About

The Best Thing Ever (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Best_Thing_Ever) is mounting their most ambitious project out of a career of ambitious projects. 

How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Donate!

If we make enough, we'll rent out one of the rooms in Carnegie Hall and have the biggest and best singalong of our (and your) lives. Our set will be very easy-to-learn sing-alongs (many of our best songs) and will sound amazing with you in our huge choir (think of The Messiah sing-along, but without the religious overtones). 

This is a dream for us and we hope you'll come share it!

Those who donate the most will be able to sing with The Best Thing Ever ON STAGE (don't be afraid, there'll be so many of you that one person singing offkey won't be noticed).

If we make $5360, we will book The Weill Recital Hall (capacity 268)

If we make $15,000, we will book the 599-capacity Zankel Hall and do our best to cram anyone who doesn't fit in the seats onstage.

If we make $30,000, we book the largest venue, The Stern Perelman Auditorium, capacity 2,804. This is our real goal, so please keep donating if we reach the $5360 minimum. Also, don't be afraid if we get more than 2,804 backers, we have plenty of room on stage.

The date of the show is obviously TBA, but we'll try to work it out with everyone who's donated.

Risks and challenges

Unions require us to hire specific people to run lights and sound, and the US government will take taxes out of what we get, but they won't tell us the exact cost until we've rented, so this could end up costing more than we expect. If it does, we'll pay the balance.

We're not making ANY profit on this show, any money above $30,000 will be used to make the show even better, whether with special celebrity guests or a beautiful backdrop.
We love you.

  1. Select this reward

    Pledge $20 or more About $20

    Free seat to the show! And you get to sing along (from the audience). It'll be all singalongs. This might be your only chance to go to Carnegie Hall for only $20. We've limited the quantity in case we only make enough to book the smallest room, but if we get enough to book one of the two largest rooms we'll have you come sing in the audience, there, too!
