REDCAT: “Her self-deprecating humor is not just funny, its excesses contain jaw-dropping revelations on the intersections of passion and fear.” – LA Weekly

“A theatrical whirling dervish… painfully, hilariously funny. –The Seattle Times

World Premiere

With live music and a wicked wit, incisive and hilarious writer/performer Lauren Weedman shares secrets of her alternate identity: a colorful personality born in her past and controlling her future. Before becoming an acclaimed author, a popular star of HBO’s Looking, and a noted correspondent for TheDaily Show, Lauren was given the birth name(s) Tammy LisaHer adopted family gave her a new name and a life that led to near-stardom and gobs of critical praise, but as early-ish midlife approaches, Tammy Lisa is re-emerging as a musical and multi-faceted character who often embodies Loretta Lynn, Helen Reddy, or Lucinda Williams — depending on her mood swings. Tammy Lisa re-invents the cabaret form with funny and dark songs of heartbreak, gay boys, straight boys, volatile love, side-splitting comedy, and bliss.

Direction: Erica Beeney 
Music: Tim Sonnefeld
