Welcome to the Daily Kos Light Opera Company Project. The previous update can be found here: Last update.
So here is where we are....follow me over the Max Bialystock Memorial Squiggly Doo-Dad for more...
So here we are. There has been a lot of buzz, and I have invited a number of folks to join the working group. If I left you out, let me know in the comments.
So far we are:
commonmass, Artistic Director and Composer
Impolitics Librettist and Co-Creator
Horace Boothroyd III Production Manager
But we still need your help. Zenbasoon, for instance, has pledged his work to help get this engraved and out to folks around the nation who will have to learn songs. For this I am really grateful.
Horace has started putting the idea out there to the folks that will be putting NN 12 together in Providence, RI. If any of you read this, we're serious, so get back to Horace. We'll need a venue, and we'll need advertising. (Are you reading, webranding?)
We will also need money. Not too much money, but Horace is willing to look for grants and I have to say, as an out of work composer, I'd take a modest check, too. It's not like you're not getting anything for it. We may, as it comes down to it, do the Max Bialystock Memorial Fund to pay for the particulars. Not for me, or others. Grants would be better, if we can find them. So, my CV will be available for anyone who would like to contribute to the work that I will do over the next year. If anyone knows anything more about grant writing for a project like this, get in touch with Horace or me.
Now, we are still taking suggestions in the comments. Help us out. Hate Mail-A-Palooza--the Musical! needs your help.
