the kickstarter campaign has received praise from discerning critics!

folks from the expertly devising 600 Highwaymen say:

“this kickstarter video has revived my faith in kickstarter! it is the best video of this genre i ever saw.
i usually watch those videos and cringe.
but yours, i watched TWICE! and i LAUGHED BOTH TIMES.”

alaina ferris, musicienne extraordinaire, says:
“‘Would formal you like to take a coffee with me?'”
I basically have a mad crush on you. There. I said it. I will give you money.”
even fashionistas enjoy! the effortlessly chic claire mazur of the uber hip of a kind writes:
“Impatiently awaiting as my favorite theatre-maker Eliza Bent prepares to bring her inimitable brand of comedy to an original production at the Bushwick Starr.”
