The View From Here #172: Fall, 2017

Running Hamlet lines along the back-roads of the Berkshires...


Hey Everybody! Happy holidays!

I am busier than I have ever been before! I have pretty much wiped “hanging out at karaoke bars” off of my list! I am doing my massive email campaigns four times a year now (I used to do them twice, and each time they’d take a month!). I’ve now got SEVEN one-man shows in repertory. (I performed six entirely different shows just this past fall, with six of them again on the list for this spring!) This fall I did 18 performances!! So far, there’s 15 now booked (plus appearances at two conferences) on the spring schedule!
Passing the Weinermobile in Colorado...!
It also happens that I am currently writing TWO new plays (A “Shakespeare Authorship” play and a Global Warming play!), and hoping to get them into some semblance of a shareable shape by the end of this holiday break!

In spite of being busier than ever, we’ve also taken a significant "HIT" as we shift to Not-For-Profit: our prices are lower, and, now, as an “employee" of the Timothy Mooney Repertory Theatre, about 25% of my “salary” gets held back in taxes. So, yikes!: We can use any help! If you’d like to snag that new tax deduction while supporting a great cause (As I hope you will notice, we’re having an impact out there!), these last couple weeks of the year is a great time to ride to the rescue!

We’re relaunching our fundraiser for this very last week of the year! Since last January it’s been posted at: https://www.generosity.com/education-fundraising/timothy-mooney-repertory-theatre , and there’s still about $5,000 to go to hit our previous goal. (We actually came close to that previous goal through the great folks who mailed us checks.) The amount that remains to finish up on-line just happens
to be just about as much as we need to pay for new swag (T-shirts! “Breakneck Julius Caesar” mugs!), conferences with teachers who still need to be introduced to these shows (if we hit our goal, I’ll be able to attend the January Modern Language Association National Conference in NYC), and general operating expenses that have lately accumulated on my credit card…!

So, on to the adventures!!

Last we talked, I was driving back from Canada, following a very successful summer run of “Breakneck Julius Caesar”! I did a quick turn-around, gearing up for the fall tour while observing (from the safe distance of the TV) three “500-year storms” hitting Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico in quick succession. (Global warming? Yes: A Thing.)

After five years off, I returned to emcee another edition of “Pathways Idol,” raising about $6,000 for “Pathways to a Better World,” which enables people to change their life to chase fully after their dreams. Which just happens to be what I’m working on with my life, too.

I won!
The next day, I was off to the races, once again, with a performance of “Breakneck Julius Caesar” at Herron High School in Indianapolis, for an audience of about 250 high school kids. It was an odd setting in a former church, with light streaming through stained-glass windows, a vast cubic-footage to fill with my voice and little opportunity to focus the attention of a mass of students who seemed already to have attention issues. BUT, they stuck with it all the way through to the end, and were mostly quiet, trying to get what this play was all about. And while this may not have been my best performance, two of of the acting students who been sitting toward the back, came up to give me a wonderful response.


Crossing paths with the leftover dregs of Hurricane Irma
On my way again, I had another performance the very next night in Danville, Kentucky. I’d been to Centre College once, perhaps ten years prior with Moliere than Thou, and a few of the faculty remembered it clearly as they brought me back, this time, for Julius Caesar.

I’ve had a lot of shows where English teachers bring me in with grandiose assumptions of a packed house, only to find myself playing to a group of 30-40 (if lucky), but this time around, there were over 300 students assembled for a packed house. Fortunately I videotaped it, and the Q&A afterwards, and several of those clips can be found on my YouTube page. 


I had one brief “down day” in Nashville, Tennessee, gearing up for the Educational Theatre Association conference, where my booth in the exhibit hall enjoyed really good traffic throughout the three day event, where this time my “customers” were teachers who might actually book me for shows at their schools.

Educational Theatre Association Conference
The next day, I zipped east, returning to a venue I’d last performed at WAY back in the very first year of my tour (Fall, 2002), at Tusculum College. The teachers, at least, still seemed to remember me from fifteen years prior, though there was just maybe 30 in attendance for Breakneck Hamlet this time around. Even so, they responded with love and enthusiasm, and were talking about bringing be back yet again (in hopefully something less than a 15-year turn-around). 

Crossing the hills of Eastern Tennessee
I raced on northeast, for my second appearance at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, this time with Shakespeare’s Histories. It was a relatively small audience, but I was really delighted to find a good balance of History, Theatre and English students had made up the crowd. This meant that each group saw this from some slight different angle, variously enjoying the excitement, the in-jokes and insight. I later commended the history teacher whose initiative had brought the show together to actually live the goal of hosting an “interdisciplinary” event. This review ("Mooney's energetic personality and portrayals took care of the rest... moving and speaking at whirlwind speed.") came out some two weeks later.

With just a few days off in the northeast, I found that my tour overlapped with the tour of one of my favorite (hilarious) performers, Roy Zimmerman, who had a show in Hartford, CT. I grabbed a hotel in Hartford and showed up for the show, with opportunity, after, to shake Roy’s hand. 

Catching the brilliant Roy Zimmerman!
I doubled back up to Massachusetts, with my first-ever performance at the Berkshire Academy. This time it was a showing of Breakneck Hamlet with a couple of workshops. Amid this lush southwest corner of Massachusetts, I got to walk the dirt roads (see the top of this page) for a bit while working on my lines. Once again, the turnout was great, and the students responded with enthusiasm. I went out for dinner and drinks with faculty right after the show, and was, the next morning, again, on my way.

The view along Interstate 91 in Connecticut
As I drove, reviews from the road would gradually catch up to me, and some great reactions from MCLA and the Berkshire School would appear on my screen. The Berkshire review headlined: "STUDENTS INSPIRED BY ONE-MAN SHOW, BREAKNECK HAMLET," calling it a "lightning fast sixty-minute version..." One student astonishingly revealed to the interviewer, "I actually stayed awake for the whole thing."  

After just a short weekend in Chicago, I went south once again, stopping briefly to visit my friend, Susan, in Carbondale, Illinois, before heading on down for a return visit to Texas Lutheran University, which ALSO last booked me perhaps ten years prior! This time around, though, cousins Kathy and Larry were now headed north, to visit my sister, our cousins and dad while I was performing about 10 miles away from their house!

Saville Dam in Connecticut
The Texas Lutheran performance of Lot o’ Shakespeare (also videotaped), found me confronted with a series of my most “shouty-screamy” monologues coming out of the Bingo cage one after the other (Comedy of Errors, Twelfth Night and Julius Caesar). I probably should have started exercising “veto power” early on, but hating to show I might not be ready to perform whatever challenge the fates might fling at me, I pushed my way through and 15 minutes into the show, I was already starting to lose my voice. At least one in the audience was generous enough to suggest that my voice had more “character” in those latter speeches.


Heading westward, again, I had two shows in Las Cruces, New Mexico! (Where I had not performed since my Moliere show at New Mexico State university back in 2004!) The folks at the No Strings Theatre Company had stopped, on a whim, to catch Breakneck Julius Caesar in Sanford, Florida, fell in love with it and brought me in to perform BOTH Breakneck Hamlet and Julius Caesar in one single day. 

It proved to be one of my longest workdays ever. Given that my voice had been in recovery for the three days following Lot o’ Shakespeare, I didn’t want to overdo drilling my lines. But the morning of the event, I got myself up at 6 a.m. drove to the theatre and ran lines for both shows. Following breakfast we did a rather long tech rehearsal for Hamlet leading up to the afternoon matinee, followed by another long tech rehearsal with barely a half of an hour to get into my costume before a full performance of Julius Caesar. (There was not much gas left in the tank after that.)

Rainbow in Monmouth, Illinois
As I drove three long days on back to Chicago, I noted “My GPS sounds very intolerant, as it tells me to “Stay straight on East Jewess 70…”

Meanwhile, off in Brooklyn, half-the-country-away, the theatre group, “Playwrights at the Grand” had a reading of my brief political show, DN & DT. I am told it went well, and the director just sent me the audio file of the dialogue which played in a recording to the house at large, reminding me of the inspiration that had struck me in the thick of the scandal when Devin Nunez violated his recusal from the Trump/Russia case. (Director: Chad Chenail, Actors: Parke Stevenson as DN, and Nico Papastefanou as DT)
Nice Poster! Thanks Monmouth!

I had a quick week of down-time before racing off to yet one more show at Monmouth College (which would be the fourth time for this ongoing tour). This time they were bringing me back for a workshop and a performance of Breakneck Julius Caesar.

The show felt pretty awesome, but there wasn’t a moment to rest. Once I’d packed up my stuff, I needed to head south, with about four hours under my wheels before I could grab a hotel. I might have caught five hours of sleep before working my way further south, through Kentucky and to Tennessee, for a mid-day rehearsal and an afternoon performance of Breakneck Hamlet for another packed house of over 300 very-much-tuned-in students, followed by yet another workshop.

The resort they put me up in in Georgia!
Yet again, I was driving from central Tennessee to the east, where this time a performance of Breakneck Hamlet was pending for some 200 kids and teachers at the Tennessee Educational Theatre Festival. I was performing in a huge auditorium, but the acoustics were amazing and I could feel my voice thankfully filling the room with almost no effort.

More of the Georgia resort

Finally, heading south, out of Tennessee, through North Carolina and into Georgia for my first-ever show at Young Harris College. Again, it was Breakneck Hamlet, this time for another very small audience (in a very large theatre), but this time my cousin Patti, who had never before seen me in performance, in the audience, which kept me that much more on my toes.


Moliere in Oklahoma
The following day, I drove the length of Tennessee (a huge state when you find yourself going east to west), catching a brief night in Memphis before continuing on through Arkansas to another return visit (yes, they seem to be about 75% “return visits” these days) to Southeast Oklahoma State University, where my pal, Aaron Adair was booking me yet once again. It was yet another performance of Moliere than Thou (the same show they’d booked me for last time around), and another small audience, though this time there were a handful of ladies who had not been able to catch my last visit some five years prior, and who seemed to get into it every bit as much as the students did. (They bought t-shirts and books afterwards.)
Posing with Klaws at U-Northern Colorado

Continuing my lap of the country, I pushed myself on west to Greeley, Colorado at Northern Colorado University. Yet again it was Moliere than Thou, and I finally got to meet up with Michael White, a playwright who’s show (Murder in the Men’s Store) I’d produced over 20 years prior. (My voice, at this point, barely holding together.)

Birthday performance!
I got back to Chicago in time for my birthday, and, holding a party at April’s house, I videotaped another “Facebook Fundraiser,” performing monologues for folks who were watching (and occasionally donating) on-line. I enjoyed hanging out with some friends that I hadn’t seen for a while, including Sabra Steurmer, who was in town all the way from Chattanooga, Tennessee!

A scant few days later, I was back once again on the road down to Indy, performing Breakneck Hamlet for the Christel House, which had me out to do Lot o’ last year. I performed for a small group of students who seemed unaccustomed to somebody performing such intense material in costume with passion. They seemed somewhat uncertain as to how they might want to take the experience.

Rock star
Once more to Kentucky! (I feel like I’m going in circles) For yet another repeat performance, at Georgetown College, where my cousin, George McGee, teaches theatre, hosting me for yet another Breakneck Hamlet for an assembly of perhaps 100 students. And though the auditorium was large, and the students were scattered throughout the large space, the response was quite warm, with the exception, perhaps, of the teacher who buttonholed me after (on my way to sell books at my table), to argue whether or not Hamlet did indeed “have his proof” following Claudius’ startled reaction during the play-within-the-play. 
Poster at Georgetown College!

About a month later, this review appeared in the Georgetown College student paper. A brief excerpt:

"Mooney was able to breathe new life into a centuries-old synopsis... It was his seamless blend into character that captivated the audience for about an hour... It was still the same Hill Chapel, and yet through Mooney's commanding, confident body language and precise vocal inflection, he was able to transform it into a throne room, into another country entirely... 'Breakneck Hamlet' was a deeply compelling, wondrous performance by only one man. He created a new love for Hamlet in his audience, reminding everyone 'there are many more things in Heaven and Earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.'" (Rachel Cheatham, The Georgetonian) 

Me and Cousin George in Georgetown!
I had a great visit with Cousin George and Cathy (my hosts for the event), as well as their son, Tim, who made it out to the play with his fiancé, Hannah, before again pushing south to Marietta Georgia, where my old friend, Lori Etheridge, was hosting The Greatest Speech of All Time at her Methodist Church for an intimate luncheon.

I was now working on the final fumes of my voice, driving on east through Greenville, South Carolina, dropping in on Hollyi Hall, an old friend from the South Carolina Misanthrope production (now almost ten years past) and visiting my artist-buddy, David Jensen in Raleigh, before proceeding farther east than I thought North Carolina quite went for a show in the town, Oriental, a small fishing/shrimping/crabbing/tourist town just this side of the Atlantic Ocean.


The people were charming and very supportive, but, now, in my 18th performance of the fall, my voice was not quite responding with the recovery time I had come to depend on (possibly because all my stops in-between found me engaging in animated conversations along the way).

Tim and Isaac, together again
No one in that theatre was quite fooled into thinking that my voice was full strength, yet I somehow managed to muscle my way through the ten thousand words, and the viewers still managed to laugh and shout in all the right places. (All the characters “sounded like frogs, but each frog had a slightly different attitude!”)

Working east, I had yet one more stop in Detroit for a dinner with Isaac, and then back to Chicago, in time for Thanksgiving, and YET ANOTHER email campaign, this time in even faster record time: 15,000 emails in 14 days!

The seven-day beard
While home, with two months before my next performance, I let my beard grow out for a while, and found myself a little disturbed to find that it was now growing in about 50% grey. (My picture of Dorian Gray had finally caught up with me.)
The 14-day beard

I applied for more fringes! I was NOT picked for the Tampa Fringe Fest, nor the Orlando Fringe. (I may yet get into Orlando via a BYO-Venue opportunity.) But I did apply for the Indy Fringe Festival, which is NOT dependent on a lottery (first-come-first-served), so I’m “IN” and also for the Minnesota Fringe, where I was able to apply TWICE for two different tiers (which I think ups my odds to about 75% probability of getting in).

Happy Christmas, my friends! And, again, if you’ve something to spare, your donations are warmly accepted.
