We’re down to the FINAL TWO SHOWS of “Take Me Out” here in Singapore! This is your last chance to see the show that has been described as “excellent and extremely bold,” “robustly satisfying,” “pleasurably intense,” and “a solid win”!

After an enjoyable and successful post-show audience talkback session last night, we’ve got another one scheduled for tonight! So if you’d like to ask some questions about the pre-production and production of “Take Me Out,” then stick around after the performance.

Student tickets are also still on for tonight! You can purchase a maximum of 2 tickets per ID at the door for only $40 each. (Note that“Take Me Out” is rated R18 by the MDA for homosexual content and nudity.)

The final two shows of “Take Me Out” at the Alliance Francaise Theatre (1 Sarkies Rd, Singapore 258130, near Newton MRT station) are tonight, 30 January, and tomorrow night, 31 January, at 8pm. Tickets are available at SISTIC and at the door!

“Take Me Out” stars  Juan Jackson as Darren Lemming, Hayden Tee as Mason Marzac, Tim Garner as Kippy Sunderstrom, Chris Bucko as Shane Mungitt, Paul Lucas as Skipper, Seth Adams as Toddy Koovitz, Kynan Francis as Jason Chenier, Johnny James as Davey Battle, Ren Robles as Rodriguez, Jejie Esguerra as Martinez, and Hiro Mizuhara as Takeshi Kawabata.“Take Me Out” is directed by Paul Lucas and produced by Tim Garner Productions.

Darren Lemming, the star centre fielder of the world champion New York Empires, is young, rich, famous, talented, handsome and so convinced of his popularity that when he casually announces he’s gay, he assumes the news will be readily accepted by everyone. It isn’t. Friends, fans and teammates react with ambivalence, and when the slipping Empires call up the young phenom Shane Mungitt to close their games, the ambivalence turns to violence. Angry, lonely, guilt-ridden and confused, Darren finds some unlikely solace in the form of friendship with his new business manager, Mason Marzac-a brilliant but repressed guy, who, as everyone around him copes with disenchantment, blooms in the ecstatic discovery of baseball.
