Thank you so much for checking out my Kickstarter page for Last Call.
Last Call takes place during one chaotic bar shift. Two worlds collide when our bartender's already needy and quirky customers have to fight for her attention while her unstable and borderline homeless mother barrages her with desperate phone calls. A typical day in a bartender's life is full of snap judgements and snappy comebacks, but as her patience is tried she realizes she must make a choice, or the phone will never stop ringing. It’s about family, it's about boundaries, it's about how much to tip.
To understand why I’m so excited about this project, please watch the above video I made because it will tell you all about the show and the talented people working with me to put it together!
Now that you’ve seen the video… here’s a few other things you might want to know…
Last Call starts rehearsal in Florida on March 12th and the show opens April 13th at Empire Stage in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This theater specializes in offbeat comedies and has a great reputation for supporting alternative and new works. Last Call runs for four weeks, Thursday through Sunday, and closes on May 6th. How awesome is that?!
This is an inspired, enthusiastic and long overdue project for me. I’m super thrilled that this day has finally come! Here is specifically what I need your support for:
•The sound designer in New York- Phil Palazzolo.
•The sound designer in Florida- David Hart
•Graphic designer/illustrator for the logo and posters
•Living espenses in Florida
I’m incredibly grateful for the team collaborating with me (their full bios are on the sidebar):
