Only in the theater can you create something out of literally nothing. With your support – in just two years — Colt Coeur has been credited with “bringing sexy back to off-Broadway” (New York Magazine) and lauded by The New York Times with the broad recognition “these guys have chops.” The New York Post and Time Out have called our work “pitch perfect” and “wildly charming.” We’ve created two original plays in our uniquely collaborative style (Seven Minutes in Heavenby Steven Levenson and Fish Eye by Lucas Kavner), launched our free week-long Playmaking workshop for Brooklyn teenagers, and held public readings of a bevy of exciting new plays as part of our Play Hotel series. Thank you. For your support, for seeing a show, and for reading this letter.
For 2012 —we’re more ambitious than ever. We are thrilled to announce RECALL by Eliza Clark (Edgewise, P73/Soho Rep and AMC’sThe Killing) as our Spring 2012 production, as well as the longer-term Immortality/Technology Project which we are currently developing with Steven Levenson. Over the next few weeks we’ll embark on the first of several workshops with Steven and the entire Colt Coeur company in our DUMBO studio. We plan to mount the full production next fall—making 2012 Colt Coeur’s first 2-show year! With two successful years of programming under our belt we are finally eligible for many grants—and are hard at work applying for them—but we need your help making these goals a reality.
If you believe in the infinite potential of live theater to inspire compassion, humor, ferocity, and an unapologetic sense of wonder, please join me in making a gift today to our annual fund, and investing in the future of our company. All gifts are tax-deductible and can be made online using a credit card or by mail.
Our growth would be completely impossible without your contributions. Thank you in advance for your tremendous generosity. Wishing you and your loved ones a merry holiday season!
PS Just last week, our most recent production got a nod in New York Magazine’s annual wrap-up of the best downtown theatre of the year!
