Please help us realize a dream! We'd like to make a cast album/concept album for Chip Deffaa's playful musical comedy "Theater Boys."
The show was a great hit in its premiere festival engagement in New York City. (In fact two of our original-cast members were voted the best actors in the entire festival!) This high-spirited show features book, music and lyrics by ASCAP/Deems Taylor Award-winner Chip Deffaa, the creator of such well-received Off-Broadway shows as "One Night with Fanny Brice" and "George M. Cohan Tonight!"
Risks and challenges
Making a cast album or concept album is a complicated process. Having made such albums for five shows of Chip Deffaa's already, we've learned that there can be delays due to all sorts of factors, including availability of artists, availability of recording studios, and technical problems. But everyone is highly motivated to see the project through, and the projects always get completed. In the summer of 2011, we began a Kickstarter campaign to make a cast album for Chip Deffaa's "The Seven Little Foys." Thanks to the generous support of about 85 backers--everyone from longtime friends to total strangers (not to mention some kind-hearted relatives)--the project was successfully funded, and successfully completed. All backers got the promised rewards. In the summer of 2012, the album was released. It's currently available for sale on Amazon, CDBaby, iTunes, etc. We wound up with some very talented artists on the recording (including one Grammy-winning musician). We hope to have similar luck with our "Theater Boys" recording project. Thanks for your consideration!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
