Waiting... is the edgy new musical about a week in the life of a young Latino graffiti artist. Taking place in the environs of The City of Angels, Los Angeles, Prof, Grace, Izzy, and Marcus all join him as their own journeys intersect during a week in the lives of these Angelenos.
Boulder, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/21/2013 -- Waiting..., Blank Canvas Productions’ official entry in The 2013 Boulder International Fringe Festival, is the feisty new musical about GG, a young Latino graffiti artist, finding his way through life and his art in the city of Los Angeles. As a five character contemporary chamber musical, Waiting... punches a mighty wallop with its heart-felt worldly story; its complicated, yet, humorous characters; its multi-media art (graffiti slides, animation, and film); and its Latin/ Rock/Jazz-tinged musical score, establishing the melting pot of different cultures in LA. All of these elements combine to capture the show’s story and the vibe of LA.
In May 2012, Waiting... had its successful workshop premiere in Boulder, Colorado. Since then, the script, characters, and music and lyrics have undergone exciting and big changes as this story of GG, Prof, Grace, Izzy, and Marcus has focused, expanded, and bloomed.
Waiting... is now on the cusp to take this next BIG step, but is looking for financial support, big and small. As the artistic community knows, bringing any show to the stage involves setting a specific budget and production goals to help tell the story efficiently and visually. And bringing Waiting... to The 2013 Boulder International Fringe Festival in September is no exception - it requires real money to meet those artistic and production needs.
Composer/Librettist Michael O'Dell and Blank Canvas Productions have set a campaign goal of $5000+ to be reached by September 9, 2013. Contributions can be as small as $1 - every little bit helps us reach our goal. Waiting... and Blank Canvas Productions are sponsored by New York City-based Fractured Atlas, a non-profit organization that serves a national community of artists and arts organizations - all in a context that honors their individuality and independent spirit.
