Act II Playhouse has been an artistic home for Tony since 2003 when he first began appearing in many of Act II‘s most popular productions, including My Fair Lady, Art, Say Goodnight Gracie, Heeere’s Tony!, First Impressions and Look Mom, I’m Swell! Tony began his tenure as Artistic Director here in 2012, and since that time has written, directed, and/or starred in dozens of shows, including Electile Dysfunction, Didn’t Your Father Have This Talk With You?, Driving Miss Daisy, Forbidden Broadway, and several by Neil Simon. For over two decades, Tony has worked in and around Philadelphia as a director, comic, writer, emcee, and actor with theatres such as the Kimmel Center, Arden Theatre Company, Philadelphia Theatre Company, Montgomery Theater, 1812 Productions, Delaware Theatre Company, and the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival, among others. Tony is a 13-time Barrymore Award nominee, a four-time emcee, and a three-time winner (two wins for performances at Act II: The Big Bang and The Story of My Life). Since 1995 Tony has also been the Director of Dramatics at his beloved alma mater, St. Joseph’s Prep.
