Help make the revival a reality ― and
receive a special CD of the Original Cast Album!
On October 1st and 2nd 2012, special "industry" staged concert readings were held at New York's prestigious York Theatre Company. The effort, funded by funds raised through Kickstarter.com, was a huge success. The video below was created to publicize that Kickstarter fundraising event.
We are now in the process of contacting producers - "following up" on our successful readings. Since follow-ups cost money also, we are still accepting donations of any amount to help us in this effort. All donors of $25 or more will receive a specially produced CD of the now rare Original Cast Album, audio enhanced for digital quality. This item is available nowhere else.
Did you miss our successful Kickstarter campaign? Here's your chance to still contribute and receive a special reward
Our Kickstarter.com project closed on January 6, 2012 with a total of $32,215 pledged to our effort to revive Man with a Load of Mischief. It was a great campaign, but it had a cutoff date after which no further pledges could be made. If you would like to join in the effort to bring this classic musical-theater treasure back, you can help by donating directly, on the right.
Why the need for more funding?
Additional funds will help ensure that we reach producers and backers through mailings, publicity, special events, etc.
Donations are non-tax-deductible.

“Artistically/esthetically/intellectually satisfying and entertaining… I brought a friend along on my 2nd ticket. She has had experience with all aspects of Broadway and the theater. She LOVED your play, saying it was amongst the most enjoyable she'd ever seen. She loved the intelligent dialogue and lyrics, the clever, subtle and not-so-subtle sarcastic humor, and agreed entirely with my abbreviated description of the play as ‘unusually intelligent, wonderful fun.’” — M.

“Truly a wonderful piece! The music is beautiful, the
lyrics clever and the book endearing. Here's to a future run!”
“Loved it! I was particularly mesmerized by Robert
Petkoff's performance as the Man. His character has all the best songs,
and he certainly put them over. I am now obsessed with the song Come to
the Masquerade. I have been listening to the CD quite a bit since
Tuesday but have listened to that song more than most. The entire cast was
quite charming, and I thought the staged reading was brilliantly

Mischief! I am playing the CD right now…Congratulations!”

first-rate, and the music was lilting and memorable. Kudos!”

love. It's lasted for days.”

last night. It's a delightful score!”
