San Francisco Magazine: By supporting a bunch of small, unconventional projects while they’re still in the crazy-idea stage, the Rep keeps the creative juices going—and its theatrical pipeline flowing. San Francisco Chronicle: It’s enough to make you want to be not one but a dozen flies on various walls. John Leguizamo: I had a breakthrough experience at The Ground Floor! Broadway World: The Ground Floor is a bold new initiative designed to raise the bar on the Tony Award-winning nonprofit’s already successful record of artictic innovation.
