The reviews are rolling in for Thomas Sweitzer's play with music 20 Seconds. The solo play officially opened September 21 at the Pershing Square Signature Center after beginning previews September 10, and is set to continue through October 21.
Jeremy Scott Blaustein directs the work, which won Best Solo Performance at the 2022 Capital Fringe Festival.
Sweitzer grew up in 1970s blue-collar Pennsylvania, where his Italian mother's meatballs could cure all ailments, and his father's schizophrenia and alcoholism were fuel to a raging fire. One day, Tom ran out of the house and into the church across the street, and he met a woman who gave him a gift that would alter the course of his life: music.
