“It’s the End of the World. Bring on the dancing cupcakes!”

The Play

Most people in Houston wish for the end of summer, but this year you’ll wish for the End of the World.

Since time will cease to exist in a few months when the Mayan calendar runs out, this is the perfect opportunity for us to present the greatest musical ever!

E  v  e  r.

Now in its 15th edition, Tamarie’s almost-annual musical shenanigans take on the universal threat of doom and raise the stakes for her personal revelations and signature zany song and dance numbers.

Tamarie Cooper’s DOOMSDAY REVUE (The Greatest Musical Ever!) is a celebration of our imminent destruction. From apocalyptic predictions, adolescent embarrassment, zombies, pestilence, and famine to global warming, astronomical catastrophes, technological collapse, and the Barbie Sex Boat – no one is safe from whatever comes next.

So grab your bug out bag and prepare for the best.
