I'm a Colorado kid creating in NYC!
On my way to being a NYC based artist, I studied a little at the Lucid Body House, Stella Adler Studios, and the Guildhall School in London, and I studied a lot at Princeton University '17.
I'm an actor who enjoys performing in pre-existing stories as much as I do making my own, so you'll see a mix of stage/screen acting, as well as stage/screenwriting on my site.
My favorite credits are playing Macbeth in Macbeth and Trigórin in The Seagull at Princeton, as well as writing/directing [Work in Progress], a full-length play exploring love and our agency in creating it.
I received the Tim Vasen Award for dedication, passion, risk taking and exceptional accomplishment in theater as an undergraduate, as well as the Alan S. Downer Award for an exceptional senior thesis in Drama.
How do you think Hamlet felt about the ending of his play? If he had a chance to talk things out with Will, how do you think that conversation would go? When both character and author have agency over how the story is told, do you think they both become characters or do they both become authors?
[Work in Progress] is a metafictional play that deals with questions of heartache, fate, and love. Artie, a screenwriter, and Allen, his character, find themselves at odds in how they think their story should end. Allen will do everything he can to change the fate that's been written for him, and Artie will try to stop him because that's not how it happened. What neither of them realize is that it's not up to them; it's up to the woman they both love.

"Ross Barron's play, '[Work in Progress]', is a funny, touching, clever, and deeply theatrical exploration of creativity, autonomy, and romance."
- R.N. Sandberg and Stacy Wolf, Lecturer and Professor at Princeton University

"In addition to being a most dedicated artist, he is a quiet leader and encourages others to stretch and grow... He is smart without pretension, assertive with grace, modest without bashfulness, and has the capability to achieve transformative creative expression."
"Ross was a terrific collaborator, a company leader, the kind of performer who raises the bar for everyone he is working with through his dedication, work ethic, and infectious good humor."
"Kudos to Ross Barron (Messenger) for bounding down the stairs with action-villain energy. Don't break a leg!"

"Not only was he a great guy, but he was very professional and supportive on set. I look forward to working with him again."
Review of Spider's Web
"Ross Barron, a Princeton graduate who has already studied theater at Stella Adler in this country and Guildhall School in London, handles the trick role of the inspector with great authority, completely commanding several scenes."
Review of Spider's Web
"Barron and Milla have the challenge of being two completely different characters. They're convincing enough that I wasn't sure they weren't different actors."
