I am proud to have been asked to come back and revive some of the most entertaining musical numbers I have ever seen or been a part of...and I hope those of you who can will come see it too!
Houston folks who have YET to come to a Tamarie Cooper Show...THIS is the one you have to see because these songs are the the crème de la crème and this may be the last chance you'll get to see me sing "Death Is All Around You" as Death himself! :)
It's an election year and Tamarie's throwing her hat in the ring. Won't you join her campaign to help make America totally awesome? Puppies and lollipops for everyone!
Catastrophic is celebrating another decade of hilarious, satirical, no holds barred musical theatre from the weird and wonderful world of Tamarie Cooper. Employing the election as a framing device, Tamarie combines her favorite scenes and musical numbers from the last ten years of original musicals to create a power-packed evening saluting and skewering politics, body image, ageism, addiction, family dysfunction, patriotism, death, sex, love, and America. Featuring lovable hits like Born Again Texan, Barbie Sex Boat, Food Love, and Old Glory (the penis flag song)! Tamarie for President! (Greatest Hits, Volume 2) is the 19th installment of the Tamarie Cooper juggernaut. Since 1996, Tamarie has wowed Houston audiences almost every summer with an entirely original, full-scale, musical comedy extravaganza - filled to the brim with songs and gags and hi-jinx from some of Houston's funniest theatre artists. Tamarie's shows truly are a unique, and uniquely Houstonian, phenomenon. Get your tickets fast. This one always sells out in advance.
My next project is to portray Pontius Pilate in the World Premiere of this hilarious comedy. You can find out more at Stages Repertory Theatre's website.
I'm honored to have been asked by one of my greatest theater mentors, Carol MacVey, to take part in her film adaptation of Anton Chekov's classic play The Seagull.
I will be playing Eli, a modern take on Ilya Afanasyevich Shamrayev.
At first, I totally misunderstood who I was playing, but now I get it. ;)
Donations to help make this a reality can be found here.
I'm so excited to invite anyone who can make it to come see me play Lennie Small in the classic story "Of Mice and Men" by John Steinbeck.
From Texas Repertory Theatre's promotional materials:
In a time when dreams seemed a thing of the past, two unlikely friends dare to believe in a better life. George Milton and Lennie Small, two migrant workers living deep in the wrath of the 1930's Dust Bowl depression, desperately cling to the belief that they are somehow different from those around them, as they have a future and their friendship to see them through. This timeless & beautiful Pulitzer Prize-winning classic by John Steinbeck is a haunting reminder that even when we believe in them most, dreams may go wrong and "the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry."
Hope to see you there!
Very Exciting News!
I am cast in the role of Father Etienne Rousselon in the workshop production of the new musical "Quadroon" with music by Joe Sample, music and lyrics by Johnatha Brook and book by Marc Mantell!
