and I are very proud to announce this production of Bumpersticker
, our first full-scale musical since Bukowsical
, the show that won the 2007 New York International Fringe Festival. Bumpersticker
is set during a massive urban traffic jam; each song is inspired by one of those blunt, punchy slogans you’ve seen on the backs of cars throughout your life. Bumpersticker
will appear at this year’s Hollywood Fringe Festival
in June, at The Dragonfly
, the home of “Fringe Central.” It combines an ideal location with the best sound system at the Festival. Plus, it has a bar!As we continue to interview designers, reach out to the top musical talent in town, and lock down rehearsal space, we have launched an Indiegogo “crowd-funding”
campaign to raise $17,500 for our cast and crew, equipment, venue rental, and marketing. And now, we need your generous support
to make this timely, irreverent all-American musical happen!
In return for your contribution, we offer an exciting array of perks, which include: exclusive private links to digital copies of the show music, “thank-yous” on Facebook and Twitter, limited-edition Bumpersticker bumperstickers, tickets to our performances, signed show posters, and even various levels of producer credits.

Our great team includes Michael Blaha
, who has produced over 35 shows for the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and was the producer for our New York production of Bukowsical
; and Michele Spears
, a theatre director and choreographer whose work has been recognized in New York Nightlife, LA Weekly, StagesceneLA, UNIMA, Saturn, and Dramalogue, and Santa Barbara Independent Awards, as well as an American Choreographers Award nomination.THANK YOU so much for all the support you’ve given me over the years. Spencer and I worked long and hard on this show, and I think you’ll find it funny, tuneful and meaningful. It’s our best work yet!
I’ve never been a part of a crowd-funding campaign before. Please help us make it a huge success. We can’t wait for you to see and hear Bumpersticker!
Love and thanks,
“They’ll know who you are, by what you stick on your car.”
