They are planning on holding this opera in both Houston and NYC.
Right now there are 22 supporters of this project. 22 people in the entire planet who want to see a opera honoring Bum Phillips.
I would be sad if we couldn't get any more supporters than that. The interface to donate to the project only takes a little bit of time.
The Producing Artistic Director of the project, Luke Leonard, is a Cy Creek grad who now lives in NYC. He has met with Bum about the project, and Bum is good with it (his only condition is that it was handled respectfully). Bum sees it as an opportunity to promote the Bum Phillips Charities he works with though his church.
