RADIO, LONESTAR, and MISPAWCHA with the
Buffalo Ensemble Theatre, and THE CAINE MUTINY COURT MARTIAL with Kavinoky
Theatre, as well as various productions with Gideon
Productions and Shakespeare in Delaware Park.
Heavily involved in pro-Union and anti-war causes, he works hard to practice on the streets
what he preaches on the stage.
Tom returned to the Subversive stage as the voice of the HUAC
Committee Chairman in our Artie Award-nominated production of PAUL ROBESON SPEAKS
OUT! in February of 2004. Then he played HUAC Committee informant Larry
Parks in our 2004 May Day staged reading of ARE YOU NOW OR HAVE YOU EVER

cell leader Anton in THE MOTHER. After that, he played the Editor in our staged
reading of BURY THE DEAD for the Buffalo installment of the
international "Bury the Dead Project" on September 19th,
Tom took on the role of an evil
policeman in our world premiere of FOUNDATIONS at the New Phoenix
Theatre in January of 2007. He then played the maniacal gun-thug
(pictured above) in our Artie Award-winning production of WAITING
FOR LEFTY at the New Phoenix Theatre in January of 2008.
Most recently Tom lent his acting skills to our
staged reading of THE MAN WHO NEVER DIED for May Day
2008 and again for our staged reading of DAYS OF THE COMMUNE for May
A strenuous supporter of Subversive Theatre and an
ever reliable member, Tom joined our Board of Directors in December of
2008. The Organizer of the Troupe, Tom co-ordinates many volunteer
efforts and generally keeps the operation chugging ahead. Thank you,
Tom, for all your incredible work!
Look for Tom on the Subversive stage yet again in
our upcoming production of 84 in January of 2010.
