Hi friends and fans!
Like many other performing artists, I've been creating some online content
to inspire myself and others during these difficult times.
Here are two videos from my series "Songs from Home," which includes original piano/vocal music and covers.

Barrie's full-length play A Thousand Shapes was a
semifinalist for the 2020 Bay Area Playwrights Festival.
Though it didn't proceed to the final round, it was among
just 18% of submitted plays chosen for the semifinals.
A Thousand Shapes was also among
the 8% of submitted plays chosen as semifinalists
for the 2020 Ashland New Plays Festival.
Many thanks to both organizations for this honor.
Barrie wrote and starred in Episode 3.03 of the popular weekly web series Love in NY. 
"Benched" finds cynical New Yorker Jane awaiting a first date in the frozen tundra of a Manhattan January.
On January 6th, the Bechdel Project
presented a staged reading of Barrie's play,
In Love with Night, about the life and loves of legendary theatre artist Eva Le Gallienne.
Barrie played the role of Eva alongside a talented cast led by director Trey Coates-Mitchell.
