Because I want to support new theater.
Because I so appreciated Octavio Solis' direction of The Brothers Size at the Magic Theater.
Because Campo Santo is awesome.
Because after the cheap-ticket-and-free-glass-of-wine at the Magic last week, I could stand to give them a little more of my money.
Because I'm tickled pink at the thought of a new play called Sunset that takes place in my neighborhood, the Sunset District of San Francisco.
Because I do unto others as I would have them do unto me: if I ever become a well-known playwright, I'd sure as hell like it if total strangers donated money to help support the development of my new play!
This is my way of saying that I just contributed $20 to the Octavio SUNSET Challenge, which is seeking to raise $10,000 within the next week to commission and develop a new play, Sunset, by local favorite Octavio Solis (in collaboration with Campo Santo). All donated funds will be matched 100% by the San Francisco Foundation’s Artists Matching Commission.
I'm excited to see what comes out of this...
