Today is Swing Day at “Take Me Out”!
Today, swings take over two roles at “Take Me Out”! Bill Ledbetter, who currently provides the voiceovers for William R. Danziger and the reporter, will step into the role of Toddy, while I will be covering for the role of Davey Battle, in addition to my regular role as Rodriguez.
This is for one day only! Shows today (25 January, Saturday) are at 2pm and 8pm at the Alliance Francaise Theatre (1 Sarkies Rd, Singapore 258130, near Newton MRT station). Tickets are available at the door. Even if you’ve seen the show before, here’s another excuse to see the show again!
“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.
