ABOUT THE ARTIST
Originally from Boston Massachusetts, Matt grew up on showtunes and Boston sports. Matt studied theatre at both University of Southern Maine and The Boston Conservatory before heading down Rte 95 to NYC in 2004. In June of 2009 Matt got the call to make his broadway debut in the TONY winning production of HAIR with TONY winner Diane Paulus at the helm. Matt continued with that production “Across the Atlantic Sea” to The West End in the role of “Woof” and then launched the 1st National US Tour of HAIR and was seen back on Broadway in the “Summer of Love” revival of HAIR. Following his time with the hippies, Matt launched the 1st National tour of Green Day’s AMERICAN IDIOT as the “Representative from Jingletown”. Matt’s cross country adventures continued in 2014 with the 1st National Tour of ONCE, where he played “Svec” and 5 instruments. Collectively over the last 5 years Matt is a veteran of almost 2000 performances. Thankfully Matt returned home to Broadway (again with Diane Paulus) in the hit musical WAITRESS, where he has starred opposite TONY winner Jessie Mueller, 2 time Grammy winner Jason Mraz, and 7 time Grammy nominee, and the shows composer, Sara Bareilles, and can now be seen in the WAITRESS National Tour as Earl opposite his real life fiancee, Christine Dwyer, as Jenna. On television Matt has made many performance appearances with these multiple shows, including the Macys Thanksgiving Parade. Matt can also be seen on Person of Interest, Madam Secretary, and Marvel’s Daredevil. Matt lives with his beautiful fiancee and fellow performer (and Bostonian) Christine Dwyer, and their Boston Terrier “Chowdah". Matt can now be seen in the World Premiere of Secret Life of Bees at the Atlantic Theatre Company.
