I once wrote a review dedicated in large part to him. Couldn’t help it. He was that good. I can’t remember the show, damnit. Getting old. But my memory’s not so senile that I’d forget the good part.
Tony hasn’t received a lot of top billing in the theater. He doesn’t need to since he steals the show most of the time anyway.
As a professional actor, Tony has credits in national commercials, industrial videos, and commercial print. He has worked with many professional theater companies throughout the United States. In addition to performing onstage as a member of Actors’ Equity Association, the union of professional theater performers and stage managers, Tony serves as Chair of the Arizona Equity Liaison Committee.
A native of the state of Oklahoma and graduate of the University of Tulsa, Tony has also studied at the Guildford School of Acting in Surrey, England, the London College of Music, The Defense Language Institute in Monterey, CA, and the Alliance Française in Paris. He earned his Master’s Degree in Theater from Arizona State University and worked in the ASU Theater Department for 10 years. Multilingual, Tony was a Czechoslovakian, North Vietnamese and French translator in the United States Army, and also served in the United States Navy as a commissioned officer aboard a guided missile cruiser!
But that’s not all! In addition to the military, Tony’s eclectic background includes various positions such as Managing Director of the Barrington Stage Company in Massachusetts, Business Manager for the biennial International Youth Arts Festival and Executive Director of the Metro-Phoenix Theater Awards of Excellence.
As Head of Installation and Training of Prologue software with Tickets.com’s Internet Ticketing Group, Tony oversaw the program installation process and conducted training at client sites that included race tracks, educational and religious institutions, sports teams, theaters and performing arts centers across the country. Tony also worked as a member of the ticketing technical support team during the 2000 Summer Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, and the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, UT.
