JAMES GAMMON MEMORIAL: Sunday, August 22nd, 2pm, at the MET Theatre

by on Aug.19, 2010, under Past Shows

http://www.newsoxy.com/images/0718/james-gammon.jpg

“…Gammon gripped audiences most tightly when he was on stage. A co-founder of the MET Theatre, he received several Los Angeles Drama
Critics Circle Awards for acting and directing. Gammon helped establish the old MET, a 50-seat theater on Poinsettia Place near Melrose Avenue in the Fairfax district, in the 1970s with a trilogy of William Inge plays, “Bus Stop,” “Picnic” and “Dark at the Top of the Stairs.”

“He did a lot of movies and TV, but I think his great presence and power was on the stage,” Paul Koslo, an actor and director who worked with
Gammon at the MET, said Saturday. “He always had something unexpected, riveting and real. “

In 1978 Gammon appeared in his first Shepard drama, “Curse of the Starving Class,” at the Public Theater in New York. The playwright called Gammon “astounding” after seeing him reprise the role of Weston in the West Coast premiere at the MET a year later.

Said theater critic Sylvie Drake in a review in The Times of the MET production: “His is a performance cut from flesh — a riveting, drunken,
brawling, blind portrayal of a man at sea in a life he had abandoned years before, too long ago to ever hope to find it again.”

……

We’ll miss you, Jimmy.
