Barefoot at Brooklyn College
Last year, Barefoot members paid a visit to Brooklyn College to read and workshop a play for visiting High School juniors. It was such a success that this year we were asked back.
On Wednesday, February 3rd, Associate Director Michael LoPorto, Literary Manager Stephen Gracia, and Barefoot actors Kendra Leigh Landon and Dan Graff treated the juniors of the prestigious Brooklyn Latin high school to an open rehearsal of Stephen's original short play "Boondock Brooklyn." The play was read through once, Michael gave notes to the actors, and the play was read through again, giving the students a glimpse into a typical rehearsal process. Once again, it was a hit!
"Boondock Brooklyn" received its first public performance (with a slightly more...provocative title) during the 2nd bareNaked Reading on December 19th 2008. Directed by Michael LoPorto, it featured company members Kendra Leigh Landon and Will Allen.
