mr tim


I’ve been getting a lot of attention as the new Gypsy but it’s not just me, folks. This is the magic duo behind the new, drop-from-the-top-of-the-SOL Gypsy: Mr. Tim Blaney + Rebecca Hanson are the movement + sound behind the purple lady. You can see the harness/rig he wears to attach himself to the scaffolding above the set to make Gypsy operate from above this season. He’s one cool cat, with the handsome looks of leading man John Slattery + a low velvety voice not to mention the fact that he is/was freakin’ JOHNNY 5 from freakin’ ‘Short Circuit’!!! Talk about being star struck working with this gentleman! It’s his birthday today - so please celebrate him + all he’s given to us! Happy Birthday, Tim Blaney! (Thanks to puppeteer, Carla Rudy for directing + taking these 📸) We have fun! So glad Number 5 is Alive!!!

The gist of Sweeney Todd
  • Mrs Lovett: Mrs Mooney puts her neighbour's cats into her pies
  • Mrs Lovett: wouldn't do in my shop
  • Mrs Lovett: just the thought of it's enough to make you sick
  • Also Mrs Lovett: we could put people in the pies though that's fine
