We are proud to announce our 2011-2012 Season beginning this FALL at the legendary CHERRY LANE THEATRE. As a young company made up of Actors, Directors and Playwrights, we couldn't feel more proud to return to the Cherry Lane under the leadership of Angelina Fiordellisi.
This season begins with a collaboration with emerging production company, East 3rd Productions (Ricardo Riethmuller, Artistic Director; Lorraine Rodriguez, Managing Director (Barefoot Ensemble Member); and Michael Mallard, Creative Director). We team up this Oct, Nov and Dec to bring you a variety of new works, a revised / highly controversial play, and many workshops. During our 9 week, yes 9 week!, residency at The Cherry Lane Theatre, we will make it a point to bring you the most affordable, high quality work we've been known for. Special performances will be presented at an Admission Price lower than the cost of a Movie as well as a PAY WHAT YOU CAN opportunities.

RAFT OF THE MEDUSAdirected by Francisco Solorzano+
"RAFT OF THE MEDUSA is a microcosmic crisis clinic, airing aspects of a tradgedy and entreating the audience into acts of empathy." MEL GUSSOW, NEW YORK TIMES.
"Pintauro's dialogue is propulsive, humorous and blistering.... gives only the appearance of being raw. On the inside, it's tuned like a clock." LOS ANGELES TIMES.
"Raft" grabs, holds and harrows. Unquestionably hits home and hits hard. Emphatically worth seeing." CLIVE BARNES, NEW YORK POST.
