La Femme launched in 2014 as an associate producer of William Inge's lost gem, A Loss of Roses, (featuring Deborah Hedwall and Patricia Hodges), which Terry Teachout called "a triumphant exhumation" and included in the Wall Street Journal's "2014 Best Theater". La Femme then co-produced Clifford Odets's Rocket to the Moon (featuring Katie McClellan, Marilyn Matarrese, Ned Eisenberg, Larry Bull, and Jonathan Hadary - Drama Desk nomination), Ingmar Bergman's Nora, and last season's Off-Broadway hit - Horton Foote's The Traveling Lady(featuring Tony Award nominee Karen Ziemba and Lynn Cohen).
