Hello, Wonderful Mischief Supporters!
Thanks to you, we made it! Your generosity put us 5% over the goal, and we are profoundly grateful. The show WILL go on! Man with a Load of Mischief, which many musical-theater professionals and fans laud as “an overlooked classic” will be introduced this year to a new generation.
Now about your rewards…
Shortly, you’ll receive a brief questionnaire asking for your postal address and other information, such as your T-shirt size if we promised you one. We expect to get all the goodies in the mail within the next few weeks.
If you’re entitled to tickets for the “showcase” performances (contributors of $100 and above who selected this reward), you’ll receive a ticket confirmation via email.
When and where will the performances be held? Well, plans are only now being formulated, but you’ll be among the first to know! We’re looking at the latter part of May and considering several theaters in Manhattan. Dates, times, and location have not yet been set, so that information will arrive later.
Don Hauptman, who collaborated with us on this project, conveys his personal thanks to those who contributed at his request. And MY thanks to Don, without whose help we would never have achieved such success.
Finally, some people told us they missed the Kickstarter deadline but would still like to contribute. To accommodate anyone who wants want to pitch in, we have set up a page at http://www.MischiefTheMusical.com/revival. And the rewards for donations will still be available there – the same ones that were offered on Kickstarter.
Thanks again. We’re simply THRILLED that Man with a Load of Mischief is back on the road to a major revival.
Our very best wishes,
John and Ben
