Hello, everyone, my name is J.R. Wortham. I am a playwright and director. I, along with our production cast and crew, recently premiered a live comedy, How to Marry the Bank, at the historical Barnsdall Gallery Theater in Los Angeles, California to a sold out crowd (Oh yeah, the theater wants us back!). After the show, our audience members made such comments as “That was the funniest show I’ve seen in a long time,” “I’d pay to see it again,” and the always infamous admission, “I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants (Seriously, someone told me that.).  

Like our wonderful audience members, Miss Laura Hayes (Meet the Browns, Martin, Queens of Comedy) is pumped to head back to the stage!

Now, there’s no time to wait! (And no more money in our production fund). We must do this again! And we need your help to raise the money for a five-show run at Barnsdall. Funds will be used to secure the theater (most of our cost), pay the cast and crew, and advertise the show. You said you loved us, and you know we love you. Let’s meet one more time (okay five more times) and laugh until we drop (not pee on ourselves).

In exchange for your contributions, we are offering perks like a VIP Backstage Experience, pictures with your favorite cast member, signed programs, signed posters, scripts, t-shirts and honorable mentions on our website's list of distinguished contributors. Thank you in advance for your support, and we will see you at the theater!

Don’t forget: We Give Back! At the end of our first production, we donated a portion of our t-shirt sales to the Downtown Women’s Center. This time we would like to take it a step further and donate one night of our ticket sales! (We'd have to have more than one show to make this a reality.). Check out this great charity. They deserve the funding.

We will have as many shows as you will fund. This is what each show will cost (includes the 9% owed to Indiegogo):

First Show: $24,806 (Rehearsals, initial set up, and equipment costs are included in this amount.)

Second Show: $5,676 (We can donate the ticket sales to our charity if we are funded for two shows.)

Third Show: $5,676

Fourth Show: $5,676

Fifth Show: $5,676
