl, Melisa Tien, Juan Francisco Villa and Nathan Yungerberg
