A brand-new work of theatrical genius. We are raising funds to help produce and market the premiere performance of this show.
Blue Venice is a high-flown fantasy about a young man who is kidnapped and thrust into the delirious and shadowy world of Blue Venice. This hallucinatory adventure boasts a full score of original live music, elaborate and surreal eye candy and an all-expense-paid journey through the seven stages of grief.
Production Expenses - event insurance, theater rental, advertising, professional audio and sound technicians to run the show
Creative Expenses - costume and set building supplies, seven wigs, and rehearsal space
Media Expenses - video documentation of parts of the creative process for the project and of the actual show.
