Longtime audience favorite Mark Anderson Phillips has enjoyed a long and varied career on the TheatreWorks Silicon Valley stage, appearing in everything from farcical comedies to contemporary dramas to classic period pieces. One of the most recognizable faces in Bay Area theatre, Phillips returns as a conflicted son desperately trying to reason with his aging mother in Eric Coble’s The Velocity of Autumn. As we approach Opening Night, let’s take a look back at just a few of his many memorable roles here at TheatreWorks:
