Tommaso was born and grew up in Northern Italy. During high school he lived in Japan, then moved to Dublin, Ireland, where he attended the Gaiety School of Acting. He eventually landed in New York where he graduated at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and was later invited to join their Company. On stage he worked, like most, off off broadway, off of Broadway (on the street at a nearby corner), in theatres designed by Satan to expand Hell, eventually making it to some off broadway and a little broadway too. He worked on Rescue Me, some soaps, had a few big parts in small movies and a few small parts in big movies.
In his spare time he enjoys sleeping(it’s like dying, but less committed), reading, writing, combinations of the three in various locations.
He really, really likes this play and wishes you will, too.
He’d also like to thank his family and friends for their loving, sometimes misguided and often crippling support.

Evan Zelnick is, in a word, bananas. He works tirelessly to shape his career path similarly to his idol and real-life doppelganger, small-screen legend Della Reese. He is currently a member of two sketch comedy groups, called Potluck and Odd Sqodd, respectlessly, and is also working on a 2-person show tentatively titled “On The Pot” with another maniacal cohort of his. He has starred in one feature film and 23 short films that have to be seen to be believed… and, therefore, none of you will ever believe them. He was also hired to play a real-life “Where’s Waldo” for the past 3 years, cleverly capitalizing on his bizarre appearance. The asylum he lives in generously allows him to leave in order to work on all of these projects. If any of you can assist him (in any way), he would appreciate it… See you at the Oscars!
