WHAT IS “LIVE FROM QUARANTINE?” WATCH VIDEO--> https://youtu.be/AixML0gpG_A
Audiences purchase virtual tickets and donate tips to gain viewing access to each one-time-only, intimate broadcast. Now a well oiled machine with over 30 virtual events under its belt, LFQ has helped put $61,787 in the pockets of 410 unemployed artists previously seen on broadway, national tours, TV, film, circus, regional theatres, and nightclubs worldwide since covid19’s abrupt shutdown of the live event industry. This benefit show directly benefits the artists it features (or an organization of the artist’s choice). Additionally, Table Top Broadway donates a portion of every ticket sold to Black Lives Matter, policy-reform organizations, victim memorial funds, bail funds, and Black LGBTQ organizations such as the Black Trans Advocacy Coalition and G.L.I.T.S.

All featured artists will be compensated for appearing on the live stream. On average, each artist takes home $160 for their appearance. Numbers are based on ticket sales and donations received. At minimum, each artist receives a clean split of the cast’s virtual tip pool (average of $65 each) However, we’ve had several artists earn over $2,000 from their time on LFQ! Savvy promoters can expect to match those numbers! Here’s how it works: each artist will be provided an individualized smart link to the ticketing site that will automatically track their influence and pay them an $8 commission for every viewer they bring in. There is no cap, no minimum! The more people you get to tune in, the more money you earn! (Example: Influencing 1000 viewers = $8,000 paid) PLUS you will get your share of tip pool on top of that! We will provide you with everything you need - graphics, blurbs, articles, hashtags, video, tips from alumni - all the PR you’ll need so that you can share it with your friends, family, and followers without stress. It’s really a team effort and we’re here for eachother every step of the way!
In addition to the show donating to vital organizations and helping unemployed artists, many alumni pledge donate a portion of their earnings to a second organization of their choice, creating this amazing triple layer cake of a community relief project that we can all be so proud of! We’d like to continue this mission until our industry is back on its feet and hope you will consider being a part of our grassroots team!
