Tim in “A Christmas Pudding”

It’s been pretty quiet around here lately, but Tim posted some great news on Instagram today. “A Christmas Pudding” has returned this year, and Tim will once again be a member of the cast! And with yet another White Collar reunion of sorts, the cast also features Sharif Atkins and his wife, Bethany (who is a White Collar “Harvard Crew” alum herself)!

The show features stories, songs, and more – and you’ll have two chances to catch it this year if you’re in the southern California area. The first show is on Friday, December 15 at 7pm at Westwood Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles, and the second show is on Saturday, December 16 at 7pm at St. Augustine By-the-Sea in Santa Monica, CA. Admission is $25 (or $5 for kids under 16), and the show benefits PATH (People Assisting the Homeless).

Here’s Tim’s Instagram post with the flyer for the show. Hopefully some of you are able to go see Tim, Sharif, Bethany, and the rest of the cast!

Great cause, great cast, great night filled with Christmas stories and songs!

A delicious Christmas Pudding

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.

‘Kiss Me Kate’ Premiere at Pasadena Playhouse

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!
