Update #3

Got a whole lotta love


With six days left of the campaign, we've reached our lean and mean budget thanks to the staggering support of all of you, our 85 backers! I can't even begin to appropriately express the gratitude in gathering support from all over the country and beyond. From this support and love, the Hollywood Fringe Festival premiere of "First Love/Worst Love" is flourishing with love and life!

For those of you in the Southern California area (and the recipients of free tickets, to boot), below are the "First Love/Worst Love" performance dates.*Don't worry, free ticket recipients, we'll send y'all a separate email specifically regarding comped tickets and scheduled performances in order to get you all set up with the Open Fist box office and the tickets reserved under your name.

Friday, June 8th 6:30 pm PREMIERE
Saturday, June 16th 8:30 pm
Wednesday, June 20th 5:30 pm
Saturday, June 23rd 2:30 pm FINAL SHOW
