Thrilled to be a part of this two-play historical extravaganza at Main Street Theater this Fall/Winter.

I'll be playing two roles in this show:  Stephen Gardiner and Eustache Chapuys and it's going to be awesome.

Hope to see you there!

This dramatic event features two exceptional plays set in the court of Henry VIII and adapted from Hilary Mantel’s novels.  In Part I (Wolf Hall), the court of Henry VIII is in utter upheaval as the King rages over his lack of a male heir. The shrewd and ambitious Thomas Cromwell inserts himself into the political scene to help the king pursue his passion for Anne Boleyn and secure an annulment from Katherine of Aragon.  Part II (Bring Up the Bodies) charts Anne’s downfall, the rise of Jane Seymour, and Cromwell’s alliances with his greatest enemies.  Featuring a cast of 23, Parts I and II will run in repertory.

Main Street Theater’s Wolf Hall is the only production since the Royal Shakespeare Company’s. 

Children under the age of 5 are not allowed in the theater.

She's baaaaack!  And so am I!

It's SO fun and SO funny!

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! :)


Here's the description from Catastrophic Theatre

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 TexanBarbie Sex BoatFood 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.  ;)

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!
