Happy Birthday, Tom!

 

Today we celebrate Tom Mison,

 

the man with the best left eyebrow

 

and the nicest calves in the business.

 

He is charming,

 

funny,

 

clever,

 

and very, very humble.

 

Please give a tip o' the hat to Tom,

 

and wish him the most wonderful of birthdays.

 

Here's hoping he has a fantastic day filled with joy and laughter and many happy returns.

 

Feel free to leave your birthday greetings below in the comments, or tweet them today using the hashtag #TMisBDay. No guarantee he'll see them, but putting good wishes out into the world is never a bad idea, eh?

The Way of the World: Final Performances Today

 

 

Today marks the final two performances of the Donmar Warehouse's The Way of the World, and we say goodbye to Tom's wicked Fainall. The play was so well received, with many marveling that the cast was able to make a restoration comedy, with its maze of relationships, plot twists and complicated language, such a delight. Congratulations to the cast and the director, James Macdonald, for a job well done!
