About Buzz
Buzz has been in show business for nearly 40 years!  Part of the burgeoning Washington, DC theatre scene in the late 1970s-early 1980s, he was an original member of  Woolly Mammoth Theatre Co.  as well as  New Playwrights Theatre Of Washingto n and other theatres extant and departed.  He has made a living as a magician, juggler, mime and even performance art (don't ask). Just when the DC scene was getting red hot, he relocated to NYC.  You can't teach timing.
 
Not only a frequent face in the New York theatre scene , but theatres across the US and all over Europe.  He plays it all - blue collar to aristocrat; classical theatre or musical theatre; drama to farce. He has worked with artists famous, anonymous and ignominious. He's a classically-trained tenor, speaks several languages and is an expert dialectician.
 
Buzz’s on TV: 30 Rock; Flight Of The Conchords; Gotham; Younger (TV Land); Red Oaks (Amazon); HBO's The Deuce; Erroneous Convictions and the various Law & Order franchises.  In the movies: The Music Never Stopped; Quick Change; The Cowboy Way and many others.
 
While touring Europe in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, he met  Laurie Dawn , who was playing the title role. After wearing her down for a number of years, she agreed to marry him. They make their home in a peaceful village called  The Bronx  - one of only 3 cities in the world, including The Hague and The Vatican that begin with the letter, " The ")
 
Buzz is a proud member of Actors’ Equity and SAG-AFTRA .
