As I have previously announced, my drama ROEBLING: The Story of the Brooklyn Bridge is in development with Theater To Go for a limited run New York City production.
Through a partnership with Fractured Atlas, we are able to accept tax-deductible donations. And the time for funding is now!
We’re seeking $36,000 or more in donations to bring this historic drama to life on the New York stage. In addition to your donation being tax-deductible, we’ve assembled a great line of “perks” for those who donate. From show tickets and ads in our program to producer credits and lunch in NYC, there’s something for everyone. There’s too many to list but we believe the highlight of the perks to be genuine Roebling artifacts. These have been generously donated and certified by the Roebling Museum and are available nowhere else. More on the artifacts here.
We’re very excited about bringing this play to New York City. The narrative is based on the true story of the Roebling family’s efforts to build the Brooklyn Bridge during the Industrial Revolution of the 19th Century. The construction taking place within New York’s notoriously corrupt government, while employing dangerous new engineering techniques. The Roebling family suffers great loss amid construction but ultimately triumphs in building the longest, tallest suspension bridge in the world. More on the true story.
ROEBLING has thrilled audiences in two previous non-equity performances, but I am especially eager to see it performed in NYC. In front of what might be considered its “home crowd”.
For the uninitiated, IndieGoGo is a premier source of crowdfunding on the web. Basically the idea is to get your project on their website and expose it to many people with the aim of raising funds for the project. There are several other good sites for this but IndieGoGo works especially well with Fractured Atlas’ non-profit model.
