Benefit for Jason Nodler

Jason Nodler is the artistic director for The Catastrophic Theatre. The following is an email from Tamarie Cooper:

Dear Friends,

Many of you know that Jason was the victim of a serious hit and run accident while in Amsterdam this summer. He has had surgery and despite much pain, is finally starting to heal, very, very slowly.

Although Jason has a basic health insurance plan, there are many medical expenses that are not covered and he is currently in dire financial straits.

Unfortunately, the Dutch authorities are dragging their feet on charging the driver of the cab that hit Jason and, even if he is eventually compensated, it could be years before he recovers any of his expenses.

Jason is also not comfortable asking his friends for help with this matter, so I’ve taken it upon myself to do so for him.

Any size of financial contribution will greatly help. Please join me in raising these much-needed funds! Whether it’s $10 or $100, any amount will help immensely.

In times of crisis, we must turn to friends and family for assistance. Let’s help our friend and fearless leader of The Catastrophic Theatre, literally, get back on his feet.

We will be having an Open House/ SAVE JASON! Benefit at:

The new Catastrophic Office, 1540 Sul Ross (on the corner of Mandell & Sul Ross, directly across the street from the Menil Collection) on:



Beer, wine, sodas, cocktails, delicious food, and lively banter will be offered for your enjoyment.

Cash and checks (made payable to Jason Nodler) will be happily accepted at the Benefit.

If you are unable to attend, but wish to make a contribution, you may send checks to (Ed. note: address redacted – please send me an email for the info if you want to mail a check.)

Contributions may also be made with credit cards via PayPal. Simply visit the PayPal website ( and click the “Send Money” tab.

All you’ll need to complete your transaction is Jason’s email address: [email protected]

Thanks Everyone!

I hope to see you next Saturday. If you have any questions, please contact me at [email protected].



Jason is a swell and super-talented guy who, as it turns out, was also good friends with a cousin of mine when they were in high school. (Houston can be a big ol’ small town sometimes.) The Catastrophic Theatre is a jewel in Houston’s arts scene, and Jason is a key part of making that happen. If you’re at all a fan of the arts here in town, please consider helping him out. Thanks very much.
