BIOGRAPHY:

Anthony and Thomas met each other while college students in Connecticut. Together, they wrote a comedy column for the school newspaper, and together, they were fired from this position. Through a student-run theatre department, they explored their passion for theater. Following graduation, they started Backhouse Productions. For years, Thomas and Anthony were barely scraping by, working 18 hours a day and surviving on spaghettios, but they were both incredibly happy. They now run the successful theatre company and recently created Freestyle Love Supreme, a freestyle rap show.
