Danny O’Hare: I Feel Fuzzy

A special preview performance of a new comedy by Jamie Gower.

July 13–14, 2018

Valley Center Stage

Music, comedy, and crisis in a cabaret puppet show for grownups

Required Field Productions is proud to present Danny O’Hare: I Feel Fuzzy, a new cabaret show starring Danny O’Hare, an energetic singer with a deep love of the lounge classics. Danny is also a puppet in heavy denial of his puppet-ness (puppet-ude? puppet-osity?) When Danny is forced to face his true nature in the middle of the show, he handles it poorly—and hilariously. Luckily, he’s helped by his two long-suffering human backup singers: a fed-up soprano, and an alto with a secret. They use tough-ish love to guide him through a musical intervention featuring favorites and deep dives from lounge, pop, Broadway, and beyond.

The show is an original collaboration between three long-time Seattle-area performers: actress and classical vocalist Kathy Roche Zujko, dancer/singer Suzanne Duckworth Claflin, and writer and comedian Jamie Gower. Suzanne and Kathy were two parts of a professional a capella trio. Kathy and Jamie worked together on his long-running series of comedy-variety plays. They are excited to bring their Venn diagram of overlapping experience to Seattle audiences in preparation for premiering the show at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Danny O’Hare: I Feel Fuzzy starts out as a cabaret show, takes a sharp left turn into screwball comedy, and ultimately becomes a heartfelt celebration of life and love. Come for the jokes and the singing, stay for the hope and optimism. And learn how to hypnotize a puppet. Because you never know when that will come in handy.

Special Q&A after the show, so you can ask us in person just what the heck were we thinking!

Danny O'Hare: I Feel Fuzzy is heading to Edinburgh Fringe this August, and you can help. Be part of the audience for our final previews before we hit the road.
