Tony Nappo is a Canadian actor who graduated from the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York and has appeared in critically acclaimed television, film and stage productions.
Tony was preparing for Coal Mine Theatre’s production of the pulitzer prize winning drama “Cost of Living” when theatres were shut down to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and everything changed.
As well as discussing parenting and acting, Tony shares the story of how he managed to kick his drug habit after a 5-day bender that almost killed him.
Tony writes the weekly column Nappoholics Anonymous on IntermissionMagazine.ca. It’s a no-bullshit, thoughtful, uncensored, and only occasionally unsafe for work bunch of sentences well worth reading.

Dave Merheje won the Juno award for best comedy album with his 2018 release “Good Friend Bad Grammar.”
I’ve been hoping to interview Merheje since I first saw him perform a killer set at the Winnipeg Comedy Festival. His rhythmic comedic style celebrates family and personal frustrations that truly spoke to me, not only as a fan of comedy but more significantly as a father and a son.
Watch for his upcoming regular appearance in the Hulu show “Ramy,” with Ramy Youssef, which starts streaming April 19.

Steffi DiDomenicantonio is currently performing in the Toronto production of “Come From Away.”
At the age of 29 she’s achieved great things and I know her career is just beginning.
Although Steffi rose to national prominence as a finalist in the 2006 season of “Canadian Idol,” she’s been a musical theatre performer for most of her life.
In our conversation, Steffi explains the secret to her success and how a vision board helped her focus on a dream gig performing in the first Broadway national tour of “Spring Awakening.”
She has a great story about her “Come From Away” audition.
We also talk about her television work on “Crawford” with Mike Clattenburg, best known as a creator, writer and director of the comedy series “Trailer Park Boys.”
