Mama's Boys are back with a brand new show after a successful run of their debut show in 2019 (including a return engagement on the stoop outside of Don't Tell Mama mid-pandemic in 2020)! Tommy J Dose, Brian Kalinowski, Paul Pilcz, and Jon Satrom all met while working in the Piano Bar of the world-famous Don't Tell Mama. They are once again collaborating with Musical Director, Elliot Roth, to put together a new show of all tunes from the 1980s featuring unique harmonious arrangements and medleys!

The "Mama's Boys" come from an array of different backgrounds ranging from Broadway to the High Seas to both National and International touring companies.

He has played many roles in many different regional theaters around the country. Some past credits include Buddy in Elf and Shrek in Shrek the Musical. Tommy also toured with the National and International companies of My Fair Lady.
