Dear Kickstarter backers:

THANK YOU again for all of your support in making "Say You Heard My Echo" possible.The pay-off has been so great to hear from our audiences that they were "blown away" by the work or statements like "I feel like you took our hearts and just put them on the stage."

One young woman thanked me last night for how SYHME made her feel so uncomfortable since it's renewed her passion for social justice. A community organizer friend who works tirelessly fighting for immigrant communities said it was so refreshing to engage with these issues through art. Another woman told me she was so happy to see gritty NYC women represented on stage - not just "Sex and the City" types, lol :)

We have 3 MORE SHOWS in NYC (2 PM Sat. 9/15, 7 PM Sat. 9/15, 2 PM Sun. 9/16) and we definitely don't want folks to miss it (we sold out the house last night and are likely to sell out tonight also, woo-hoo!). They can snag tix at - Use discount code FRIEND for $15 tix to all shows!

Check out our awesome press and more audience quotes below - THANK YOU AGAIN FOR YOUR SUPPORT - without you this wouldn't be possible!
