The Archive Residency, a collaboration between New Ohio Theatre and IRT Theater (likeminded neighbors in the historic Archive Building in the West Village), is a unique incubator for the country's most promising emerging independent theater companies. This two-year residency offers each company that most elusive and invaluable resource, an artistic home, including space, artistic support, and institutional continuity for the development and presentation of a new work, culminating in an exciting world premiere.
Vampire Cowboys, one of the companies completing their residency this year, presents the World Premiere of Six Rounds Of Vengeance, written by Qui Nguyen and directed by Robert Ross Parker, running April 24 - May 16, 2015. Previews begin April 24 for an April 25 opening. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

However, the gang they''ll be going against has powers that go way beyond just gunpowder and steel. To get revenge, they may have to become just as blood-thirsty as the monsters they''re facing. The cast includes Sheldon Best, Jamie Dunn, Jon Hoche, Tom Myers and Nicky Schmidlein. The production team includes Qui Nguyen (Fight Choreography), Nick Francone (Set & Lighting Design), Kristina Makowski (Costume Design), Shane Rettig (Original Music & Sound Design), Matthew Tennie (Video Design), David Valentine (Puppet Design) and Jeanne E. Travis (Production Stage Manager).
