About this project

TIME IS RUNNING OUT to help us take THE DEVIL AND DAISY JANE, a new rock musical to the stage!  Check out our NEW VIDEO for a close and personal look at the producers of the show, Lisa and Gina, as well as information on HOW YOU CAN HELP the development of a brand new, original show!

WHAT IS THE DEVIL AND DAISY JANE?  A Faustian pop/rock musical comedy for all ages, there's never been a better time for a show that pokes delicious fun at pop stars, entertainment news reporters, and reality television, all the while asking "where's the heart in it all?" And we guarantee you'll walk out humming the tunes!

In the current theatrical climate where the "Jukebox Musical" is king, original material has taken a backseat and new shows have to fight harder than ever to get their work to the stage. But we believe that with good material, persistence and hard work - it can be done.

With your generous donation, The Devil and Daisy Jane will have it's first staged workshop presentation in Hollywood, CA at The Terrace Theater at The Actors Co-Op on August 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 11th, 12th, 13th and 14th, 2011!

Having recently been accepted into the summer 2011 Festival of New American Musicals in Los Angeles, we are fund-raising to create a fully realized production with costumes, sets, lights, and top-quality sound.

THE BOTTOM LINE: The buzz has already begun, and feedback from our latest staged reading in January of 2011 was overwhelmingly positive. Comments included "Love it!", "Amazingly talented cast!", "Can't wait to see it as a full production!" and "See you in New York!" We are confident that The Devil and Daisy Jane will sell thousands of tickets and live on in theater history for a very long time, but we need your help to get the ball rolling!

WHAT CAN YOUR DONATIONS DO, EXACTLY? Your donations will be used for sets, lights, sound, actors, costumes, etc. It takes a village to put on a musical, and our goal is to hire a great team and stage a full Equity 99-seat production.

For example, $2,000 would cover hiring Equity actors for a 6 week run at a 99-seat Theater in Los Angeles. $5000 would allow us to hire a ROCKING 5-piece band and a fantastic sound designer to turn the theater into a true rock-concert experience. $600 would cover our costume budget. $1000 would help us build the set and incorporate digital media and TV screens. And since there is an interactive/audience participation aspect to the show, $500 would make sure everyone's voice would be heard by instant text messaging from members of the 'studio' audience!

Every little bit helps - check out our rewards, and find out how your donation can land you everything from a personal phone call "old-school rap" from disgruntled back-up singer "Shalisa" to drinks and appetizers with our creative team! And if you have a company or brand that you want to promote - we can even work in your product or company and shoot a special commercial and include it in every performance during our run!

Thank you so much for your help, and we look forward to seeing you at the show this summer!
