As for Houston, the producer is from Houston. He wants it to be here. They are hoping that staging it in NYC, they can get bigger level funding for a larger production in Houston, and then perhaps bigger than that if successful.
The $20,000 isn't the entire amount for the staging. They need that amount to show interest so that other grants go through. They don't get the fan cash, they don't get the extra money.
Right on! I'm in for this stage of the project as well. Thanks for the explanation.
