Transcript Yoko goes gay New version of old song addresses gay marriage. Page 17 GAY HOUSTON NIGHTLIFE, ARTS & CULTURE houstonvoice.com JULY 2, 2004 Gay actor Todd Waite says the stretch from Christie's Hastings to Shakespeare's Orsino is what brought him to the Alley Theatre By BINNIE FISHER ver almost two decades in the theater. Todd Waite has played his share of intriguing characters created by likes of Shakespeare, Albee, Tolstoy and Shaw. Yet, as he rehearsed for his most recent role in the Alley Theatre's production of Agatha Christie's "Black Coffee." Waite said, "I've done about a hundred plays. This may be only the second Agatha Christie. I have not played Capt. Hastings before." Waite, who came to the jolley four seasons ago from the Shaw Theatre Festival in Canada, is cast as the assistant to the famous Belgian Detective Hercule Poirot, played by Alley veteran James Black. "Black Coffee" is one of Christie's. earlier works. The play opened Dec. 8, 1930 at London's Embassy Theatre. "The funny thing about this work is that of all the Agatha Christie plays that were turned into movies, she did not at the time turn this one into a novel," Waite said. "She had to wait 50 years for someone else to do it." When Christie's heirs finally did have the play turned into a novel, Waite said it was done shoddily "It still contains some of the stage directions," he said. Waite is no stranger to the British mystery. He played Holmes in the Alley's production of "Sherlock Holmes" last season. The two shows are similar in that the character combinations work together in the same way "Hastings and Poirot are like Sherlock and Watson," he said. "It's their synergy that makes it work." Where Holmes is often detached and existing in his own crime-solving mind. Poirot is fussy and festidious about every detail. It is Watson and Hastings who humanize the scenes and reel the star detectives back to earth from time to time. Waite, who has taught classes in British scene study that included mastery of British dialects, said he finds that he fits easily into the character of Hastings. "It's just so easy to speak and act the part," he said. Although Christie's most famous play is "The Mousetrap," Waite noted that "Black Coffee" was her first.
