Post Help pay the RENT!
Hi Guys! I've been a musical theater nut my whole life. I've dreamed of producing Jonathan Larson's Pulitzer Prize winning rock opera, RENT, since I was 15-years-old, and now it looks like my dream has the ability to come true!. This spring I will be co-directing and producing RENT in the up-and-coming art district in downtown Los Angeles. I've put together an incredible team of brilliant people to help me the get job done well. We will need *YOUR* help however, to make this dream a reality.

We've just launched an online fundraiser on Kickstarter to try and raise funds to put on this show. Kickstarter is an incredible program which helps artists raise money for creative projects.

**The catch***: Kickstarter will only give us the raised donations if we meet 100% of our goal. If we don't meet that goal, you guessed it, we get nada.

Please check out the fundraising site and watch the promo for the musical here:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/20 ... y-the-rent

The idea here is that a lot of small donations can add up. I know that times are tough so whether you can contribute $5 or $500, please know that every single dollar helps us reach our goal!

There is no pressure to get involved but I hope you do! And I hope you spread the word!

Thank you so much!

Lots of love,

Kate & the cast & crew of RENT!

Wow, how exciting!

I just saw you've reached your funding goal. Congratulations!

Can I still donate, or is it too late? I don't have much, it's the end of the month, and RENT is due, but I figured you could use an additional penny or two, haha.

Is there an official site?

Best of luck! I can't wait to see how it turns out. Love your ideas.

Level of debt increases, more and more people are working, in order to maintain the head above water, often borrow a credit card payment or to take debt consolidation loans and find, instead of reducing its debt, an increase of it - and higher interest rates!
