    AMERICAN TRANQUILITY

    fandango 4 Art House is seeking donations to produce Daniel Damiano's AMERICAN TRANQUILITY this fall in NYC.

     New York, NY, United States
    This is a Fiscally-Sponsored Project

    Fiscally Sponsored by Fractured Atlas

    We at fandango 4 Art House are seeking donations to help us produce Daniel Damiano's ever-timely, hilarious, disturbing and moving solo play AMERICAN TRANQUILITY this fall for a 3 performance/3 week run at a venue in the East Village, NYC. 

    AMERICAN TRANQUILITY was last performed as part of the 16th Annual Downtown Urban Arts Festival in April 2018, where it was hailed by critic Anthony Piccione of Onstage Blog as being "One of the best one-person shows that I ever reviewed."


    Who We Are

    fandango 4 Art House is a non-profit theatre company based in NYC, founded by Judy Alvarez and Daniel Damiano.  Our mission from the beginning has been to produce high-quality, cost-effective theatre as well as be a home for artists.   Since 2014,  we have produced our free EyeShot Reading/Workshop Series, produced the acclaimed World Premier of Daniel Damiano's THE DISHONORABLE DISCHARGE OF PRIVATE PITTS in 2015 as well as  establish our Educational Wing with last year's first Summer Playwriting Workshop.

    As the world of Theatre is often impacted by being of the moment and relative to the times that we find ourselves living in, we strongly feel that AMERICAN TRANQUILITY deserves more lives and the chance to be seen by more audiences. 

    Written and performed by Award-winning Playwright, Actor and Poet Daniel Damiano and directed by Kathy Gail MacGowan, AMERICAN TRANQUILITY is a multi-character solo piece which specifically focuses, in both a very funny and very textured way,  on four very different Americans; a retired Alabaman, an Iranian Poet/Percussionist, a radio talk-show host and a Brooklyn existentialist, who reflect on the human divide in 21st Century America, specifically tackling themes such as Ageism, Immigration, Political Extremism and Societal Disconnection.

    While the piece has been much acclaimed by audiences at the PIT Loft and as part of the Downtown Urban Arts Festival this past April, the feedback we have continuously received is that this is not only must-see theatre but a piece very much for the times and of the moment.  

    It is this combined with our steadfast belief in this piece of work that we are compelled to bring AMERICAN TRANQUILITY back for a 3 show/3 week engagement at a theatre we have chosen in the beautiful East Village of NYC - and, boy, can we use your help!  


    What We Need -

    While producing a solo show for 3 shows over 3 weeks may be cheaper than producing a full three week run, venues are still extremely costly and, therefore, your support will help us immeasurably.  So here's what your donation would help to cover;

    Venue Rental - $1800 

    Rehearsal Space - $100

    Insurance - $300

    Salary for Board Operator/Stage Mgr - $150

    Marketing/Advertisement (Postcards/Posters) - $200

    Ticketing - $350

    *Your donations are tax deductible.  


    What You Get

    While you are always welcome to donate simply to support our projects, we are proud to offer some nice little perks for your donations, including complimentary tickets, fandango 4 Art House T-Shirts, a signed copy of Daniel Damiano's acclaimed (and now published) play DAY OF THE DOG and other surprises! 


    The Impact

    We cannot put into words how much we would appreciate your help in funding this special project...but here's a few anyway;  your tax deductible (oh, yes!) donation will be going towards keeping impactful, thought-provoking and cost-effective theatre alive in NYC.  While commercial rents remain unyielding in these times, it is the culture of our great city that can transcend the fiscal strains many of us feel on a daily basis. 

    Your donation lessens our fiscal strain and allows us all the more to focus on creating work that audiences can be engaged and moved by.  


    Other Ways You Can Help

    And, of course, don't be shy about spreading the word.  We're so happy to have your support, but are certainly open to having new supporters as well.  And if you've seen AMERICAN TRANQUILITY and want to help us spread the word about this campaign as well as it's eventual fall run, we'd sure be thankful!!!


    Sincerely,

    Judy Alvarez and Daniel Damiano
