bareNaked Reading Series 2015-2016

Now that Submissions are officially closed and we've spent several months reading the wonderful plays submitted - Barefoot Theatre Company will finally be announcing the official selection for the 2015-2016 bareNaked Reading Series this Fall.  We are proud to be presenting new, unproduced plays that are ready for an audience. Barefoot plays offer a multicultural perspective and are truthful, raw and entertaining. Since its founding in 1999, Barefoot has produced over 75 productions, workshops, and readings, with collaborations from some of the world's most esteemed actors, directors, and artists.

The bareNaked Reading Series has taken place monthly at the West Beth Artists Community in the West Village for the past couple years as well as at the Art Of Acting Studio in Los Angeles, CA. The event includes live music, free drinks, and a professional presentation of the play directed by a notable director and performed by the Barefoot Ensemble and special guests.   Keep an eye out for plays from last season's readings to come back this year as workshops and full productions!!!  We will also be announcing our new Literary Team & Producers - most recently introduced Shira-Lee Shalit as our Associate Artistic Director and we couldn't be more thrilled about the news...

Previous series collaborators include Adam Szymkowicz, Kristoffer Diaz, Israel Horovitz, Greg Paul, Mariah MacCarthy, Ben Snyder, Amina Henry, Mike Reiss, Richard Kind, Anna Chlumsky, Lynn Cohen, Colbie Minifie, Hilary Bettis, Mel Nieves, Mando Alvarado, Jose Rivera, Jennifer Skura, Craig 'muMs' Grant, Jesse Eisenberg and Joe Pintauro, among many others.
