Bringing Patricia Neal home


All of show business is on hold.  Broadway shows, regional theatre productions, and touring shows have all shut down.  Every Broadway theatre is now dark.  it is an unprecedented and frightening time.

My own work has all come to a halt.  Four jobs have been cancelled and I have had to scramble to return advances.  I am trying to find ways to stay financially afloat at this time.

With a firm belief that it is better to light a single candle than to sit and curse the darkness, I have created a plan for a new project called "BRINGING PATRICIA NEAL HOME."  This GO FUND ME campaign will pay for me to create a tribute show in honor of our old friend, Academy Award winner Patricia Neal.  This show will take place in Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, where Patricia Neal spent her summers for many years.  Ten years ago, Patricia was at her beloved Martha's vineyard home when she passed away.  The plan will  be to do this project soon after things open up for theatre performances are allowed again on Martha's Vineyard. 

This performance, created and produced by me, will also include the unveiling and gifting of a beautiful painting of Patricia Neal.  This painting, by Jack Millette Mosher, is from my personal collection.  The painting will remain permanently out on the Vineyard as a legacy to one of the most unforgettable performers of all time. 

All donors will be recognized and thanked for contributions which will allow this to happen.  I know we all are suffering through this terrible time.  Please be as generous as you can be.
