Tom Dudzick had his first play, Greetings! produced off-Broadway at the John Houseman Theatre, starring Darren McGavin; it is now a holiday favorite all across the country. Mr. Dudzick went on to write a comedic semi-autobiographical series of plays about growing up Catholic in Buffalo called the Over the Tavern Trilogy, which has been one of the biggest grass roots successes in American regional theatre. Mr. Dudzick's home theatre, Buffalo's Studio Arena, then commissioned his idea about a parochial school novice who takes religion into her own hands, entitled Hail Mary!. Next up for Studio Arena was Don't Talk to the Actors, a hilarious semi-autobiographical backstage comedy, which boasted a star-studded cast including Denny Dillon, Richard Kline, and Lewis J. Stadlen. Mr. Dudzick's newest work, Miracle on South Division Street is based on a local Buffalo legend wherein the Blessed Virgin Mary materialized in a barbershop in the author's old neighborhood. The comedy was produced off-Broadway, where it was praised by audiences and the The New York Times. Mr. Dudzick lives in Nyack, New York with his wife and two children.
