Following a wildly successful run in HAIRSPRAY LIVE! on NBC, Austin's own, Tommy Martinez, comes home.
After graduating from Bowie High School in 2001, Tommy Martinez traveled the globe, from cruise ships in Europe to regional theaters across the U.S. to Broadway («Newsies») to «Hairspray Live!» on NBC. Tommy will sing, dance and share his story in this high-energy show that promises to leave you smiling and humming a tune.
Tommy is joined by his «Putnam County Spelling Bee» castmate, Laura Dadap Gilmartin, who is as talented as her stage persona, Marcy Parks. She plays cello (her uncle is Yo Yo Ma — no joke), she is a magnificent coloratura soprano (not at all like Florence Foster Jenkins), and she is very funny.
The show is rounded out by Nimmy Weisbrod, a classically trained opera singer who got a full-ride scholarship to the Peabody Conservatory at John Hopkins University, but ultimately chose a more predictable career as a pediatric nurse.
The trio will bring an evening of fun and entertainment to the stage as they share what «living the dream» really looks like.
