The Complete History of America (abriged)
by Adam Long, Reed Martin & Austin Tichenor
Directed by Robert Currier
You just couldn’t ask for a better cast. Seriously. Or not so seriously, as the case may be.
Darren Bridgett has stolen the hearts of Marin Shakespeare audience members for years with his comedy and audience interaction. But a huge part of his skill and charisma come from his exceptional ability as a comic collaborator. He always makes the other actors onstage look good and audiences feel good. Whether he’s playing a hardened soldier with trench mouth, a hardboiled detective on acid, or a hardly visible minute man (a better lover than you might think), Darren makes hard work (and his acting partners) look easy.
Darren and Bob Currier are long-time collaborators. Bob reported he never had so much fun in rehearsal in his life as working on this show. The board then decided to cut his salary.
Mick Mize, who we’d never seen onstage or heard of before in our lives, walked into our open auditions and walked away with the role of -- himself. A year later, Mick has been scooped up by Cirque du Soleil and is off on a national tour, taking his clowning skills, vaudeville moves, and Vietnamese accent with him. You go, girl!
And what a joy to welcome beloved Bay Area comic icon Cassidy Brown to the Forest Meadows stage. The stage may never be the same again.
