Oz in the News 1.4.15

Screen-Shot-2015-01-02-at-2.27.32-PM‘Bluebirds’ at Guild Hall Nears Kickstarter Goal, But Time Is Running Out  Joe Brondo has more than $6,000 in pledges on Kickstarter for the presentation of his original play at Guild Hall, but if he doesn’t reach his $7,000 goal by the January 8 deadline, his effort won’t receive any of the money.  The play is a about a computer repairman in the Hamptons who steals a valuable book from a client’s house, and plans to sell it for a big payday, Brondo explains. But when his wife finds out about his plans, she tries to stop him. The book is a first edition of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, autographed by L. Frank Baum with an inscription for President Teddy Roosevelt. While there is no evidence that Baum ever signed a book for Roosevelt, Brondo says he did his research and, based on the age of Roosevelt’s children when the book was published it is conceivable that Baum would have sent a copy to the White House.  The Bluebirds Kickstarter deadline is Thursday, January 8, at 4:17 p.m.
