DAJA VU,                                                                                                                          a solo show                                                                                                               written and performed by Aja Nisenson                                                                               directed by Michael Aman                                                                                                   musical direction by David Gaines

Daja Vu, a solo show, was accepted into the 2011 FringeNYC, for 5 performances in August. In order to make this production a success I need to hire a director, musical director, stage manager, lighting designer, spot light operator, sound technician. There is a festival fee, mandatory insurance fee, publicity, PR, postcards, photo shoot for publicity, posters, rehearsal space, mic rental, costumes, hair extensions, teeth whitening, botox, my third nipple removal, and vicodin. The stuff adds up! The kickstarter goal is just a fraction of the total cost of the production and doesn't even cover a third of the nipple surgery or the cost of pickles consumed in the making of the film.
