I DREAMED A DREAMGIRL
BLAKE McIVER and EMERSON COLLINS starred together in four seasons of BRAVO’s hit social series The People’s Couch and now they hit the stage together in a live show FOR THE FIRST TIME!
I DREAMED A DREAMGIRL is a two-man tour de force as they tell the stories of their relationship and careers through showtunes, duets, Disney favs (and deep cuts), mashups and medleys that (probably) shouldn’t exist combining theatre, cabaret and pop. It will be fun, it…may not make sense!
Between them, Emerson and Blake have performed, produced, hosted and won awards in studio and independent film, network and cable television, national tours, radio, studio recording, soundtracks, countless benefits and every kind of theatre!
Blake has three decades of entertainment experience (and wears it wearily well) from winning Junior Vocalist Champion on Star Search, the US Premiere production of Ragtime and of course The Little Rascals and Full House. Emerson was featured in RENT: LIVE on FOX, the first regional premiere of Buyer & Cellar and produced and starred in Southern Baptist Sissies, A Very Sordid Wedding and LOGO’s Sordid Lives: The Series.
Emerson’s journey with Uptown Players began with A Man Of No Importance and then Southern Baptist Sissies before hosting Broadway Our Way with Denise Lee in 2006. He returned last year to assistant direct and star in the world premiere stage adaptation of A Very Sordid Wedding. Blake joined the Uptown family starring as “Felicia” in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and “Wes” in The View Upstairs.
