The Years by Cindy Lou Johnson
The production of Cindy Lou Johnson's The Years!!!
I am Basil Rojas and this will be the first full-length production which I direct and produce. I've been so priviledged to have been able to work with some extraordinary artists and directors in theater and who have taught me so much. It took a long time to pick a full-length piece for my directorial debut. I wanted to find something that would leave me thinking and would elicit feeling something, everything. After reading stacks of plays, I finally came across "The Years" by Cindy Lou Johnson and immediately knew it was the story I wanted to bring to life. It moved me and I believe it will move you. I decided to bring the words to life via my company, Sleeping Satellites Productions, in order to take you into a world where appearances aren't always what they seem.
Now here we are getting closer and closer to the opening night of our three week run and I have learned that being an independent producer in New York City is more expensive than I anticipated. Theatre rentals are astronomical and paying all of the incredible artists involved for their time is not cheap. Together with the amazing Xandra Leigh Parker and her company, Brazen Acorn Productions, the show will be one that should not be missed but we need your help to truly bring it to life!
Your generous donations will help pay for the lighting, set and costumes. Please consider providing support to local artists. We are truly greatful for your help in bringing this dream to life! Don't miss the show opening on Oct 5th!
