Think of it as local, sustainable art; thirteen events in 2013, written, produced or curated by me to share with the Orlando community and online around the world. 45 local artists - actors, musicians, directors, tech people, writers, chefs - will work with me on this project, and if can we show local theaters and music venues that audiences really do want original plays and hear musicians playing their own compositions, maybe we'll see more investment in local, original arts. Come play with us! ~ Joseph Reed Hayes
