Rehearsals for Hurt Village have started people and so far, so good...excellent cast, incredible script, full of tears and lots of laughter. Plus lots and lots of cussing. Who could ask for anything more?
If you stiil have ANY ducats in your coffer, please donate to this excellent cause. Although I have already reached my personal goal, we still have a ways to go before we reach the overall goal.
Signature Theater is building the largest new theater complex built in NY since Lincoln Center. It’s a project that cost nearly $75 million to build and the last few million still has to be raised before the Opening in late January of 2012.
(Check out the video to the left.)
There are over 1,200 of us who call ourselves Signature Alumni so if we all reach our goal it would be a huge contribution toward showing that artists can join together to make magic happen and have an impact on the world above and beyond the stories we weave on the stage.
Thanks SO much for visiting my page. Give a little, give a lot. The minimum is $10.
Why should you feel great about supporting this effort? I mean, other than feeling like a superstar for contributing to the arts in any way, shape, or form?
Signature Theater is unique for two very important reasons:
It’s the only theater in America that devotes a full season to one playwright each year. You can go hear a Mozart festival, you can see a Scorcese film series, see retrospectives of Picasso’s work across time, but there was no way to experience the whole landscape of a playwright’s work until Signature.
And Signature is truly ‘theater for everyone’. Signature’s commitment that every seat for every show will be $25 for the next 10 years, is a bold and inspiring commitment to making the magic of theater affordable to all.
I will say this, when I work at the Signature, it's the only time I get NO calls for discount tickets, because the tickets are already offered at such an amazing discount. It is GREAT theatre for a very fair price, and that I can definitely get behind. Hope you will too.
