Tammy/Lisa – From Misery to Meanin – Los Angeles, CA

September 29, 2016 - October 2, 2016

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 Lisa. Her 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.

REDCAT is located at 631 West 2nd Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012 in the heart of downtown Los Angeles on the northeast corner of the intersection of W. 2nd and Hope Streets. Housed in the Walt Disney Concert Hall complex, REDCAT has its own street entrance on 2nd Street.
