Brilliant young director of RII seeks funding for new project


Jim Manganello is raising money for his Chicago production of War and Peace. Supporting Manganello's project is quick and easy using Kickstarter -- and how often do you get a chance to personally affirm artistic brilliance? See our reviews of Manganello's production of Shakespeare's Richard II at: http://oberonshakespearestudygroup.blogspot.com/2009/11/alexandra-clement-jones-plays-richard.html and at: http://oberonshakespearestudygroup.blogspot.com/2009/10/review-of-fridays-performance-of.html

Oberon will financially support this project and encourages readers to do the same. Jim Manganello sent this message on March 23, 2011:

Many thanks for promoting War and Peace on Kickstarter. I've been telling everybody, W&P really started with Richard II -- we're growing on relationships forged there and ideas that stewed around. And it's another grand epic in which humanity pushes through the surface of power. We need whatever help we can get.
