In association with the producers of Broadway's mega hit "Wicked," The Araca Group ("Urinetown", "Rock of Ages"), & Syracuse University, "The Tramaine Experience: An Urban Dramedy" had it’s official Off-Broadway premiere in 2011 at American Theatre of Actors as an official selection of the inaugural season of The Araca Project. "He is amazing. He dances, he sings, and he is a great actor. Tramaine Montell Ford is a rising star," says NBC News, and “Fairly flabbergasting…with Jim Carrey’s comic elasticity and Michael Jackson’s physical fluidity,” says the Chicago Journal of Ford. His newest work, the award-winning edgy and innovative one man show hi-jacks an unsuspecting audience and takes them on a hilarious semi-autobiographical journey. We end up in Chicago in Ford’s hometown neighborhood, the Cabrini Green Projects-- The notorious complex often viewed as a symbol of the ills of public housing. The interactive and improvisational nature of the show makes for high laughs and an uncanny sense that we are right in the middle of Cabrini. We meet the quirky singing and dancing cast of inner-city dwellers that ultimately highlight to us the humanity we all share; and show us that beauty can blossom from the darkest of places. Developed in workshop at 42nd St.’s Theatre Row Studio Theatre, "Outstanding Performance in a Solo Show” winner at the Planet Connections Theatre Festivity Awards, limited engagements of The Tramaine Experience: An Urban Dramedy have taken residence at Soho’s Gene Frankel Theatre, Robert Moss Theatre (benefiting United Way of NYC), Chicago’s Gorilla Tango Theatre, Greenhouse Theatre, Syracuse University, and American Repertory Theatre’s Club Oberon.
