“Similar in format to an old time melodrama, with fourth wall breaking and winks to the audience aplenty, this play is fresh and filled with memorable and likeable [sic] characters.”

    Death and McCootie

    Aaron J. DiPiazza

    We gave our fantastic composer, Aaron DiPiazza, a daunting task; write us some music that would fit in a 1940s film noir detective flick, but that also has a light, humorous tone to go with our play’s comedic style. In other words, we wanted something nostalgic, but also serious, but also fun. 

    This…was not an easy task.

    But we had the right person! Aaron wrote two pieces for us. This is the first. What do you think? Did he nail the impossible, or what??

      Great Bouncing Bogart! Death and McCootie is hosting its first fundraiser event—a “SpinRaiser” at SoulCycle TriBeCa, “Voted best hit-each-body-part fitness class” (New York Magazine).

      JUST THE FACTS, MA’AM

      The Whoozit: SoulCycle TriBeCa @ 103 Warren Street (b/t Greenwich and the West Side HWY)

      The Whatzit: “Whisk(ey)” your body into “killer” shape by “smoking” the calories while “betting” on good theatre (and giving us a reason to “detect” more ways to include “deathly” phrases into our posts). SoulCycle’s full-body workout has revolutionized indoor cycling and taken the world of fitness by storm. Combining inspirational coaching and high-energy music played on the best new gramophones, SoulCycle  offers an engaging workout that benefits both the mind and the body (and also, in this case, Death and McCootie). 

      The Whenzit:Sunday, June 30th, at 3:30pm (class is 45 minutes)

      The Howzit: Check out the options available below and choose your poison. There are only 31 bikes available, so it’s a first come, first served kind of affair. (Your spot will be confirmed when you receive a confirmation email from P.I. Theatrical.) If you donate just to find the class has already filled up, we’ll give you the option of getting your money back, or you can be added to the wait list. (Heck, you could also put that money in as a straight donation to the show. We don’t mind, and you’d get some swell perks.)

      Here’s what you get for SpinRaising with the Death and McCootie crew. Just click the “DONATE” amount to send your donation and reserve your spot:

      DONATE $45 - 45 minute Spin Class, shoe rental, towel, bottle of water, refreshments after the class

      ***48-HOUR SPECIAL!*** DONATE $25 - 45 minute Spin Class, shoe rental, towel, bottle of water, refreshments after the class

      DONATE $50 - Everything above + choose your bike location in studio

      DONATE $75 - Everything above + Official Death and McCootie poster signed by the cast and writers*

      DONATE $100 - Everything above + canvas Death and McCootie bag, including some candy smokes, a bottle of hooch, and some exclusive Death and McCootie stationery. 

      (*Poster will be mailed at a later date)

      The Whyzit:Because not supporting new theatre is a huge mistake.  

      ——-

      Got questions? Got concerns? You probably should! And if you do, don’t hesitate to contact us! We’re incredibly excited about the fundraising progress we’ve made so far, and with your help, we’re looking forward to starting rehearsals in a few weeks. Please follow us in the social media space for more extra-special Death and McCootie news and announcements!

      “This is hands down the best contest in the history of all time and space.”
      Franklin D. Roosevelt, who loves (or at least loved) our new contest!

      Between now and 11:59pm on Saturday, June 1, anyone who donates any amount to Death and McCootie will be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win 2 tickets to our Opening Night performance and 2 tickets to the super swanky Opening Night party!

      And if you already donated? Donate again! Giving any amount makes you eligible for this sweepstakes, so the price is up to you!

      And if you already donated enough to snag 2 show tickets and 2 Opening Night super swanky party tickets? You can win 2 more of each! Then you could go on a date with three people instead of just one person!

      And if you don’t donate by 11:59pm on Saturday, June 1? Then you miss out! Because someone’s going to win this super duper prize package from Death and McCootie! 

      Head over to our Donate page to make a donation and enter for your chance to win: http://bit.ly/17AMqZa

      (Note: Prize does not include airfare, hotel, or any other item of a valuable nature. Just the 2 show tickets and the 2 party passes.)
