Heath LAMBERTS, Actor: 1941-2005
Performer who possessed a genius for comedy won a string of Canadian theatre awards but was denied greatness by the curse of unpredictability and by a set of conflicting insecurities, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, March 5, 2005 - Page S9
A short rotund man with a genius for comedy, Heath LAMBERT also had a predisposition for depression. His life was often an emotional roller coaster. He achieved fame as Cyrano de Bergerac at the Shaw Festival, combatted alcoholism and found romance at the stage door in his mid-50s, only to be diagnosed with cancer two years after meeting the love of his life.
"His greatest strength was being funny, that was hismétier, his force," said actress Martha HENRY. " But the humour doesn't exist, and this is true of the great Russian clowns as well, without a huge well of tragedy and feelings of loss and betrayal. Heath always felt he didn't fit in anywhere and that was a source of great anguish for him. On the other hand," she added thoughtfully, "it was endless food for his gifts."
"He swung between two poles in his life. One was charming and helpful and totally generous and the other was quite mean and very self-centred," said director Christopher NEWTON. "He could have been one of the greats, but he had this flaw that made him unpredictable."
Heath LAMBERTS was born James LANGCASTER in the Spadina and College area of Toronto in the early days of the Second World War. His youngest brother, John, a firefighter, remembers Jimmy "as always leading me and teaching me and being here to help me in a heartbeat."
School was a struggle, with Jimmy being held back and finally pushed along from one grade to another. After Huron Street Public School, he enrolled in an art program at nearby Central Technical School but quit after a couple of years to try acting full time. " 'Go, and you'll end up selling fish in Kensington Market,' " his brother remembers the teachers saying. "They had no idea of his potential."
What they didn't seem to realize was that Jimmy was probably dyslexic and prone to depression, and his troublesomeness was likely a result of his frustration. As a teenager he joined the 48th Highlanders, training on weekends and summers, an affiliation he treasured for the rest of his life.
As a boy soprano, he appeared as part of the chorus in a couple of Canadian Opera Company productions. Later, he performed in summer stock at Vineland in the Niagara Peninsula and in at least one play for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. That's where he met actress Martha HENRY in the early fall of 1960, when he was 18.
They were having a drink after rehearsal one day when Jimmy asked what she would think if he adopted Heath LAMBERTS as a stage name. She started to laugh and then she realized he was absolutely serious. Apparently, Jimmy and his good friend, actor Colin FOX, were interested in numerology and they had sent the date and time of their births to a company that had translated the data into lists of first and last names, any of which could be conjoined to reflect their "birth paths."
Ms. HENRY and Mr. LAMBERTS had been accepted that same year into the inaugural class of the National Theatre School in Montreal. Welsh actor Powys Thomas, who was the first principal of the National Theatre School, "was incredibly intuitive and he would have seen something in Heath that possibly nobody else had ever seen," said Ms. HENRY.
From the beginning, at the National Theatre School, however, Mr. Thomas and the other students recognized Mr. LAMBERTS as the king of improvisation. "I don't think anyone had ever said that he was brilliant before," commented Ms. HENRY, adding that it was incredibly exciting "to see the blossoming of a creative being." She still remembers Mr. LAMBERTS doing an improvisation derived from Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard. He was given the tutor Trofimov to play as he is awaiting the return of Madame Ranevsky from Moscow.
The scene opened with Mr. LAMBERTS lying asleep on a cot with his boots off. He bolted upright when he heard Mme. Ranevsky's carriage approach, began looking around for his boots and then, as if in a daze, went over to a chalk board and wrote something in Cyrillic letters. He then found the other boot and went rushing out of the room to meet his employer, wearing one boot and holding the other.
"It was as though Heath had been sent some kind of message from God," she said of the effect. "Heath couldn't write English, never mind Cyrillic. I have no idea where this came from. He did things like this constantly in the theatre school, things that made us laugh, of course, but that also made us sit back in wonder."
After Mr. LAMBERTS graduated from the National Theatre School in 1963, he was hired by John Hirsch, founding director of the Manitoba Theatre Centre, as a charter member of the Manitoba Theatre Centre's Young Company. He made his debut at the Stratford Festival in 1964, winning a Tyrone Guthrie award in his first season and again two years later. He appeared regularly at Stratford in the 1960s, playing in Love's Labour's Lost, Twelfth Night, Falstaff and Richard II, among other productions.
Christopher NEWTON, emeritus artistic director of the Shaw Festival, had a complicated relationship with Mr. LAMBERTS dating back to Stratford in the mid-1960s. Mr. LAMBERTS was an unpleasant drunk, according to Mr. NEWTON, but when he sobered up and joined Alcoholics Anonymous in the early 1980s, all his insecurities were still there. Although he could be generous and kind, he tended to turn on his fellow performers by belittling them as they came off stage and even undermining them during a performance, according to Mr. NEWTON. The terrible thing, he continued, was that you couldn't predict when his unpleasant side was going to "click in."
Mr. NEWTON hired Mr. LAMBERTS to play the title role in Tartuffe at the Vancouver Playhouse in the 1970s. He came out and stayed for three years with the company, of which Mr. NEWTON was then the artistic director. He did some wonderful work out in Vancouver, said Mr. NEWTON. He could "ride the scene" with you as an actor, he said, like skiing or surfing where you know the words are going to come and you are just with that other person and doing it. He could also "step out of a part and take the audience with him wherever he wanted to go." The tragedy of Mr. LAMBERTS, though, was that his problems getting along with people worked against his theatrical genius, said Mr. NEWTON.
Returning to Ontario, Mr. LAMBERTS acted at the Shaw Festival for 12 seasons. It was here that he was briefly married to Carole MacOMBER, a stage manager at the festival, and here, too, where he achieved his greatest acclaim as Cyrano in a production of Cyrano de Bergerac directed by Derek GOLDBY in 1982 and 1983. He trusted Mr. GOLDBY as a director, which probably helped him to deliver such a nuanced performance in a role that suited both his talents and his appearance. Mr. LAMBERTS was given an Order of Canada, mainly for his success as Cyrano.
The last time Mr. LAMBERTS and Mr. NEWTON worked together was in a Mirvish production of One for the Pot at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto in 1996. Mr. LAMBERTS won a Dora Mavor Moore award -- his third -- for his performance. "We planned that he should come back and so we looked for traditional British farces that he could do standing on his head. I sent him ideas and he sent me ideas and then suddenly I didn't hear from him and he was appearing on Broadway, without telling me."
The role was Cogsworth, the butler in the Disney production of Beauty and the Beast in 1994 and it marked the beginning of Mr. LAMBERTS's American period. Three years later, on the day after Valentine's Day, he met Pittsburgh quilter Louise SILK in New York. He was performing as the mute King Sextimus in Once Upon a Mattress with Sarah Jessica Parker at the Broadhurst Theatre on Broadway.
Ms. SILK was waiting at the stage door to get Ms. Parker's autograph for her two daughters when Mr. LAMBERTS walked out. She thought he was the best thing in the show and she tapped him on the shoulder to tell him so. They began talking and she eventually gave him her business card. For several months they telephoned and e-mailed until finally he drove down to Pittsburgh to visit her. On their first date, he took her to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting because "he wanted me to understand what it meant to him and what his life had been like."
Two years later, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He had surgery but the cancer had already spread and he needed radiation and chemotherapy. Ms. SILK, a divorced mother of three, persuaded him to move to Pittsburgh so she could take care of him. "He lived life larger than most people," said Ms. SILK. "He was everything for me."
Mr. LAMBERTS introduced her to Buddhism, which they both practised. "It wasn't all peaches and cream," she said. "He was difficult and he wasn't happy about coming to Pittsburgh, but it [our relationship] was very real and alive and meaningful."
Mr. LAMBERTS's disease progressed and he developed a second cancer in his throat. Still he kept on acting, as his health permitted. He appeared in e-lectricity with Rick Kemp in December and was scheduled to appear as Justice Swallow in Henry IV this month at the Irish and Classical Theatre.
The week before last, his condition deteriorated and he was admitted to hospital. Ms. SILK sat by his bedside and reread their e-mail correspondence to him as he lay dying.
As she finished, he suddenly sat forward, opened his eyes and then slipped back and stopped breathing. It was his final curtain call, one that gives Ms. SILK much comfort to relate.
"He was an actor and he had to make a magnificent exit," she said.
Heath LAMBERTS was born James LANGCASTER in Toronto on December 15, 1941, the eldest of three sons of Cyril and Patricia Langcaster. He died in Pittsburgh on February 22. He was 63. He is survived by his partner Louise SILK and her children and by his two brothers. A memorial service is being planned in Toronto.

BUTCHERD, Stanley H. (April 14, 1924-April 26, 2005)
Passed away suddenly at Welland General Hospital at the age of 81. Stan leaves behind his loving wife, best friend and life-long travel companion, Dorothy (née DEARING,) many close Friends and colleagues.
After serving as a Flying Officer in the Royal Canadian Air Force, Stan graduated from the University of Toronto School of Architecture in 1950. A Fellow of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada, and past president of the Ontario Association of Architects (1969), Stan practised architecture for over 54 years - an achievement that was recognized by the Ontario Association of Architects in 2004. Stan's career began in Toronto in the offices of noted architect John LANGE, before forming a private practice with Bob CALVERT. In 1957, he moved to Port Colborne to establish his own company. He was a founding president of the Niagara Chapter of the Ontario Association of Architects, founding member of the Port Colborne L.A.C.A.C., and was responsible for the design of many civic buildings throughout the Niagara region.
Throughout his life, Stan was an inspiration and mentor to many younger architects. Nowhere was this more evident than when he formed a partnership toward the end of his career with Robert MacKENZIE. Their firm subsequently joined Quartek, a multi- discipline design and engineering company, where Stan continued to practise until finally being allowed to retire at age 80.
With Dorothy, he shared a love of travel, music, and art that endeared them to Friends of all ages. In the glint of his eyes, one discovered his sense of humour and quiet intelligence. His profound commitment to citizenry led Stan to become a President of the Port Colborne Lion's Club, a member of the Police/ Citizen's Advisory Committee, and an active member of the community's First Lutheran Church.
Predeceased by his parents, Nellie and Harry (of Eastbourne, England), he will be greatly missed by his wife, Dorothy, and their Godchildren, Don RHYNAS (Jane MacDONALD) of London, Ann SMALE of Kitchener (Wayne MOORE), Jane SMALE (Anthony VANLEEUWEN), and Peter SMALE (Nancy BENITZ) of Toronto.
Friends will be received at the Port Colborne Chapel of the Davidson Funeral Homes 135 Clarence St. on Thursday and Friday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. Funeral services will be held Saturday, April 30 at 2: 00 pm at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church, 688 Elm Street, Port Colborne, followed by burial at St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery and a reception. In lieu of flowers or gifts, please make donations to Doctors without Borders, 2200 Yonge Street, Toronto, or to the Welland Humane Society.
