Please help Hoi Polloi create the first-ever staging of the John Cassavetes film Shadows, Oct. 20 - Nov. 12 at The Collapsable Hole in Brooklyn.  We are so thrilled to have secured the rights to premiere the stage version of this collaboratively-created film, considered a watershed in the birth of American independent cinema. Originally released in 1959, the film depicts lean and hungry artists during the Beat Generation years in New York City.  Our production, helmed by Alec Duffy, features a host of Off-Off Broadway heavies, with music by Rick Burkhardt of The Nonsense Company, and a cast that includes Duane Boutte, Jason Craig, Paola Di Tolla, Duffy, Dustin Fontaine, Jessica Jelliffe, Mikeah Ernest Jennings and Julian Rozzell, Jr.  The set design is by Andreea Mincic, costumes by Becky Lasky and lighting by Stephen Arnold.  Musicians include Steven Leffue and Ezra Gale.  We need help to pay for rental of the theater space, to transport set pieces, to pay for the rights and to get our hands on props and costumes.  Any size contribution will help!
