    Hello Leona and Richard!

    I have affordable props and furniture rentals for the NY Fringe Festival. I’ll work with your budget. Hey! Perhaps your show will be the next Urinetown and go to Broadway. I’ll do the props for that run too and we’ll both make lots of money.

    Transportation? No problem… Take the LIRR, walk across the street and carry back a box of hand props. Need furniture? For $50.00, my delivery man will bring most things to venues in NYC in his van or if you have “wheels,” drive 30 – 45 minutes to our Long Island warehouse and you can pick the things up.

    Call me at 516 – 459 – 0106 or shoot me an email. I’ll do my best to help make your production a big hit!

    Best,
    John
