Tamara is performing at the La Jolla Playhouse as part of the ensemble cast for the World Premier of the new musical comedy, Up Here, with book, music and lyrics by the Oscar & Grammy Award winners Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. The musical is directed by Tony Award nominated Alex Timbers.
Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez are the Oscar and Grammy winning married songwriting team behind the Disney animated film sensation, Frozen. Bobby conceived and co-wrote the smash hit musicals Avenue Q and Book of Mormon, which both earned him Tony Awards. Kristen’s show, In Transit, opened Off Broadway in 2010 and earned recognition at the Drama Desk, Drama League and Lucille Lortel awards that year.
Kristen and Bobby have written for television, film and stage, including the stage version of Finding Nemo, songs for The Wonder Pets (two Emmy Award wins) and the Winnie The Pooh animated film. Bobby is the youngest of twelve people to “EGOT” (that is, win Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony Awards). We’d like to thank our families and everyone who believed in this show enough to help us get it out of our heads and onto the stage.
Up Here runs from July 28 to September 13, 2015.
