Broadway star Jason Danieley (Pretty Woman, The Visit, Curtains) has launched a Kickstarter campaign to release a live album preserving the final concert performances he gave with his late wife, three-time Tony nominee Marin Mazzie. The concerts, entitled Broadway and Beyond, were given in May 2017 at Feinstein's/54 Below.
Contributors to the campaign can select a number of rewards based on the size of their donation, including digital and physical copies of the album and listed credit in the album's liner notes. To donate to the campaign, click here.
The show featured songs the two had performed on the Broadway stage (including from such shows as Ragtime, Passion, The Full Monty, The Visit, and Kiss Me, Kate), as well as cabaret and concert staples.
The campaign has a goal of $20,000, nearly 75% of which was raised in the campaign's first 18 hours. Donations can be pledged through March 23 at 3:46 PM EDT. Funds will go toward such production costs as mixing studio rentals, producing and musician fees, engineering, and manufacturing.
Following a three-year battle with ovarian cancer, Mazzie died at age 57 September 13, 2018. Her three decade-long career on Broadway included performances in Passion, Ragtime Kiss Me, Kate, Man of La Mancha, Spamalot, Bullets over Broadway, and The King and I. Mazzie and Danieley, who married in 1997, appeared on Broadway together in Next to Normal, succeeding original stars Alice Ripley and J. Robert Spencer in 2010. The pair also appeared regularly alongside each other in concert performances.
