August 25 - September 11, 1999 at the Gateway Playhouse - (Long Island, NY):

 Tom is played the role of John Hancock, president of the Continental Congress. This show has vibrant music and verbal fireworks about the forging of a nation. Fresh from its Broadway run, this critically acclaimed musical provides an interesting slant on our recent current events! See a very different debate unfold as two hundred years ago our founding fathers decided the fate of America. A witty, fast paced, riveting show, with great music, great characters and lessons for all of us. 

 

Tom Schmid is a strong presence as John Hancock." 
Lee Davis for The Southampton Press, September 2, 1999

"A satisfying show." 
Alvin Klein for The New York Times, September 5, 1999

"On-target casting, first-rate performances, lively direction and solid musical direction have combined to make this a top-notched revival of an astonishing show." 
Lee Davis for The Southampton Press, September 2, 1999

"The performance was engaging, enlightening and absolutely entertaining." 
Deborah Kulka-MacLellan for Suffolk Life, September 1, 1999

"And we were always taught that history lessons couldn't be fun ... Gateway Playhouse must have missed that lesson because they've managed to put together an enjoyable musical comedy." 
Frank S. Costanza for The Long Island Advance, September 2, 1999

"A vibrantly alive history lesson." 

Lee Davis for Newsday, August 27, 1999

October 20, 2002 on the WB: 

Tom played the part of a successful Senatorial Candidate, whose life is destroyed by those nasty characters on the show. The best part of this episode, entitled

Tom was an understudy for the principal roles of Frank Butler (Tom Wopat), Buffalo Bill (Conrad John Schuck), and Chief Sitting Bull (Larry Storch). On the nights that he was not covering any of those roles, Tom played the role of Mac.

It's Back!!! 7th Annual Production! Everybody has a "hidden" past -- The type of stuff that the tabloids are searching to discover for tomorrow's headlines. Well, it's time to beat them to the punch! Tom will once again appear in A Barry Birthday Bash. This cabaret show is an unabashed bash honoring the divine Mr. Manilow's birthday and offers reverence and camp. It ran at the Bryant-Lake Bowl for three years straight in Minneapolis (Tom was only involved in the 1st. year). The show was such a suprising success, that played for many encore performances. Well, the Twin-Cities producers are now in New York, and they are bringing the bash to Don't Tell Mama (343 West 46th St.). You'll laugh, you'll cry, it will touch your soul. Really.

Here's what the critics' are saying. . .

"No one does a Manilow power ballad better than Tom Schmid: This up-and-coming musical theater star planted his feet and commanded the room with "Who Needs to Dream." 
Barbara & Scott Siegel for TheaterMania.com.  
June 21, 2002

"One of the discoveries of the evening was Tom Schmid, who displayed a thrilling voice in "Ready to Take a Chance Again" and a heroic romanticism in "Who Needs to Dream."

July 12-19, 1999 issue

"Tom Schmid ... has a wonderful stage presence and a pleasing, clarion voice which he uses to full advantage..."

Star-Tribune 
June 13, 1996

"Barry Birthday Bash -- "Happy Birthday" is a pretty dreary melody compared to the greatest hits of Barry Manilow. . . Tom Schmid will sing a medley of Manilow's commercial jingles, including "Like a good neighbor, State Farm is there."" [Oh boy!]
