The Hilberry remembers Michael Tolan

The New York Times has reported that veteran actor of Broadway, film and television, Michael Tolan, has died at the age of 85.  Born Seymour Tuchow on Nov. 27, 1925, in Detroit, he graduated from Wayne State University in 1947.  Mr. Tolan was a strong supporter of the Hilberry and Wayne State Theatres.  As recently as November of 2009, Mr. Tolan returned to the Hilberry to perform poetry and promote WSU Theatres with the show A Man, A Woman and A Cello. His legacy lives on in the Tolan-Tuchow Scholarship, which is awarded to a theatre student every year.
