Darren's Belasco Buy Out

What’s up people? We’re the Belasco Buy Out Team!

To celebrate the last show of Darren Criss owning the stage in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway we thought there was no better way than to metaphorically “sell out” his last performance with fans from all around the world and have every cent go directly to The Hetrick-Martin Institute  for LGBT Youth!

So, like who is this Hetrick-Martin Institute and why have we never heard about them before, JERRY? I’m glad you asked! Hetrick-Martin institute (HMI) is the nations oldest and largest non-profit leader in LGBTQ youth service programming with life-saving initiatives in New York, Newark and across the country. Just like our leading man, Darren, HMI believes that all young people, regardless of sexual orientation or identity deserve a safe environment in which to achieve their full potential. For every ticket purchased on Broadway, HEDWIG makes a donation, so we’re following their lead.

So how does this work?

Assuming that each seat in the 1016 capacity Belasco Theatre is just $1, we hope to sell it out many times over.

So let’s make this really simple…

1. Our goal is $1016 (the number of seats in the Belasco Theatre)
2. We’re hoping to double or TRIPLE that goal
3. By donating as little as $1 you’re part of the Belasco Buy Out and will have your name on the list that’s given to Darren on the day of the final show. TA-DA!

But wait, there’s less! For every $1 you donate you’re going to be entered to win some little prizes from Miss Hedwig herself, including signed Playbills and some other fun stuff along the way. So make sure you’re following us on our Tumblr  and Twitter  to stay updated!

We’re running this fundraiser from Pride (June 28th), all the way up until 11:59PM on July 18th. We will be handing over the final amount raised, and the list of everyone who pledged a “seat” before Darren’s last show on July 19th.

From East Berlin to Junction City and everywhere in between, we’re hoping you can join us to make a difference.

Thanks you for all of your help! Keep on shinin’ like the brightest stars!
