Batt, a New Orleans native, told Playbill.com that he and Cianfichi, who have been together for 25 years, met during a production of Evita at the Carousel Dinner Theatre in Akron, OH.
"I was Che. Tom was in the ensemble and the Magaldi cover. We met and fell, and have been together ever since," Batt wrote.
Batt and Cianfichi were legally married in New York City several weeks ago. Friends and family gathered for the wedding ceremony, which took place in the courtyard of the landmark New Orlean's establishment, Commander's Palace.
Batt's credits also include Sunset Boulevard, Saturday Night Fever, La Cage aux Folles, Beauty and the Beast and The Scarlet Pimpernel. His screen work includes "Jeffrey," "12 Years a Slave" and "Parkland."
The couple, who reside in New Orleans, also own the home decor store, Hazelnut.
