Off-Broadway's FINAL ANALYSIS and BREAKFAST WITH MUGABE Exceed Fundraising Goals on Kickstarter
Even a limited Off-Broadway run is a costly endeavor. And while the economy is visibly recovering, it is questionable if that has yet fully translated to the arts. The producers of Final Analysis and Breakfast With Mugabe have adopted and live by four important tenets - support women in theatre, create provocative works, make them accessible to the general public, and stimulate important conversations. Final Analysis is set in 1910 Vienna, a time of growing unrest and world change - but it could easily be set today, given the climate of unrest we are seeing around the world. Breakfast With Mugabe examines the tension between modern ideas and ancient beliefs, the question of whether those who were colonized can live with their former subjugators, and how a man who was oppressed becomes an oppressor. Both works are powerful reminders that the past is still very much part of our present, so we need to be mindful.
Breakfast With Mugabe begins previews on August 7th and Final Analysis on August 8th.
