Advance audiences are raving: DANIEL IN BABYLON is a theatrical spectacle as great as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. DANIEL is a musical every member of the family will enjoy—from the youngest children to elderly grandparents. Like Fiddler on the Roof and The Sound of Music, DANIEL is classic feel-good entertainment that community theatres will produce for decades. Guaranteed: youll be singing these songs with a smile in your heart.
A production for the Internet generation, DANIEL is headed to Broadway and community theatres by way of Kickstarter.com, a platform the musicals composer and lyricist Lenny Solomon believes is the ideal first stage.
Kickstarter.com is a funding platform for creative projects, Solomon explains. This is a website where projects are crowd-funded. Investors can participate for as little as $2 and can donate as much as they want from there.
The musical has been written, says Solomon. ”The way Kickstarter.com works, we have thirty days to fund this project and bring DANIEL to life with full cast and orchestra, a book and a publishable score that any organization can use to produce the show.”
Kickstarter describes the process this way:
At this very second, thousands of people are checking out projects on Kickstarter. They’re rallying around their friends’ ideas, backing projects from people they’ve long admired, and discovering things that make them laugh and smile. Every project is independently crafted, put to all-or-nothing funding, and supported by friends, fans, and the public in return for rewards.
In Solomons case, to raise funding to produce the cast album for DANIEL IN BABYLON, he is offering digital song downloads to investors. People who pledge $2 pledge or more will receive the song In the Lions Den. Investors who pledge $5 or more will get two song downloads, In the Lions Den and Seeds. Those who pledge $10 or more will be able to download ten songs from the show, etc.
I hope everyone who loves the story of Daniel, who has been touched and inspired by the lessons of Daniel, who wants their children and friends to share the joy of faith and the pleasure of the personal journey to a life with God, will contribute to this production. I wrote this musical for you and I cant wait to share it with you, says Solomon.
