So last year this time i was blasting tumblr with pleas to fund a kickstarter for a show that my friend sirtedftw and i wrote called Where No Man Has Gone Before: The Unauthorized Star Trek Parody Musical. We got the show funded and put it up in June.
And then something magical happened, and a producer picked us up and took us all the way to New York, where the show (Now called Warp Speed ) has been accepted to the Midtown International Theater Festival for the commercial division, where last year almost all of the shows got picked up for off broadway right away.
So now I’m asking you again to help us take our show to New York. Why should you care?
This is a show written by two college-aged girls, one of whom is queer (it’s me, I’m here, I’m queer, and I really really want your money), and we try to keep it true to the feeling of Star Trek, which matters to us a lot. Most of all, you can help female creators get their nerdy show to a New York venue, which would be such a kick in the face of every neckbearded bro who quizzes me about star trek when I say I like it like I have to prove it.
Help us do the thing and donate to our kickstarter, and as always, Live Long and Prosper.
