Friedman

Producer

When the pandemic shut her 18 productions and halted progress on her 25 shows in development, Friedman found ways to bring theater to the audience. Dennis Kelly’s COVID-19 lockdown dramedy “Together,” written for the stage, was reconceived as TV movie starring James McAvoy and Sharon Horgan, while her successful West End production of “Uncle Vanya” was filmed in an empty theater for worldwide theatrical release. She took a fresh look at existing hits such as “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” which was radically reshaped for its Broadway return. Post-lockdown, she offered a trio of new topical works on the West End to socially distanced audiences: Amy Berryman’s eco-sci-fi drama “Walden,” Yasmin Joseph’s celebration of Black British carnival “J’Ouvert” and Joseph Charlton’s fraud thriller “Anna X.”
