Other theatre credits include, Ain’t Misbehavin’ (Central Square/GBSC/Front Porch Arts Collective), Once On This Island (SpeakEasy Stage), Hair (New Rep) and Tuck Everlasting (Umbrella Stage Company). When Anthony isn’t on stage, he works in EdTech. He is originally from Dorchester, MA, and loves that the theatre scene is back in action. Anthony also wants to thank his family and friends who constantly support the arts and continuously encourage him to follow his dream in performing arts.
