New Musical FALL RISK to Launch Fundraiser

Producers Nicole Kohr, Nicole Dvorin, and Michelle Croll have unveiled their fundraiser campaign for a new musical comedy, "Fall Risk." The cast and creative team want to perform in-person in 2022, but they need your help.

The campaign will launch on Fall Risk Prevention Day, September 22nd at 8PM ET, beginning
with a behind-the-scenes documentary. The film will include behind-the-scenes footage from a
June 2020 virtual staged reading and a Summer 2021 workshop, a sneak peek at the script and
score, a series of interviews, and some very exciting announcements. Donors will receive
rewards such as T-shirts and in-person rehearsal visits based on their giving level. Levels can
be found on the show's official GoFundMe page.

The 2022 production will be presented both in-person and as a filmed digital event, in line with
Fall Risk's goal to increase theatrical accessibility and bridge the gap between the chronically ill
and the theatrical communities.

Donors can view the documentary on the Fall Risk YouTube channel or on the Fall Risk
Facebook page
. You can bookmark the event here. The documentary will be free to view, but
donations are encouraged. The starting goal is $15,000. Stretch goals may be revealed based
on the pace of the donations.

"When I was writing this show, I wasn't sure if people were going to care about my story," said
Nicole Kohr, book, lyrics, and executive producer. "But after a yearlong glimpse into the life of a
chronically ill patient, the world is reopening with a drive and a passion. This unique
understanding begs for a musical like Fall Risk. The time to bridge the gap between health and
theater is NOW!"

Inspired by a true story, Fall Risk chronicles the life of Gabriella Michaels, a quirky actress and
cystic fibrosis patient, and her journey through a bilateral lung transplant evaluation. Things
grow complicated when she receives the lead role in a community theater production. Now it's
up to her family, her doctor, and her director to convince her which is more important.

Fall Risk features music by Adam Brostowitz, Andrew John Kosinski, and Dan Monte. To learn

"Best in Show: Community."
