In 1999, Barefoot Theatre Company was founded by a multicultural group of artists determined to produce vital, thought-provoking works, both new and existing. We embrace the importance of the collaborative process, nurture our ensemble commitment, and continue to learn from the younger generations we mentor. Barefoot Theatre Company's most recent collaborations include the Off Broadway Revival of Pintauro's Raft Of The Medusa as well as a workshop of the new play, F**KING VIGWAN (OR SWAG) by Pulitzer Prize nominee Kristoffer Diaz both at the legendary Cherry Lane Theatre.
