Here’s an example of a successful Kickstarter campaign used in the arts. Organizers of this production achieved its $5,000 goal a week ahead of time.
Theatrical magician Christian Cagigal returns to EXIT Stage Left with The Collection, a brand-new showcase for his fascinating and mesmerizing mixture of magical effects and enthralling storytelling.
The Collection runs every night from April Fool’s Day through Friday the 13th. Opens April 1. Shows April 2-7 and 9-13 are at 8:00 p.m. Sundays April 1 & 8 at 7:00 p.m.
In a most daring approach to publicity, EXIT Theatre and Cagigal are not releasing any details about The Collection.
Moreover, once the show opens, Cagigal and EXIT Theatre will be asking audience members and the press not to reveal a single thing that happens in order to maintain the surprise and mystery of the show.
EXIT Stage Left is at 156 Eddy Street in Downtown San Francisco.
