February 2013

jcs-logoTim posted about the unfortunate need to reschedule (and, sadly, cancel in some places) the March UK arena tour of Jesus Christ Superstar to October last week, however it has come with some benefits.

When the tour was first announced there were calls from fans for Scottish and Yorkshire shows. Well it seems that The Really Useful Group have listened and added two extra dates in October, in brand new, shiny venues!

The tour will now be opening in Glasgow at The Hydro on 1st October 2013 and adding an extra calling point in at Leeds Arena on the 4th October 2012.

Tickets for both of these extra-sparkly shows will go on sale tomorrow at 9am from jesuschristsuperstar.com.

There are still a few tickets left to see Tim headlining the Stand Up For Shelter comedy night at the Hammersmith Apollo, London, on the 27th February 2013.

Tim has a 45 minute set of lyrically and satirically sublime songs planned for your entertainment. Joining him on the fabulous line up, hosted by Christian O’Connell, are: Jimmy Carr, Alistair McGowan, Stewart Francis, Sara Pascoe and The Cuban Brothers.

Tickets are available here with all proceeds from the night going to Shelter and their vital work.

Tim: “I’m delighted to be part of this show for Shelter, a brilliant charity which steps in really quickly to help struggling families with no home. The line up is great and different and hilarious and it’s going to be a fantastic night of comedy and awesome fun. Come! Bring friends.”

We announced back in September, here, that Tim is to make his Sydney Theatre Company (STC) debut performing, with Toby Schmitz, in Tom Stoppard’s absurdist, existentialist tragicomedy Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. At the time tickets for the show, which runs from 6th August to 7th September 2013, were only available as part of the Season Ticket packages.

This is a reminder that tickets will be on general sale on Monday 11th February 2013 at 9am (Sydney time) from the Sydney Theatre website here or you can phone: 02 9250 1777. Prices range from $50 – $90 and further details are available via their website.

When news of this role first broke, Tim said: “I adore Stoppard, I adore this play, and Toby and I love working together. So when Luke (Cowling – who co-directed the UWA version) suggested that we should try to play the title roles opposite each other, I got very excited. Eventually the idea ended up with the STC who in turn suggested the incredible Simon Phillips as director. I’ve known for some time that it was going to happen, but now it’s actually been officially announced, I can properly start shitting myself. With fear, as well as excitement.

The box office will be busy that day, with all the shows for the second half of STC’s 2013 season going on sale, and this is likely to be a very hot ticket indeed, so if you’re keen to see Tim play Rosencrantz or Guildenstern or Guildenstern or Rosencrantz, you’ll need to be on your toes.

UPDATE (11th February 2013): The STC website is having real problems this morning. You can follow their updates on the situation on Twitter @SydneyTheatreCo. Apparently “Unprecedented demand”…including “lots of people wanting to get tickets for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead” has caused their website to go down and phone lines to be overwhelmed but they’ll tweet when the website is back up and they advise to keep trying the phone lines, because once you get through and into a queue the wait isn’t too bad. Also the Box Office at The Wharf is open, if you can get there to book in person. Good luck everyone!

As many of you now know, due to various almost-impossible-to-control factors, the producers of Jesus Christ Superstar have unfortunately had to postpone the UK touring dates. I know this is going to properly dick with many of your plans, and I’m really sorry, for what it’s worth. It’s a right pain-in-the-perfect-butts for the cast, and was a very difficult decision for Andrew and the folk at RUG.
I really hope you can come to the rescheduled dates in Sept/Oct. It’ll be worth the wait, I reckon.

A while ago, Flim Flam Films launched a Kickstarter project to fund their documentary, An Honest Liar: The Amazing Randi Story, which will profile the life of the magician turned skeptic, James “The Amazing” Randi, following his crusades to expose con artists, psychics and faith healers.

Now, you might have read that and thought, “What’s that got to do with Tim?” Well, Tim has been interviewed for the documentary – along with fellow skeptics Penn and Teller, Richard Dawkins, Neil deGrasse Tyson and Adam Savage – and they’ve just released a preview clip of him talking about Randi’s influence on his work.

You can pledge as little or as much as you’d like to help fund the documentary, with exclusive goodies, such as Pigasus coasters, movie posters, card decks and signed, rare Randi posters, available at different price points, along with digital and physical copies of the film.
