I ask excuse of you!

Welcome to the Hotel Colors. Yes, it may be a hostel of shit. But the price is good. And there is love, philosophy and games of "ever ever have I never." Six unlikely travelers converge and form a fleeting community as they fail, and flail, to communicate. With original songs.

The Hotel Colors will have its world premiere at the The Bushwick Starr this spring season, May 8 to May 25, 2013.

The Hotel Colors Team

Written by Eliza Bent; Directed by Anna Brenner; Produced by Regina Vorria; Dramaturg/Associate Producer Sarah Rose Leonard; Set Design by Blanca Añón; Costume Design by Ásta Hostetter; Lighting Design by Yi Zhao; Sound Design by Kenneth Goodwin.   

Starring Christine Holt, Alessandro Magania, Linda Mancini, Federico Rodriguez, Kourtney Rutherford, Howard Thoresen. 

"Bent has the makings of a great comedienne...” – Matthew Clayfield, RealTime Arts

“For those who have gotten on Bent’s bandwagon, you’ll have plenty of other chances to enjoy her coltish chic…." – Helen Shaw, Time Out New York

How Can You Help?

So far, we have been grateful to receive institutional support that has helped us cover about half ($5,395) of our total budget ($10,895) and pay for preliminary production expenses. 

By funding The Hotel Colors via our Kickstarter campaign, you are helping us pay for:

  • Set materials
  • Costumes
  • Props
  • Production insurance 
  • Rehearsal and performance fees for the amazing actors
  • Stipends for the stellar designers and creative team
  • Stipends for production crew
  • Transportation of materials 

Remember, Kickstarter is an all or nothing organization. This means if we don’t raise all of the $5,500 dollars, we get absolutely niente! (nothing). Whether or not you can kick in your dollars or Euros, please help us spread the word about this project through your word of mouth, your social medias, your blogs, tweets, bleets, blips and blops. GRAZIE MILLE!

ABOUT THE BUSHWICK STARR

The Bushwick Starr is an Obie Award winning non-profit theater that presents an annual Season of new work in theater, dance, and puppetry. We are an organization defined by both our artists and our community, and since 2007, we have grown into a thriving theatrical venue, a vital neighborhood arts center, and a destination for exciting and engaging performance. The Bushwick Starr’s mission is to help ambitious artists and ambitious audiences find each other. We provide a springboard for emerging professional artists to make career-defining leaps, and we are a sanctuary where established performance companies come to experiment and innovate.

Risks and challenges

This is Eliza Bent's Off-Off-Broadway playwriting debut and we want to make it as beautiful, professional and entertaining as possible.

We believe in paying our team and providing our designers with budgets that allow them to fully realize the world of this play.

The only challenge we face today is the capital needed to self produce a play. With your help, that challenge can easily be overcome.
