Happy New Year! Yes, yes, I know it’s been too long since I last posted, and for that, I’m truly sorry. For those of you seeking news about my theatrical exploits, wait no longer: here’s the dish:
I’m in a fully sold-out comedy on the boards of Taproot Theatre in the beautiful Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle. I defy you to purchase tickets. Can’t be done. They’re all sold. Unless you want a standing room ticket (those with arthritic knees/hips need not apply.)
Adapted from the famous “Jeeves and Wooster” stories of British humorist P.G. Wodehouse, Margaret Raether’s “Jeeves in Bloom” follows the hapless Bertie Wooster and his ‘gentleman’s gentleman’ Jeeves (portrayed by, well, me) and their misadventures in the gardens of an English country manor.
Some reviews, for your perusal:
The Seattle Times: ‘Jeeves in Bloom’ a valentine to Wodehouse fans.
Seattle PI: Jeeves Definitely Blooms
Examiner.com: Taproot Lightens up Winter Gloom
Edgeseattle.com: Jeeves in Bloom
To have a show sell out is a real privilege, and I have truly enjoyed bringing our version of Sir Wodehouse and Mrs. Raether’s ‘Jeeves and Wooster’ to the Seattle community.
There are projects on the horizon. Stay tuned (or, maybe check back in a couple weeks) for more!
