Bill W. and Dr. Bob is an emotionally powerful and entertaining play. It's played to sold-out audiences around the country, and now it's making its way to the Soho Playhouse. Written by Stephen Bergman and Janet Surrey and based on a true story, this is the amazing and often amusing account of the two men who pioneered Alcoholics Anonymous. The play artfully illustrates Bill and Bob's journey from the pain and isolation of alcoholism to the hope and inspiration they found in sobriety and helping others. Learn More

Debra Ehrhardt is brilliant. From the moment she first emerges from the darkness she draws you into her journey and doesn't let go, even after the curtain comes down after the show. It's no wonder that all of her shows are SOLD OUT.

About the Ticket Supplier: SoHo PlayhouseUnder the new management of Darren Lee Cole and Faith Mulvihill, the newly renovated SoHo Playhouse continues to serve the downtown theater community as an historic 199 seat Off Broadway venue. The Huron Club below is an intimate 55 seat cabaret and bar steeped in the history of Old New York.
The SoHo Playhouse stands on land that was once Richmond Hill, a colonial mansion that served as headquarters for General George Washington and later home to Aaron Burr. Purchased from Burr in 1817, the land was then developed into federalist-style row houses by fur magnate John Jacob Astor.
15 Van Dam Street, was designated at the Huron Club, a popular meeting house and night club for the Democratic Party. The turn of the century brought the Tammany Hall machine to the Huron Club. Prominent regulars included "Battery" Dan Finn and the infamous Jimmy "Beau James" Walker, known as "The night Mayor" due to his predilection for jazz clubs and chorus girls.
The main floor was transformed into a theater in the 1920's, and in the 60's operated as the Village South, home to Playwrights Unit Workshop under the direction of Edward Albee. It was on this stage that Mr. Albee produced many first works of Terrance Mcnally, John Guare, Lanford Wilson, Sam Shephard, AR Gurney and Leroi Jones.
