The Tall Man

With just 5 days remaining before rehearsals begin for A Bright Room Called Day, we are winding down our Company member profiles.

Today we take a look at a man who if I could say anything about it would be he is a magnificent bastard. I mean that in the very same way that George S. Patton described his rival General Rommel. He makes the ladies go wild and he can act like no one has the right. His mix of good looks and effortless charm on stage make him a joy to watch.

Sure he has secrets. Tim possesses deep dark secrets that would embarrass a lesser company and cause it to shut down business and move to another city. Fortunately when the heat was on Tim saved us all by hiding out in Chicago with the Capone gang for a year until the heat died down. Now he is back and better than ever. He has appeared in JB, Master and Margarita and Behold! for Rorschach and has worked on a good number of sets. He installed the new floor which fills the Casa space from wall to wall and has worked at a number of local theaters, both as an actor and as a builder. Its nice to know someone who actually has skills in this business.

By the way this could in fact be the cruelest of all of our profiles, however since Tim crushed my spirit years ago, I take his good natured ribbing in the spirit in which it was intended. That being said, Tim whatever that is growing on your neck, it looks infected and you should have it examined immediately. I don't think anything healthy swells that much or comes in that interesting color of purple-green. Without further eloquence, Tim Getman!

Losing 1500 dollars striking Rhinoceros cause I ran the truck into a parked car and Randy hadn't gotten insurance. Didn't laugh when it happened.

I still maintain that Tim is the bastard love child of Bruce Campbell and Johhny Knoxville.
