Tony Mowatt is an outstanding, versatile performer whose vocal flexibility is wowing audiences all over the world. Heralded as a “tour de force” by The Westfield Leader and “superb” by Peter Filichia (MTI), Tony’s immaculately detailed work brings a fresh and gripping portrayal to each role he portrays. Recently, he made his return to Joe’s Pub in Christian De Gre Cardenás’ Twisted Operettas: Volume II. Additionally, he re-joined the National tour of Cats as the understudies for Bustopher Jones and Old Deuteronomy and returned to Bob Jones University as Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast. Engagements for this season include Ensemble/FDR cover/Warbucks cover for the National tour of Annie.
Tony’s exquisite musicianship and character development make him a favorite for developing new works in New York City. Most recently, Tony performed the role of the Father in the off-Broadway production of The Little Match Girl at St. Luke’s Theatre after making a smashing Off-Broadway debut in Christian De Gré Cardenas’s award-winning musical Whiskey Pants: The Mayor of Williamsburg as Charles, the powerful mayor of post-apocalyptic Williamsburg. Tony has gone on to sing more of Cardenas’s work at 54Below, Joe’s Pub at The Public Theatre, The Laurie Beechman, FRIGID NY, and BMI.
Other notable roles include Thomas Andrews in Titanic: The Musical with Bob Jones University; George Westinghouse in a workshop of Tesla, a new multidisciplinary opera about the extraordinary life of visionary Nikola Tesla; Roger Debris in The Producers, and Professor Callahan in Legally Blonde with Woodstock Playhouse; Luther Billis in South Pacific with Plays-in-the-Park; Leo Frank in Parade and Charles Guiteau in Assassins with Bullet Theatre Collaborative; and Pirelli in Sweeney Todd.
In addition to his vocal abilities, Tony is an accomplished musician with over twenty years of guitar and twelve years of piano experience under his belt. This puts him at a great advantage when it comes to learning new music, understanding composition, and accompanying himself on and off stage. Tony also regularly sings Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and other Great American Songbook tunes at venues throughout New Jersey.
Tony earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre from Kean University, where he studied under Dr. E. Teresa Choate, Holly Logue, Ernest Wiggins, and was directed by Bill Bowers as the Stage Manager in Our Town. In 2013, HB Studio Summer Intensive accepted Tony where he received instruction from Marion McCorry, Ed Morehouse, Carol Goodheart, and Arthur French. He currently studies under Tony-nominee Patrick Page.
