Tamarie’s back with the next installment in her series of super-popular, original musicals, but this time there’s a problem.
At the end of the opening number, the Theatre Police arrive threatening to close down the show. They cite Tamarie for being in violation of the Ingénue Code, which relegates all actresses over the age of 40 to play character roles like nosy neighbors, crazy aunts, and dotty maids.
The only way to save the show is to recast the role of Tamarie with a younger actress. Removed from her own show, Tamarie attempts to connect with the youth of today in order to demonstrate her suitability to play the role of herself.
Tamarie Cooper's Old as Hell! features a live orchestra, an original score, an enormous cast, and more singing, dancing, and over-the-top hilarity than you can throw a pie at.
Henry V begins previews this weekend.
A Co-production by Main Street Theater and Prague Shakespeare Company
“Considered by many to be the greatest war play ever written, Shakespeare’s King Henry V is a complex and powerful exploration of leadership, courage, and the human experience of battle. Intensely patriotic while at the same time questioning the morality of war, Shakespeare’s tale of a young king seeking to heal his wounded land and unite his people is a play for our times.”
-- Guy Roberts, Director of Henry V, Artistic Director of Prague Shakespeare Company
Featuring live Taiko musicians and an ensemble of 14 actors, the production will run in Houston in March and April and in Prague in the fall. Use the ART discount between now and March 21, and save 30% (use code ART) on your tickets. Henry V runs through April 21 at MST – Rice Village.
