Our alumni are working on Broadway, national tours, in regional theatres across the country, as well as film and television. Here’s where a few can be seen this month:
Actor, playwright, TheatreWorks veteran, and Tony nominee Colman Domingo (Blues for an Alabama Sky, Fences, Amadeus, and Wild with Happy), is currently playing Strand on AMC’S Fear the Walking Dead. His play, Dot, recently opened at New York City’s Vineyard Theatre with fellow TW alumni Sharon Washington (Wild with Happy) in the cast.
Domingo’s Broadway credits include The Scottsboro Boys, Chicago, and Passing Strange. His film and television credits include Lincoln, The Butler, The Knick, 42, as well as playing Ralph Abernathy in last year’s critically acclaimed Selma.
Cassie Beck (Be Aggressive, Living Out, and All My Sons) is starring in The Humans on Broadway, directed by Joe Mantello.
Dani Marcus (2007’s Emma) is on tour with A Gentlemen’s Guide to Love and Murder.
Ross Lekites (Triangle) recently joined the cast of Kinky Boots on Broadway.
Salisha Thomas and Paris Nix (both of Once on this Island) are on tour with Beautiful. Suzanne Grodner (Peter and the Starcatcher, The Great Pretender, and 2007’s Emma, among others) is in the cast as well.
Memphis writer Joe DiPietro’s play Clever Little Lies, starring Marlo Thomas, is playing at the Westside Theatre in New York. Due to popular demand, Clever Little Lies was recently extended to run through the end of March.
