Kat Letwin, Michael Musi & Kat Sandler of Theatre Brouhaha and Zoomer Live Theatre's Late Night

The old boys club of late night talk shows is about to be injected with an atomic shot of millennial female. Welcome to the final taping of Marty O’Malley’s Early Late Show, where heir apparent to the host chair, comedienne Sarah Goldberg ­ (Kat Letwin ) is about the fill the very large shoes of reluctant retiree Marty O’Malley ­ (Alon Nashman). The kicker? The Early Late Show is going LIVE, for the first time in 22 years. 

To commemorate the passing of the torch, long time executive producer of The Early Late Show has organized to have Marty and Sarah share the host chair. A mistake, that may be the first and last of her career, after a freudian slip throws the taping into chaos.

Crowdfunding Roundtable

Crowdfunding offers indie theatre groups the opportunity to fundraise that doesn’t require the task of creating and organizing a fundraising event. Crowdfunding gives us the opportunity to get our campaign seen outside of our personal networks and potentially reach new people that we might not have been able to reach before. Unfortunately, many indie theatre groups do a very bad job of using crowdfunding, and seem to see it as just another way to solicit donations. But crowdfunding doesn’t really work that way. Crowdfunding needs something more. But what would it take to make crowdfunding work for indie theatre?
