Tom Forde has been doing a little bit of everything lately. The last time we posted about him, he was taking time off from his ensemble work at the Zurich Opera to play the 7-11 clerk Omar in a Doritos commercial. He's also been mixing in a lot of musical theater work, singing in The Addams Family and Les Misérables.
This season, he'll be at the Madison Opera in both musical theater and opera. First up he'll portray the evil Judge Turpin in Sondheim's Sweeney Todd, which runs from February 6-8 at the Capitol Theater. He'll return in April to sing Don Basilio in Rossini's The Barber of Seville. Tickets for both shows are available online.
