Tom Toce Nominated for a MAC Award for Songwriter in the House
Tom was one of only three nominees in the NYC Debut – Male category this year. Tom finished the run of Songwriter in the House at the Metropolitan Room on February 13. Victoria Ordin, writing in Cabaret Scenes, called the show “an entertaining hour of story and song.” It was a pick-of-the-week in Cabaret Scenes in December.
