About Raw Street

Our Mission

Here at Raw Street Productions, we pride ourselves on creative with love. No matter the message, we operate from a place of friendship, laughter, and openness. We jumped into this game brand new – RAW, if you will – with one universal idea that resonated with everyone at our company:

Why can’t we? Why not us? Why can’t this group of young, passionate artists just decide that they can do this?

So we’re here, in your face, to break the rules, to say things, to be a part of the evolution of theatre. To be raw, real and beautiful in the name of art.

Our Company

The Playwright

Gianna Lozzi has been in the service industry for 10 years and has been studying theatre for even longer. She was born and raised in Philadelphia, a thriving platform for both the restaurant industry and the arts. She has combined personal life experiences from both of these worlds to create her play, Right Behind. This will be Right Behind’s third run, and our theatre company’s first time performing outside of our home theatre, Connie’s Ric Rac. Lozzi and her brother Freddie intend to continue working as a playwright/director duo, building upon their new production company Raw Street Productions.

The Director

Freddie Lozzi has been studying and working on film sets for 5 years. Right Behind’s first run was his directorial debut in theatre. Also born and raised in South Philly, Freddie combines this culture like no other with his passion for art in directing this short comedy about the restaurant industry. As co-founder of Raw Street productions, Freddie is at the helm of several upcoming projects and performances.

The Other Guy

Ron Bauman, as a partner in Raw Street Productions, oversees all aspects of marketing and promotion for our events, as well as managing various business matters and helping to guide the strategic direction of Raw Street. And of course, does participate in the creative end as well, consulting on content and performing. Ron’s background is in sales and marketing and is currently the CEO of Milk Street Marketing and a partner at South Philly music venue (our home!), Connie’s Ric Rac.

Keep in Touch

The South Philly misfits who brought you Right Behind started their own company and are here to make raw, hilarious, in your face Theatre.

With Right Behind, in 2016, we knew that we had something special. However, that could not prepare us for the amazing audiences we were able to get come out for not only one – but THREE runs of our original show. With that kind of momentum, we are excited for 2018 Season. Please sign up for our newsletter and we’ll let you know about the next event!
