THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

The past month has turned out to be so much more than just a fundraising campaign. 

We are more inspired and empowered than ever to build the best theater/club/castle/dreamhouse for making art and having a place to celebrate together. 

We made new friends and collaborators along the way, remembered how to throw parties, and got enough pep talks and moral support to get us through the next few months of getting this place OPENED and beyond!!!!!! 

We can't wait to see the look on your face the first time you set foot into this place and see what YOU helped make happen. 

AND we can't wait to make those 41 unitards, 90 booty shorts, silk screen all those t-shirts, handwrite thank you notes, design the Unlimited Super Fan Membership laminated ID cards, and show up to your place in Goddess garb with a massage table in tow!!! 

One of the biggest things we'll take away from the past month of fundraising is that the hard part is asking for help, and the easy part will be showering all of you amazing supporters with endless gratitude. 

We'll be sending out surveys over the next week to start distributing your rewards and please stay  tuned by getting on our mailing list here: houseofyes.org

-----------------------

We have a new goal!!! $90,000 will help us make the new House of Yes theatre a dream venue for entertainers and audiences alike. 

Thank you to everyone who got us this far. LETS KEEP GOING! 

We signed a 10 year lease on a building in Bushwick for the new House of Yes- a venue that creates culture and community in Brooklyn and beyond.

The new House of Yes will be a venue where artists can create and present work and audiences can celebrate, socialize and be inspired. The 5,000 sq ft space will have a theater that seats 200, and a standing room of 400!!!  

This will be a place you’ll never have to leave. Come see a cabaret show, support a fundraiser, or celebrate your birthday party. Get inspired by what you see at a show and take a circus class. Blow off some steam on the dance floor. If you don’t drink, no problem, our juice bar will be up and running all night. Take a power nap and come back for brunch. Have kids? Take them to a family friendly circus show on Sundays! We will have it all... and then some. 

FOR ARTISTS         

We will be hosting shows and events every evening, providing local and touring artists with a much needed venue. The restaurant and bar will provide a place to hangout and collaborate.  At House of Yes, we provide artists the resources to take ideas and make them a reality. 

THE PROGRESS

We’ve secured a 10 year lease and have been putting in the walls, plumbing, electrical and soundproofing. We are slated to finish a complete remodel of the interior by early fall of 2014. We’ve partnered up with amazing new collaborators (and long time fans ofHouse of Yes)  Ilan Telmont and Justin Ahiyon, who have an incredible track record of building and running restaurants and bars. We have the necessary funds for the renovations and buildout, but we need your help making the performance space as amazing as possible!    

  • Stage build out with equipment and seating storage built in. $5,000
  • Theatrical lights, dimmer packs, board, cables... $20,700 
  • Sound equipment, speakers, subs, microphones, wires, house drum set $30,250 
  • Theater Curtains that are 30 feet tall and properly fire-proofed $5,850
  • Dressing room with mirrors, flooring, lighting and storage. $2,000
  • Rigging design, carabiners, ropes, anchor points, span sets, pullies, catwalk $6,500 
  • Seating: comfortable folding chairs and cabaret tables $7,000
  • Sound proofing and sound design $19,800 
  • Labor for installing all of the above $8,000 

TOTAL:  $105,100

As you can see the total budget is greater then what we’re asking for. Our goal of $60,000 is conservative.  With this amount we will be able to set up our initial theater department. We're now shooting for $90,000 to make the best venue and theatre ever.

  We have a tight knit community of talented technicians, makers and enthusiastic volunteers. We are using a lot of recycled materials for soundproofing, refurbishing used equipment, and buying as many things second hand as we can.  With that said, building a theater is no small feat.  

We are confident that with your help, we will succeed in opening a  much needed quality performance venue. Lets give all the amazing artists and makers in our city and beyond a facility they deserve for the next 10 years.

Risks and challenges

New York City doesn't make it easy to open up a venue, especially one of this scale and ambition. There are lots of applications, permits, licenses, inspections, red tape and fine print to wade through.

We have a team of professionals who have done this many times before who are working with us to make this process as smooth and efficient as possible. Delays are definitely a possibility, but we have a lot of experience in working quickly and finding solutions to the challenges that come our way.
