“Co-Op Theatre East’s immersive production leaves me wanting more” – Playbill.com, Carey Purcell, 2014


Co-Op Theatre East (COTE) was founded in April 2008 by Casey Cleverly, Robert A. K. Gonyo, and Ashley Marinaccio. COTE was formed to create theatre that actively works to challenge the status quo and create lasting social change. COTE believes in the power of art of foster dialogue for social change. COTE provides an entertaining performance forum in which to ask evocative, challenging questions of artists and audiences on their way to creating collaborative answers. Cleverly, Gonyo, and Marinaccio all graduated from the Performance Studies graduate program at New York University, Tisch School of the Arts.
