WHAT WE DO

The Parnes Office operates on one simple philosophy: “we want to do meaningful work we believe in, and have fun doing it, with people we like who share our passion.” Joey and his colleagues produce, executive produce, and general manage theatrical productions from the commercial and non-profit worlds, both on and off Broadway, internationally and on the road. They seek out unique material to develop for Broadway and often work with non-profits to transfer commercial projects to a broader audience. Theater is nothing if not a labor of love, and the people at The Parnes Office bring creativity and heart to every project they undertake. Plus they throw really great parties!
