Fantastic experience

Do not miss an opportunity to see Tamarie Cooper in any of the shows at the Catastrophic Theater. She lights up the stage and the entire room. Brilliant.

Excellent performance. Tamarie and team never disappoint their audience. Not for people who are offended by realism and cursing. Very entertaining. We've been to two other plays by the troupe. We laughed a lot. Comfortable small theater.

Love this theatre, even when the plays are beautiful but disturbing, and also when they are hilarious and uplifting (check out the Tamarie Cooper musical every summer!) I have indicated that you do not need a car, and that public transportation is available, but this will be the case when it move to MATCH, its new location.

Really enjoyed their current production The University of Tamarie. Houston has a great theater community and this small theater is right at the top of the list. Don't miss the chance to visit and enjoy a different theater experience.

I have been to see Tamarie Cooper's original summertime musical show two times in the last three years. Each year it's different. Once it was about the end of the world, and once about Holidays. I am a latecomer to this Houston tradition, and boy do I regret not hopping on sooner. It is truly the funniest thing I've ever... More

Prepare to be challenged at this challenging theatre. Many of the plays are dark indeed, but all are superbly acted.

This place was amazing! My boyfriend and I went here a few times to kill some time on our hands. The place is just amazing, and so darling.

Always enjoy the productions at Catastrophic. You will see theatre like never before and in an intimate space. Talent far exceeds expectations. New works and productions of older works always provoke the senses. It doesn't hurt that the annual Tamarie extravaganza is satifying a yearly need in local theatre.

From dark to light this theatre presents them both. From Beckett to Tamarie they need to provide seatbelts. It is that good.

Not wanting to imitate Kathy Bates as a #1 Fan - I whole heartedly enjoy my time w Catastrophic's ability to bring the way off center theater experience to Houston. Kudos!
