Tamberla Perry – A Rising Star
I was delighted to have the opportunity to steal a moment from Tamberla Perry at the Goodman Theater between an “artist talk” and a preview performance! Tamberla is starring alongside Geoffrey Owens, Patrick Clear and Marc Grapey in Race by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Mamet, directed by Chuck Smith. I’ve enjoyed Tamberla in numerous performances, including Brother/Sister Plays at Steppenwolf, Northlight’s Eclipsed, Fedra: Queen of Haiti at LookingGlass and several performances with MPAACT Afrikan Centered Theatre, of which she is a member.
On film, Tamberla Perry has appeared in Tapioca, Puzzled Love and Chasing Robert. She can be seen hosting the Illinois Lottery on WGN and on the new Starz series Boss. Ms. Perry’s voice can be heard on many national television and radio commercials.
Even more impressive is the fact that her talent comes not from extensive academic training, but from commitment and hard work. Take a look and a listen to learn more about Tamberla Perry and Race.
