You read that right, the Fabulous RIP TORN will be joining us at The Players Club Tuesday, October 4 for our Benefit Reading of William Shakespeare's JULIUS CAESAR!
Mr Torn, internationally known and widely beloved for his film and television work (MEN IN BLACK, THE LARRY SANDERS SHOW, and one of my all-time favorite films, PAYDAY) will be gracing the stage as the Emperor himself, Julius Caesar. I have been pinching myself all day.
Also joining the cast is the wonderful RYAN TRAMONT, a long time Frog & Peach Co member and most recently seen on screen in THE HURT LOCKER. If you missed his transcendent HAMLET, we hope to give you another chance soon.
You know, each performer in the Cast of Julius Caesar--Rip, Jeffrey, the lovely Ms Parsons, my sweet Austin, Michael, and Ryan--each of them is known as an Actor's Actor; each fascinating to watch in whatever they do; each determined to set us up a glass to see the nobility, suffering, and fear inside our fellow man, and ourselves. That takes tremendous skill and courage--it is the kind of artistry we all aspire to at Frog & Peach, and I'm humbled by the opportunity to work with each of them.
