The legend of Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and their Scientology-approved, celebrity-fueled marriage made for one of the better shows of 2013. Now “The TomKat Project” (which played at the New York International Fringe Festival this summer after an 18-week sold out run in Chicago earlier in the year) is headed to Hollywood next month. Writer-performer Brandon Ogborn and his Chicago-based cast are looking to raise $15,000 to fund the West Coast production. If ever a bare-bones storefront show from Chicago deserved to make its mark in LA, this funny, biting satire of celebrity gone mad is it. Those compelled to contribute can visit "TomKat"'s Kickstarter page. So far the cast is about a third of the way there and their Kickstarter deadline is next Wednesday.
