Top Ten/Recommended
“A well-acted and entertaining addition to Warhol lore. Dana Jackson’s sure-handed direction draws terrific work from her cast. Enjoyable look at a lesser-known period of Warhol’s life”Stage Raw

“The skill of Melocchi’s writing is matched by the remarkable acting work of Stevenson and Chariton. Together they breathe life into every line…creating flesh-and-blood characters that hold you in thrall from start to finish” Total Theater

“With a well-written script and two very capable actors breathing life into quirky Andy and stolid Bonsey, ANDY WARHOL’S TOMATO has taken a cute and certainly untrue story from Andy Warhol’s early life and turned into a play with a profound and timeless message for all… 100% Sweet”
Better Lemons

“Your heartstring will be pulled.” Broadway World


“…the play succeeds on every level.
I highly recommend you see this small gem”
The Santa Monica Daily Press

When a teenage Andy Warhol finds himself in the basement of a working class bar in Pittsburgh, PA, he discovers inspiration, guidance and friendship from a surprising source.


“Vince Melocchi’s quietly touching two-hander…offers more than a biographical sketch thanks to the reciprocal fleeting connection between Chariton’s Warhol and Stevenson’s equally complex performance as Bones. A surprising olive branch in the culture wars”
LA Times

“Not-to-be-missed. This is a play which exquisitely traces the steps…to an understanding about creativity and life in general”
Splash Mags

“A well-written script and two very capable actors…talented playwright Vince Melocchi fleshes out this bare bones fiction with infinite delicacy and gentle grace. A profound and timeless message for all. Kudos for director Dana Jackson’s tender handling of dynamics which, in lesser hands, might falter”

“We go to the theater for unique experiences and on rare occasions we’re rewarded with something transcendent. Something like Andy Warhol’s Tomato… This is art.”.
Larchmont Buzz

“Derek Chariton has gotten really good at painting pictures of tomatoes.” an interview by the LA Times with Andy Warhol’s Tomato actor Derek Chariton
