David J's new 'Black Dahlia' theatrical production
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Following on from the success of the last kickstarter campaign to finance the making of my album, ‘Not Long For This World’, we have decided to go the same route again with the aim of raising funds to realize a new stage production. I was recently approached by the lovely ladies at the Bootleg Theatre in LA, with a view to staging my play with music, ‘The Chanteuse and the Devil’s Muse’ ( about the legendary Black Dahlia murder ). They want to have the play run for the entire month of September. The Bootleg is a great little space and the perfect location for this piece. The production will feature a rotating cast culled from the bleeding edge of contemporary theatre in Los Angeles as well as live music performed by Ego Plum ( Ebola Music Orchestra ) Ysanne Spevack ( Smashing Pumpkins etc. ) and myself. It will also feature the extraordinary, internationally acclaimed Butoh performer, Vangeline. The play will also be staged for one night and one night only, at the Million Dollar Theatre in Downtown LA on November 12, 2011.
Still, we need some dosh to make this magic happen so, once again, dear patron, this is where you become vital to the unfolding story. The money will pay for flights, accommodation, rehearsals, costumes, props, special lighting equipment, projectors etc.
