Who will save Broadway??? The Visionary Director? The Aging Rockstar? The Pestering Columnist? The Idealistic Producers? The Naive Star? Or will the biggest Broadway Musical in history go down as a tragedy of Greek proportions?

THE LEGEND OF JULIE TAYMOR... tells the rise and fall story of director Julie Taymor and the behind-the-scenes scandals of Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark on Broadway! Facing financial problems, actor injuries, technical problems, performance delays, scathing reviews, and a complete overhaul... this is how the most expensive flop in theatre history made Broadway legend. 

What some people sometimes don't know is that even though we're accepted to the Fringe Festival, we still have to raise and produce the show ourselves. Our Kickstarter goal of $8,000 is only part of what we'll need to produce this show for FringeNYC, our full budget is close to $14,000. Your generous donations will help pay the actors, musicians, a director, a music director, stage manager, crew, rehearsal space for 4 weeks, sets, lights and sound that will bring our vision to life before a live New York audience. 

The cast includes 9 actors, playing over 30 characters (based on real figures), and a three member rock band. This show is sure to be a highlight of the FringeNYC festival this summer.

CAST:  Jennifer Barnhart*, Christopher Davis Carlisle*, Clint Carter, Lynn Craig, Kiley L. McDonald, Johnnie Moore, Shaun Rice, Barry Shafrin, and Michael Titone.

 *Actors appearing courtesy of Actors Equity Association; Equity Approved Showcase

BAND:  David Fletcher (Music Director & Bass), Paul Hemmings (Guitar), Casual-T (Drums)
