“The production’s all-male cast hits the ball out of the park…The ensemble is uniformly strong… Jimmy Hennigan plays Shane Mungitt… It’s a multi-layered fine performance that plays an important role in the play…Richard Issacs.. gives a gripping dramatic performance…Mason Marzak’s (Tom Flatt)… scene-stealing monologue about why he has become a baseball fan – is simply riveting…Darren Lemming …does a nice job of making you feel something for his character…Director Matthew Randall’s direction is impeccable…I applaud Dominion Stage for taking the risk and thinking outside the box. The very talented ensemble will make your night in the theatre a very enjoyable one. This funny and powerful Take Me Out has a lot to say about the effect the game, the high salaries and politics have on the players. Dominion Stage’s Take Me Out should not be missed.” Elliot Lanes, MD Theatre Guide
Take Me Out
By Richard Greenberg
Directed by Matthew Randall
Produced by William D. Parker
Darren Lemming, the star center fielder of the world champion New York Empires, is young, rich, famous, talented, handsome and so convinced of his popularity that when he casually announces he’s gay, he assumes the news will be readily accepted by everyone. It isn’t.
Like a good ball game, Take Me Out offers the fans a winning combination of drama and suspense, memorable personalities (and physiques), and occasional agony alternating with bouts of exhilaration. True to Dominion Stage’s mission to remain “Anything But Predictable” this entertaining production is the perfect opportunity to take someone out.
