  1. I met Tom two years ago when we made up two-thirds of the male ensemble in a production of Cole Porter's Red Hot and Blue. We played senators, gangsters and other assorted parts. There's a reason they don't write shows like that anymore. It was madcap!
    I asked Tom to fill in for the actor playing Dick at the first reading of The Playhouse. We were so impressed with his take on Dick that when the other actor was unable to commit to the shoot, I was kind of glad he couldn't do it. Tom turned about to be the perfect Dick.
    I can't imagine anyone else as Dick.
