LemonWade’s Friend Thom Thomas Dies

Thom Thomas (pictured), who died in Los Angeles on December 2nd, was a longtime friend of LemonWade. He would regularly send me emails about plays or movies he had seen, urging me to notice this actor or that director. Thomas had a long, strong career in the theatre, film, and television. He collaborated with Iris Rainer Dart, the “Beaches” novelist who co-authored the screenplay to the popular 1988 film, to bring the musical adaptation to the stage. The production was staged last summer at the Chicago-area’s Drury Lane Theatre. A Broadway transfer is expected, but no dates or theatre have been announced.
