My friend PL and I were foolish enough to decide to book a flight to LA to go see A Christmas Pudding. It was a small venue, probably no more than 100 seats, and we made sure to arrive early. So early in fact that we ran into Elisa who was checking the microphones, but we got the best seats. Front raw, and what later appeared to be right in front of Tim during the entire show.
The show, a creation of David Birney is made of a variety of texts, from Hamlet to Fruit Cake Recipes, that were read by David Birney, Anne Cioffi, Charles Cioffi, Tim DeKay, Michele Roberge, Ned Schmidtke and Elisa Taylor. The readings were interspersed by Christmas carols sung by a choir.
Like previous years, Tim and Elisa will participate to A Christmas Pudding “A holiday confection of songs, stories, poems, and tales of the seasons”, at the Westwood Presbytarian Church in Los Angeles, Saturday 13th December.
Yesterday, Tim attended the premiere of “Kiss Me, Kate” at the Pasadena Playhouse, in part to show support for his White Collar castmate (and Tony Award-winning legend), Ms. Diahann Carroll, who was honored with the Pasadena Playhouse’s 2014 Diversity Award. Also in attendance was White Collar creator and showrunner, Jeff Eastin.
I’ve added ten photos of Tim, Jeff, and Ms. Carroll to the gallery – I’ll add more if I come across any!
While searching for images from this event, I also found photos of the whole DeKay family attending a screening of Guardians of the Galaxy at Ziegfeld Theater on July 29. I’ve added those to the gallery as well!
