Kara Goldin and Hint, Inc. Support a New Off-Broadway Musical, R.R.R.E.D., Highlighting an Inclusive Message to the World


There's no question that Silicon Valley executives have good instincts.
They've essentially built a portfolio of wealth to rival the last
centuries' industrial revolutionaries. And while female executives are
indeed minorities, they are also the visionary forces behind many huge
successes. One of the investors and associate producer of the new play R.R.R.E.D.,
Kara Goldin, founder and CEO of hint, Inc. is a premiere
example of this positive trend.

A disruptor by nature, Goldin and her company have always been avid
supporters of the music industry. More recently, they stepped into
another genre of the arts helping to bring the irreverent story of R.R.R.E.D.
to life at the DR2 Theatre in New York City. The vibrant
musical about the extinction of redheads officially opens Sunday, August
19 (previews started July 28th).

"I am very interested in supporting entrepreneurs of a less traditional
type. R.R.R.E.D.'s Director Andy Sandberg and writer Katie
Thompson had a message I could relate to (as a natural redhead)," says
Goldin. "While many people are investing in startups, supporting the
arts is important because it can change the way people think about a
topic—or, in this case, redheads. I started my career in journalism,
I've always appreciated the power of the written word. All the better
when it comes alive."

After building AOL's shopping and E-commerce platform into a $1 billion
enterprise, Goldin was inspired by her desire for a healthier lifestyle
to create the leading, award-winning, no-sweetener flavored water, as
well as a newly launched oxybenzone and paraben-free sunscreen. Goldin
has become an iconic consumer advocate, she thoroughly
looks at problems (starting with her own), and provides solutions—it's a
winning combination of passion and purpose.

"Theater is about storytelling, it informs and moves people. While R.R.R.E.D.
gets its message across in a fun, enjoyable way, you can see how you can
drop other topics in here that may be facing extinction or prejudice and
get people to recognize other challenges that we may be facing in the

No doubt, R.R.R.E.D. encapsulates Goldin's appreciation for the
arts, an inspiring story and hair color, but this entrepreneur from San
Francisco also knows a good investment!

a book by Adam Jackman, Katie Thompson and Patrick Livingston,
began performances on July 28, 2018, and officially opens on August 19. R.R.R.E.D.

By the year 2100, the recessive gene that causes red-hair may cease to exist.
Now, in the year 2018, a secret redheaded revolutionary organization is
taking matters into their own hands, fighting back against their
imminent extinction and standing up for the rights of redheads

"Having this chance to ‘spread the R.R.R.E.D.' Off-Broadway is a
dream come true," said R.R.R.E.D. creators Katie Thompson,
Adam Jackman
and Patrick Livingston. "And we can't imagine a
better team of redhead-allies to bring our misfit revolution to the
