Erin interviews fellow multi-racial Broadway actor Thom Sesma. Thom Sesma’s New York career began with his Broadway debut in the original production of La Cage Aux Folles in 1984. Recent credits include the title role in the off-Broadway revival of Sweeney Todd; Classic Stage Company’s Arturo Ui and Pacific Overtures, for which he was nominated for a Lortel Award. His most recent work includes Unknown Soldier, by Daniel Goldstein and the late Michael Freidman, which had just opened at Playwrights Horizon and abruptly closed in the fight against COVID-19.
During this time, Thom has been active with live-stream performances, recordings and projects in development, including Public Theatre/WNYC’s Richard II, NAATCO’s First Read presentation of Romeo and Juliet, and Paradise Lost for Hudson Valley Shakespeare, along with Misalliance and Mrs. Warren’s Profession for The Gingold Group on Seth Rudetsky’s Plays in the House. As an actor of mixed-race heritage (Basque-American and Japanese) he is a strong advocate for diversity in all aspects of the entertainment industry, from performance to production to management.
