Some friends from back in CO are pulling together a...well, really, their words are best, "a one-of-a-kind, Vaudeville Nouveau-meets-Wile E. Coyote, all-American, 1/4 European, contraption-riddled, quirky, character-driven, RISK-TAKING, expectation-breaking, object-manipulating, CIRCUS-infused, standing-ovation-inducing, THEATRICAL EXTRAVAGANZA featuring classic routines from slapstick to chainsaw juggling, serenading to swing dancing, the Ladder of Love, the Human Cannonball and more!."

I knew these guys when they were just starting out as street performers in Ft. Collins....now they're off to do an Off-Broadway show. And they've got a Kickstarter* going to make sure the show is the biggest, bestest it can be.

Anyway, I'm already throwing some money in the pot, but I figured the best thing I could do is to spread the word. So if you've a buck or two to spare (or more, of course, but minimum pledge really is only a dollar) and think the world would be that much happier if there was more "Vaudeville Nouveau-meets-Wile E. Coyote" in the world (and how could you not?) then why not add to the fun?

And if you're in NYC? Totally worth picking up a ticket.

*Unfamiliar with Kickstarter? It's a great "crowd-funding" resource that creates "a new way to fund creative ideas and ambitious endeavors." It's based on the beliefs that:

• A good idea, communicated well, can spread fast and wide.
• A large group of people can be a tremendous source of money and encouragement.

The primary drive behind it is their all-or-nothing model. If a project is not fully-funded through the pledges submitted, no money changes hands.
