Meg n' Sasch send their bad-ass play about women in their 20's to New York Cit-TAY for some 2012 Fringe ridonk-a-donk. Get on the bus!!
NAKED AND CRAZY: True Stories by Meghan Gambling and Sascha Alexander, has been accepted into the New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC), the most prestigious theater festival in the US!
Accepting only 20% of those that apply the festival is held in Manhattan and showcases 200 productions from around the world. This festival has launched such shows as Broadway's Tony-winning musical "Urinetown," Mindy Kaling's "Matt and Ben," and the recent LA hit "Jersey Shoresical." Now all Meghan and Sascha need to become the next big thing out of the Fringe is $3500 to make it there.
Naked and Whaaaaaa...?
“I am still blown away. I am still in awe... See it. And if it is sold out... DEMAND an extension. This absolutely can not be missed.” - Lira Kellerman
Sascha falls so in love with her body that she can’t stop taking her clothes off in public; Meghan sings about losing her virginity to her bicycle when she’s 11. Welcome to the world of NAKED AND CRAZY, a double bill of solo shows and a slice of entertainment about our lives that touches on the confusing, humiliating, and complicated experience of being female. Through jokes, songs, dance, and pole tricks, NAKED AND CRAZY details the pitfalls and prizes of relationships and family, and how to fight the ubiquitous feeling that – even when you are blessed with so much --- you never quite measure up.
A collaboration between writer/performers Sascha Alexander and Meghan Gambling, the show premiered in August of 2011 and ran for 5 sold out performances at the Elephant Studio space in Los Angeles. After months of rewrites, pole-bruises, photo-shoots, rehearsals, and tears, Meg and Sasch were thrilled! The reviews were amazing!
"...truthful, commanding... poignant and hilarious..." - Comediva.com
"I am speechless." – Jonathan Dillon
"I laughed and cried and just loved every moment." - Michanne Quinney
"I was absolutely moved. – Kurt Ela
"You murdered it, wrapped it up in a little ball and dry humped it. Way to go. I never dated a rock star before." - Jason Carmody
So they extended their RUN!
...And they sold those out, too.
So the girls decided to apply for the New York Fringe, the largest multi-arts festival in North America, so they could perform alongside more than 200 other companies from all over the world and take their stories even farther.
And two months ago, they got in.
They leave in EIGHT WEEKS.
IF they can raise the cash.
"...so vulnerable, beautiful and courageous-- this show is exactly why fearless actors like you are so vital to society... Thank you, thank you thank you." - Gwen Davis
WHY SHOULD I GIVE?
NAKED AND CRAZY tells stories that don't always get told. Meghan’s show focuses on her often deviant experiences growing up in the southeast and Sascha’s focuses on her struggle with body image. Both offer raw glimpses into struggles that are often silenced, trivialized, or just not mined for their great humor. Giving to NAKED AND CRAZY is giving to a piece of theater that breaks down some of those walls.
NAKED AND CRAZY features young, new voices! Giving to the show is also a way to support grassroots art and innovative artistic voices in LA, a place where money and fame often dictate which stories get told and which don't.
NAKED AND CRAZY has huge potential for growth! There has massive interest in this project since it's inception. From extended festival runs, to movie offers, to adaptations, to tours, there are a number of artists, production companies, and potential investors who have already expressed interest in pushing this production into the future on multiple platforms. Investment now is joining a project with momentum and legs. We don't know yet how big this project could become! How exciting!! With your help, we can discover that together!
And finally...NAKED AND CRAZY moves people! Its relevant, edgy, and inspiring. It's about the things we love, the things that scare us, and the things that make us laugh. It connects audiences to themselves and each other. The community and the fan-base surrounding NAKED AND CRAZY has been so freaking amazing... we know we're onto something here!! Come be a part of this ever-growing community!
