About this project
It takes a village to raise a child! Madonna Monroe is my baby and while she's been conceived and born, we need YOUR HELP to make her come to life. After working on this musical for the past four years, I am ready to mount a full scale production: SIX weeks in a theatre in LA where we will blow the roof off the joint for 75 minutes, THREE times a week. The World Premiere of Madonna Monroe: One theatre, six actors, live musicians, rented microphones and lights, sets, promotion, stage management, costumes, and wigs are just a few of the essentials this baby needs to get going. With your love, support, guidance, and wisdom watch OUR child grow and flourish in this village we call Hollywood.
Risks and challenges
Theatre is a tricky business. I've been in it for 25 years. Ten years ago I produced my one person show 'The Joe Keane Machine' with my brother. We broke even and I learned a lot. For the past five years I have performed in nine sold out, six week runs of musicals with L.A.'s famed Troubadour Theatre Co. If there is one thing I can take away from all of that hard work, it's the importance of a good story.
The story of Marilyn Monroe has been passed down like a fairy tale and expressed on TV and films for years... But never like this. THIS IS FUNNY. I'm confident that my experience and resources will lend itself to the success of this project. This is my vision. I eat, breathe, and sleep Madonna Monroe.
We just finished two fantastic fundraising performances of Madonna Monroe 1.0.
Once we meet our goal, then we can start looking at theaters in LA for a fully mounted, six week run. Dates and ticket information will be released to the Kickstarters FIRST.
