ARTIST BIOGRAPHY FOR TAMARA JOHNSON-HOWELL

Tamara feels incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunity to explore the life and work of Bella Abzug. Today, we are truly standing on the shoulders of giants and one of the greatest among them, Bella, showed the way.

Tamara recently had the privilege of appearing in FOUR WOMEN TALKING ABOUT THE MAN UNDER THE SHEET at Salt Lake Acting Company. During last year’s theatre shutdown, she was in Plan B’s radio play P.G. ANON by Julie Jensen. Also at Salt Lake Acting Company, Tamara was honored to perform in STAG’S LEAP, which went on to play at the Martha‚Äôs Vineyard Playhouse. Other recent roles include Modesto/Floating/Jenya in WAIT!, Mary Todd Lincoln in MARY AND MYRA, Chris Remington in REMINGTON AND WEASEL, Mrs. Brooks in MOCKINGBIRD (Pygmalion), Abuela Claudia in IN THE HEIGHTS (Good Company), Emperor Saturninus in TITUS ANDRONICUS (Pinnacle) and Bashira in TWO STORIES (SLAC).

Tamara earned her BFA in Theatre from the University of Utah and is currently pursuing her Masters. She is a Jr. High School Theatre Teacher.
