“Rock of Ages” cast member Tad Wilson is spearheading what we hope will become a new theater tradition and would love for the fans to help!
Now, the theater community has had a time-honored phrase for wishing someone good luck –“Break a leg.” At a few of the recent Broadway openings, the casts of such shows as “Rock of Ages", “Next to Normal", "9 to 5" and "Waiting for Godot" have been presented with an artifical leg, signed by cast members and created for the occasion to ceremonially break before curtain.
“Broadway Legs” hopes to donate the signed legs to the silent auction at the Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS Grand Flea Market and Auction in late September, but – sorry about this joke, everyone – these legs cost an arm and a…well, you know.
Tad has acquired 10 “Rock of Ages” show posters signed by the entire Broadway cast and would like to give the fans here on The Cry of the Strip the first opportunity to purchase one for $50, with every penny going to purchase the materials for the project.
In essence…artificial limbs will be helping to save REAL lives. For information regarding the project or to reserve a poster for purchase (at the theater - cash only, please), please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
