When You Fall Down- a Buster Keaton Musical

PostWed Jul 26, 2017 4:50 am

Hello everyone!
I am an actor, who is a both a Damfino and Blinking Buzzard!
Buster Keaton is a huge inspiration to me as a performer and for many years I have been meaning to write a stage show that tells his story.
Where I am (in the UK) there is just not enough awareness of Buster's work in the general public and I would love to bring awareness of his life and films to a whole new audience.
I have written "When You Fall Down"- a one man musical that tells Buster's story from 1917-1928. I am honoured to say it will be premiering at the International Buster Keaton Convention in Michigan in October 2017. It also already has an invite to the Edinburgh Fringe festival in 2018.
This is a passion project for me and also completely not for profit. So far all my own funds have been used to create the show, but I do need help with the finishing details.
If you are interested in backing the show, or you'd like to know, please visit my kickstarter page, where you can listen to a demo of one of the songs. I also have rewards available in return for support!

Or if you know someone who you think would be interested in helping get this show off the ground, I'd be really grateful if you could pass the information on!
Many thanks,
James Dangerfield

James, I imagine you've already posted this on whatever social media the Damfinos use.

James may not have noticed yet, but this has funded. It's no excuse not to contribute , of course. He may need to buy some liniment after the pratfalls he should take on stage!
