This fall, the Musicians Foundation was honored by the support of Rooftop Theatre Collaborative, who generously donated 20% of the proceeds from their October production of the musical “Tick, Tick… BOOM!” to the Foundation. Rooftop, a non-profit theatre group from Trenton, NJ, donates a fifth of the revenue from every show they produce to charity, and chose the Musicians Foundation for “Tick, Tick… BOOM!” because of its work supporting musicians who struggle through financial hardship. Jonathan Larson, the writer/composer of “Tick, Tick… BOOM!”, famously lived for years in poverty, waiting tables in New York City as he toiled on his magnum opus, the semi-autobiographical musical “Rent.” Larson tragically passed away on the evening before the first public performance of “Rent,” at the age of just 35.
On November 9, Jim Petro and Jaci d’Ulisse presented the Musicians Foundation with a check for $410.00. Thanks so much to Jim and Jaci for helping us keep American musicians from suffering the types of financial hardships that plagued Jonathan Larson!
