Swing Day was a SUCCESS!
I had an amazing time playing Davey Battle for both shows yesterday. It was definitely a rush, and something I hope to do in the future. It felt great finally being able to share scenes and lines with Juan Jackson and Tim Garner. Fantastic. Bill Ledbetter was also amazing as Toddy Koovitz. Great night all around!
We’re back to our regular cast starting tonight as we pull into our LAST FIVE SHOWS! Come see the show that has been described as “excellent and extremely bold,” “robustly satisfying,” “pleasurably intense,” and “a solid win”! “Take Me Out” is running at the Alliance Francaise Theatre (1 Sarkies Rd, Singapore 258130, near Newton MRT station) until 31 January, with shows every night (except Monday, 27 January) at 8pm. Tickets are available at SISTIC!
“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.
