Making Porn Production History

BackButton.gif

Making Porn has played in every major city in America and some cities multiple times. Also, Italy, Australia and Canada.
 

Making Porn had it's world premiere in Chicago in July of 1995 at the Theatre Building. The original title was supposed to be "Six People Making Porn". The first production featured no porn stars. The actors were paid 50 dollars a piece for the entire run. There was no money for advertising. There was no advance press or publicity. The poster was done at Kinkos for 11 cents a copy. A cheap, photocopied, black and white poster was plastered all over the city with the image above of Eric Jirak as Jack Hawk.

 

The first preview was sold-out. The reviews were horrible. More sold-out shows. Everytime a bad review came out our ticket advance grew. More performances were added. Then it went to LA...then Palm Springs...San Diego and eventually in 1996...New York. The week before the show opened Off-Broadway at the Actors Playhouse there was no advance at the box office and the landlords considered posting a 4 week notice before the show even opened...then, 500 Performances Off-Broadway!
