Ira Cooper: Ira Cooper is flabbergasted by the amount of instruments that he never knew about until this show. He is equally as flabbergasted by the fluid, creative process that went in to make this magical musical romp in a garage, possible. He’d like the thank the creative forces for giving him this wonderful opportunity and the wonderfully talented cast, for being wonderfully talented and wonderfully open people. Ira’s previous work on the stage has included “Diary of A Madman” (Setkani Festival, Czech Republic), “The Laramie Project” (Fighting Chance Production) and “Little Little Little Theatre” (William Miranda Production). He is currently in the midst of rewriting his one man show series to start public performances hopefully in July. See Ira next in “Party This Weekend” directed by Laura McLean. Thank you to the fam, girlfriend and friends as a constant reminder that theatre is based on something besides imagination.
