2008: summer at theatre row theatres

This summer included a lot of firsts for the Barefoot Theatre Company with the production of Dog Day Afternoon at Theatre Row Theatres. It was our most attended production with almost every single performance sold-out, most reviewed, and overall successful to date. The production also marked barefoot youngest actor featured on a stage - Mateo Francisco Solorzano at 9 months old appeared on stage as Jimmy opposite Joli Tribuzio for select performances.

In addition, the ensemble found themselves having numerous cast parties and gatherings even after the show closed in late August - taking place at bars, restaurants, and even a pool party at company member Gil Ron's house in Queens, New York.

Stay tuned for a revival of the stage adaptation of Dog Day Afternoon in the near future.
