Bowtie Boy has been trekking around philly for 3 years. He enjoys theatre, beer gardens and intellectual conversations that lead nowhere. When he's not free-lancing his social media management and digital marketing strategies, he's at home in his underwear watching Dr. Who and eating Reese's puffs.
I have a confession, I find talent sexier than abs, but when the talent has abs, l don't complain! So you can imagine my joy when I got to talk to the uber talented pairing of Garrett Olthuis and Sean Green at Ultimo Coffee Bar (seriously this place has Beer, it was amazing.)
The reason for our meeting was to discuss their upcoming fundraiser "Raised."
So guys, what's the Fundraiser for?
We're debuting our first show this September during FRINGE, and to make our dream a reality we need to raise not only some money, but awareness as well! We're bringing something totally unique to Fringe and we want the community to know!
What can you tell me about Raised?
Well we started conceptualizing the fundraiser in January, and now our 6 person show is ready to "take flight." The show is comprised of all friends and instructors at Flaunt Fitness and we've been practicing for four solid months. The dedication these artist have to their show is insane, broken toes, pinched shoulder and dislocated
Ya! A handful of us are aerialists!
What else do you have up your sleeves?
We just finished setting up the space of Franky Bradley's! We'll be making use of Lyra, Hammock, Harness, a Pole.
So your Fundraiser is at Franky Bradley's will your Fringe show take place there too?
We'll actually be performing by the Art Museum!
So when is the Fundraiser?
This Friday! Doors at 7, Show is at 8... $12 tickets online and then $15 at the door.
Raised is a good opportunity to get your hormones in check, think nude speedo! when you get to Grounded, you'll find a more mature show filled with stunts that will amaze you.
At the fundraiser there will be a 50/50 with a cash prize AND 6 tickets will be raffled off for special seating at the September Fringe Show
