Andy Warhol's Tomato

Pacific Resident Theatre
703 Venice Blvd. Venice

When a teenage Andy Warhol finds himself in the basement of a working-class bar in Pittsburgh, PA, he receives inspiration, guidance and friendship from a surprising source. Funny and poignant, Andy Warhol’s Tomato is a world premiere play by Vince Melocchi (himself a Pittsburgh native — as is Andy Warhol).

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...Amid the ongoing culture wars between urban-elite and blue-collar sensibilities, Melocchi’s period play slyly reminds us the division can be bridged by our fundamental human need to create. In the process we can become something more than what our circumstances have shaped us to be."

Broadway World - Recommended

"...1946, Hometead, PA, TOMATO opens with a semi-conscious Andy waking up after being rescued prone off the street in front of Bonino's by Bones. TOMATO presents an intimate, quiet look at the various encounters Andy and Bones have after Andy agrees to compensate for a picture frame of Bones he damaged, with the painting of Bonino's new front door sign. Melocchi sprinkles enough known facts of Warhol's life to make you wonder, really wonder, if you're watching a non-fiction depiction rather than the well-constructed story Melocchi made up."
