WHAT'S COMING UP NEXT
JAMES BEAMAN CONTINUES AS CHARLIE DAVENPORT IN "ANNIE GET YOUR GUN" AT GOODSPEED OPERA HOUSE THROUGH JULY 3!
The show was warmly received by the press, and was nominated for six Connecticut Critics Circle Awards, winning two: Best Actress in a Musical: Jenn Gambatese, and Best Choreography: Noah Racey.
No blogging this week from Goodspeed, but wanted to share what's coming up for me beyond "Annie Get Your Gun."
JAMES BEAMAN WILL PERFORM IN SHAKESPEARE'S "TWO NOBLE KINSMEN" WITH TAFFETY PUNK THEATRE COMPANY AT THE FOLGER THEATER IN WASHINGTON, D.C., MONDAY, JULY 26.
I am happy to say that I will be participating in one of the most exciting projects of the Taffety Punk Theatre Company, the next in their Bootleg Shakespeare series.
I was lucky enough to be in the very first of these events, a production of "Cymbeline" which was one of the highlights of my career to date. The Bootleg concept is simple: assign a cast of talented, classically trained actors roles in a Shakespeare play, instruct them to learn their lines and report to the performance space the day of the show for a few brief hours of staging rehearsal with director Lise Bruneau, then perform the play before a packed house of enthusiastic Bardolators who got in for FREE. It is like being shot out of a canon. And the play comes magically and vitally to life. The next of the series will be "The Two Noble Kinsmen" and will be at the Folger Theatre in D.C. Monday July 26. More details to come! For more information on Taffety Punk Theatre Company: http://www.taffetypunk.com/
