You might recognize him from shows like “The Sopranos“, “Law & Order“, “Sex & The City“, “Nurse Jackie“…and the list goes on.

I directed Tom on stage in “Family of strangers” and “Panic at the Riverside Motel” and this last one was the show where he shared the stage with our own Tom Burka.

Episode #1 “How it all started”

Welcome to our very first episode of  The Stage Door Podcast!

We are excited to start this new adventure and for our first show we decided to talk about how we started in the business and what inspired us to stick to it.

And as promised, here are a couple of pictures of our earlier performances.

Even though we don’t have a picture of Tom during his very first role as a 50 years old man in a wheel chair, we were able to find this great shot of him in The Devil’s Disciple by George Bernard Shaw, at Princeton University.

And here I am, during my very first performance at my elementary school for our Christmas show.

I think it’s safe to say that the stage was my world…
