Andrew Simpson (from DC)
Seen below are, from L to R: me, Andrew Simpson, and Joe Yransky (the first "Y" is silent, BTW):
Coming up next at the MTMM series (Weds'es at 2:30pm in Feb) are Frederick Hodges (CA) and David Drazin (Chicago).
Have booked two showing in May (5/1 and 5/2 at 1:30) of a repeat of the Bert Williams program. It will include Fish, Natural Born Gambler, plus the first 10 mins of the work-in-progress assembly of the unreleased BW film that was shown in raw unedited takes at the Feb 2 show. Anyone who missed the Feb 2 show and is available for the repeats should come. The prints are incredibly sharp and, seen on a big screen at the right speed, really show Williams's talents.
Sunday's Silent Clowns show was a big hit...especially considering it was Chaplin. We've often had lite turnouts for Chaplin programs, but we had a pretty full house. Hopefully we'll do well with our next, a program of Langdon comedies.
Am looking forward to some downtime...have been performing almost daily for two weeks, and the Langdon show is Feb 24. Week of 2/24 finds me with 7 shows in 6 days: Langdon, Wings, and Ben Hur, plus 4 Immigrant shows at AMMI. Have some recording to do in the next week or so (more about that when I can talk about it).
See you at the silents!
