Tobias Truvillion Stars as Booth in Pulitzer Prize-Winning Play, ‘Topdog/Underdog’


Tobias Truvillion, who in 1999 embarked on his pursuit of acting at The National Black Theater of Harlem, was honored to play the role of Booth in Writer/Director Suzi-Lori Park’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play ‘Topdog/Underdog’ in 2012. The two-character drama centers on inter-race relations in a post-racial society where the two young brothers, Lincoln and Booth, deal with the hardships of living in a “dog-eat-dog world.”

During the play’s occupancy at Two River Theater Company in Red Bank, NJ, actor Branden Dierdan starred as Booth, the younger of the two protagonist, and Tobias was selected as his alternate. On nights Tobias wasn’t on stage playing his wanna-be three-card monte player character, the award-winning actor had a great time entertaining guests in the theater lobby with his newfound “hustle.”
