About this project

Hello!

We're fundraising here at Kickstarter, so that we may workshop my one "man" show,  Secrets of a Holy Father, the week of July 11th with the intent of moving it to a full Off-Broadway production in the Fall.  

Based on a true story, Tina Alexis Allen (actress/playwright/GLAAD Award Nominee) yearns to understand the complicated and highly secretive double life of her father. By transforming herself into him, Allen takes her father's journey in life and the afterlife, submerging into the Universal themes of family betrayal and redemption in a tour-de-force performance from the heart

Developed at the Susan Batson Studio, with acclaimed acting coach, Susan Batson (Nicole Kidman, Tyler Perry, Juliette Binoche, Chris Rock), Secrets of a Holy Father will be presented the week of July 11th, 2011, under the direction of Josh Hecht (Drama Desk Award Winner) and the guidance of several Broadway advisors.

Everything's ready to go!  Rehearsals are in progress!  We have an Off-Broadway theater lined up, a commitment from a top level general manager, award-winning technical designers, and crew.   In order for this project to be fulfilled, we are fundraising for the remaining costs, including: the theater rental, crew, marketing, and legal fees.

With Gratitude,

Tina Alexis Allen and the entire team
