Baby Barredo on Bibot Amador: ‘It was a platonic relationship’

By
BABY Barredo (with Pinky Amador in a scene from “August: Osage County”): “We stuck to

The lion’s share of the praise goes to Baby Barredo, the company’s cofounder, artistic director and now the play’s main performer after an absence of more than a decade. Barredo remains at the top of her game at 72—an age she is not ashamed to admit.
