Captain Redbeard Rum - Advice Needed

Postby MattR on April 23rd, 2014, 3:06 pm

Hello

I've recently had the honour of being cast as Captain Rum in a local (fully R.Curtis-endorsed) stage adaptation of Blackadder, and as such take on the task of emulating Tom's legendary performance in the role.

I wondered if Tom - or, indeed, anyone else, could offer any advice. In particular, I'd be interested to learn which brand of lozenges Tom favoured in rehearsals since a month or so in, my throat is ceasing to function (arrrrrghhhh, etc)

Thanks Tracy. Performances are in June... rehearsals going well. I've realised that being immobile means that I have half as much to remember (my "movements" are Baldrick's problem) and so I have quite a cushy number.

Except for my throat.

Hope to meet a nautical cove or two online to chat about Tom, "Who", etc :-)
