Early Life / Career
Barrett Foa was a simple man born on September 18, 1977, and raised ever since in Manhattan, New York.

Back to Barrett’s life, he entered Dalton School, which is known to be a prestigious school in New York City for his high school. During this period, Barrett had begun to develop an interest in musicals and arts, pertaining to the theatre as a ‘non-sport & fun distraction.’ That distraction became something more as time went on, something that he would pursue and create a career from.
While studying in Dalton, Barrett was already eager to learn more and expand his skills in theatre, which made him enroll in Interlochen Center for Arts, a prestigious school for those who want to experience arts, films, theatre, and the like. He enlisted in the school for four consecutive years, wasting no time in learning. The Interlochen Center was like his second home, surrounded by a group of people to which he shared
“had the same passion as I that no one else had back in my hometown.”
Barrett also said,
“It drove my passion and drive deeper knowing that I’m with weirdos that have the same interest as me.”
Soon after he graduated from Dalton, he continued his pursuit for the theatrical arts; Barrett enrolled at the University of Michigan in Arr Farbor, where he graduated with flying colors from his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts in 1999. After graduating college, he went back to New York and worked to start his acting career.
