REVIEWS

“The show is, in the end, an elegy for a father...a portrait of a father's poignant legacy and what struck me as a dead-on depiction of how a family diverges from a center.” ~The New York Times

CREATIVE TEAM

ALEXANDER THOMAS* (Actor/Playwright) originally performed Throw Pitchfork in the Kitchen's 12th season in 2002 fresh of its successful Off Broadway debut at The New York Theatre Workshop, before going on to close the 2004 Monodrama Festival in Kiel, Germany where it won a Special Honors Award. Kitchen audiences also know him from Sunset Baby, The Whipping Man, Opus, Broke-ology and After Ashley, as well the two-man farce Black Stuff co-written and performed with LeVan D.Hawkins for the Kitchen Counter Culture series.

Living around the world with his wife who works for the Foreign Service he has also racked up some impressive international credits as a cast member of the U.K. stage production of On the Waterfront directed by Steven Berkoff which ran in London's West End at the Royal Haymarket Theatre, as well the Edinburg Festival, Nottingham Playhouse, the Hong Kong Arts Festival, and won the UK'S What's On Stage Award for best Ensemble.

He spent two months in Luxembourg City in the inaugural production for the Actors Repertory Theatre Luxemburg playing the role of Ross in Edward Albee's The Goat or Who is Sylvia?

While living in Berlin, Germany, he performed in Utopia/Dystopia at the English Theatre of Berlin as well as participating in Colorblind? a series of staged readings exploring issues of diversity in Germany. His two act play Schwarz Gemacht (made black) was also produced at the English Theatre of Berlin (with help from Kitchen Theatre Company) in 2014 and brought back for a second run in 2015. It also had a reading, that same year, at the New Black Theater Festival's annual staged reading series at the Lark Theater in New York. He recently made his Toronto stage debut in Jason Maghnoy's original play Hangman at the Storefront Theatre.

His training includes the Stella Adler Studio and the Meisner Technique with Richard Pinter. www.alexthomasactor.com
