I’ve written a number of times on this blog about the musical drama I’m writing about Terezín, the Czech ghetto the Nazis used as a propaganda tool during the Second World War.
Well, we have an actual off-Broadway production planned, opening in May. Like, an actual New York production, with actual actors and an actual set and, one hopes, an actual audience.
The problem is, of course, that it’s going to require actual money. Like, somewhere between $500,000 and $700,000. The theater we’re working with is going to put up as much of that money as it can, but given the Late Unpleasantness I figured they can use all the help they can get.
So with the help of this lovely goddess I’ve set up a website at terezinsings.org. If you don’t mind, I’d like to ask you to stop by and consider 1) making a small donation and 2) using the “tell your friends” option to forward the URL to friends and family you think might also be interested in making donations. The more help we can get, the better our chances of making this actually happen.
Thank you. And wish me luck.
Good luck. I’m planning a trip to NYC for springtime next year, so I may actually get to come see your work??? I am stoked!
I posted the link as my facebook status. Hopefully my 95% Jewish friends list will bite.
Wishing you more than luck, mate! Plus I will be back in NYC the first two weeks of May – hope you will have opened by then and you can save me a seat!
due to The Troubles, we are so broke we might have to sell our home (no doubt at a loss), so i’m afraid i can’t help. for once. sorry babe.
