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

(You can also snatch up some tickets right here:

In case you're curious about the incredible FLWL cast you've helped to support in this endeavor, check them out right here on the minutelovestories blog. We are in absolute awe of their fearlessness, humor, vulnerability, and passion within (and for) this project.

And, from the bottom of our collective hearts to all of you, piles and heaps of besitos!
More news soon. xx - RC

One day short of a fortnight left!

This experience, thus far, has been absolutely awe-inspiring and we are overjoyed with the amount of support and love and bolstering we've received in words and funding. With just 13 days remaining, we have just 23% left! You all are outstanding and wonderful beings to be so giving and generous. This labor of love really and truly does need you!

FYI, I won't be posting it here, as I still want it to remain a surprise, but the piece Ned Evans has created is truly magnificent and, along with Michael Winters's Saw limited edition photograph, I promise, for all you $150+ backers getting rewards, you'll be thrilled.

Oh, also thought you might want to meet our First Love/Worst Love cast, the lovely and amazing crew of five: Hayley J. Williams, Len Davies, Maggie Lehman, Seth Burnham, and Anna Moon.

For inspiration and reminder that love is unstoppable, I've attached an awesome tagged street sign in Venice, California.

Update - Day 11

We are over the moon with the amount of love that's already been shown for First Love/Worst Love! After 11 days, we've reached $2472 out of our $5500 goal - what a joy to know that so many of you support this project with such heart and soul.

I've already begun to compile a healthy assortment of postcards to be mailed to so many of you, with private messages scrawled in the barely legible hand of yours truly (see photographic evidence of aforesaid postcard heap) and Ned Evans is in the beginning stages of creating his magical and jaw-dropping abstract art for all of you $150+ backers! I promise it's going to be wonderful and you'll be undoubtedly overjoyed.

We've got just 24 days remaining of this campaign, so please tell your friends and lovers about this project should you not already have done so! In the meantime, we are ever so grateful to each and every one of you beautiful creatures.

With love, RC
