"Broadway World" featured Pace University's Actors Studio Drama School professor Kate T. Billingsley in "Modern Farce BAREFOOT Extends Through March 2"

After fantastic audience and critical response, BAREFOOT, a daring new sexual escapade by Kate T. Billingsley and Thomas G. Waites, will extend through March 2 at the Gene Frankel Theatre when it began performances on January 24. BAREFOOT is produced by Black Rose Productions and directed by Thomas G. Waites (Awake and Sing! with Frances McDormand, Al Pacino's King Richard III).

Two weeks before her wedding, Sylvia is confronted in her opulent, West Village apartment by her fiancé's sexually confident mistress, Teddy. As their respective male partners arrive, the four charged lovers (and a pizza man) clash over love, lust, and intimacy in a comical prism of betrayal and psychological warfare.

BAREFOOT features Kate T. Billingsley, Elissa Klie, Judah Tobias, Will Rosenfelt, and Trent Cox with a production team that includes Thomas Gordon (sound design, stage manager), Alex Haney (set and props), Roger Cacchiotti (producer) and Gilbert "Lucky" Pearto (lighting).

Kate T. Billingsley is an actress and playwright based in New York City. She received her B.A. from Emerson College with a major in Acting, along with her M.F.A. from The Actors Studio Drama School at Pace University, where she is now a professor of Improvisational Movement and Basic Acting Technique. Kate is a Lifetime Member of The Actors Studio and a recipient of the Theater Hall of Fame's 2018 Emerging Artist Fellowship. Kate's playwriting credits include: Bernadette and Sandy (The Collective: Staged Play Reading Series), A Man of His Time (developed at The Actors Studio), Mint Julep (Emerson College), The Living Room, American Rot and now, Barefoot. Her play, A Man of His Time, based on the legacy of the Dred Scott Decision, is currently being expanded into a full-length play. The short can be heard on Playing On Air, a radio podcast program; the episode featuring A Man of His Time was directed by Estelle Parsons and stars Sam Waterston and John Douglas Thompson.
