HI Everyone! My name is Ron Tsur and I'm an Israeli playwright and actor. I moved to New York 7 years ago for school, fell madly in love (with the city) so I just stayed! Legally, if there's anyone thinking of calling Immigration. Seriously, papers and everything...
A play I wrote got ACCEPTED to "New York New Works" international theater festival, and will make it's debute this October! It's a comedy about religion and guilt (because I like making people laugh but also feel uncomfortable about laughing) starring the hilarious comedienne Becca Beberaggi and this other shmuck named Ron something.
This means this will be my Off-Broadway stage debute both as an actor AND playwrite, and I couldn't be happier-
I included elements of my mom (who I'm dedicating this play to), dad, family, friends and so many people I know into this play while writing, this is deeply personal to me.
This festival is a huge opportunity as it is mosly aimed to be performed for industry people (TV and Network executives as well as Broadway producers, and so much more) and that's where I need you-
Putting up a show costs money. Like, way more than I thought. We're talking festival fees, PR, postcards and spreads, lighting, sound, rehearsals, rehearsal spaces, future productions in case we move forward, actually paying people for work, set... jeez.
The festival is graciously covering a lot and I already put in a lot of my own money, but every day that goes by reveals another cost, so I thought I'd give this a try and see if there are people out there who can help me with this.
I really am excited/nervous, and the possibility of having family and friends actually be a part of this ,do this and do this WELL would be an added layer of joy to an already amazing experience!
So... yeah. That's my spiel. We go up early October but I have to make all the payments before the festival starts so I'm giving this a 3 week time frame (October 1st), so if you want to help me make people laugh and definitely fulfill a dream, I promise you I will never forget it.
