I have some great designers in my mental rolodex – I’ve got Avery Swartz, and Blair Francey, and Randal Boutilier off the top of my head, and this year I added Kinnon Elliott. And like Randall’s Christmas card, Kinnon has created an awesome design for today, click on the image to see it.Well done Kinnon.
Excellent preview article for 4.48 Psychosis in this week’s NOW Magazine – we open tonight so today is a day of press kits and paperwork and getting ready. When I first read the script, I wasn’t entirely sure how they were going to approach it, but after seeing some rehearsal and definitely dress rehearsal I think they’ve taken a very weighty piece and made it accessible. It’s dark, to be sure. And it’s thoughtful and approachable and the performances, direction and design all do really good things together. I’m looking forward to it.
And this? Made me very happy on a marketing level, a fundraising level, a turn-it-around level and a human level.
Supporters pledged to raise $100 for every minute the group plans to protest… (The fundraiser)… exceeded expectations, bringing in $41,529 (as of their posting).
