THE MAN WHO SAVED EVERYTHING by Benjamin Scuglia — developed in the same workshops as A BRONX TALE by Chazz Palminteri, now a hit Broadway musical — is a timely and compelling exploration of hoarding, family and memory, our possessions and the connections that bind us together. It has the potential to be a powerful theatrical experience, but It needs YOUR financial support to reach opening night.

All donations go directly to the costs involved in mounting a new play: everything from hiring a scenic designer to printing the program to insurance payments to the theatre. We are devoted to fully realizing TMWSE on a modest budget. We are relying on volunteers, reduced fees and other cost-saving measures. But there are still expenses involved and that's where YOU come in. YOU can be a part of bringing this compelling new play to the Los Angeles stage (and beyond!).

UPDATE No. 1

THANK YOU from the cast and crew of TMWSE for your support so far! As you can see, the cast is deep into rehearsals. That's David Mingrino, Alan Schack and Julia Silverman doing table work with director Michael Van Duzer. (That's not our set, however; we are sharing the stage with FAMILY ONLY, currently running at Theatre West.)

Help us continue to spread the word and stay tuned for more updates! YOUR donations are making it happen.

Cheers,
The cast and crew of TMWSE
