It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of performance artist and writer Thomas Lee Murrin who, surrounded by his wife Patricia and friends, died on March 12, 2012 of complications from cancer. He was 73.
Tom Murrin created non-traditional theater as both the Alien Comic and then later as Jack Bump and tirelessly supported generations of younger artists. Tom will be missed not only by his family and friends, but also by the greater New York performance community who celebrates Tom’s humorous, heartfelt artistry and shares his passion for non-traditional theater created freely and without restrictions.
