About the event
YOLO! Productions/The Great Griffon Productions are pleased to present "Animals Out of Paper" by Pulitzer Prize nominee Rajiv Joseph. Directed by Merri Milwe and starring Nairoby Otero and David Beck. This is a beautiful but relatively unknown play by a major force in the American theater. It is funny, sweet, witty, and even melancholy at times...a real slice of life and a total immersion into three quirky, lovable characters. We are honored to have the personal support of the playwright himself and are well on our way to producing 16 performances in February.
What makes this production so special is that it will be site specific: the majority of the play takes place in an origami artist's studio, therefore we have found a charming, open space on the Upper West Side at West Park Church. We are incorporating live music and captivating origami art cascading from the high ceiling that will enhance this already exquisite piece of theatre.
To transform the unusual space, we have assembled an incomparable design team led by our director Merri Milwe. We have a top notch press agent in David Gersten, who has a slew of Broadway and off-Broadway credits. Therefore, we expect excellent, intelligent audiences as well as critics from major publications, including The New York Times, TimeOut, and Variety. Indeed, all the folds of this very intricate origami piece are in perfect alignment to make this production an enormous success.
Theatre, as we all know, is not without cost. We need $10,000 in order to make this production a reality. With your sponsorship, we can make this dream a reality and dazzle audiences and critics alike.
In addition to the listed publications above, the creme de la creme of the theatre and art scene are expected to be in attendance at this hip, cool event.
We would be happy to advertise your product in our play and feature it to our audience, and give your product to audience members during intermission (if applicable). The house manager will also mention the product during the curtain speech and thank you.
