A World Premiere!
What do you do when your heart is broken? When your world seems to be falling apart, one frustration at a time? Grab a guitar, hitch up your jeans, and sing about it! From the star of HBO’s Looking and The People’s Republic of Portland at The Armory, Lauren Weedman (and her alter ego Tami Lisa) are ready to take you on a journey of heartbreak, laughter and fresh starts. Lauren will be joined by a band of fine musicians; and we’re pretty sure her hair will be bigger than ever.

Lauren Weedman uses country music to explore heartbreak and love in Lauren Weedman Doesn't Live Here Anymore, but gone are the days when country wives are expected to stand by their man.
