TheatreWorks Alumni: Where are they now? February 2016

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:


AMC’S Fear the Walking Dead

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.
