Thom Thomas, Stage and Screen Writer, Dies at 80
Thom Thomas, a writer for stage, TV and film, succumbed to acute leukemia on Wednesday in Los Angeles. He was 80.

Thomas had recently co-written, with Iris Rainer Dart, the book for “Beaches, The Musical,” adapted from Dart’s popular novel. “Beaches” had a tryout in Chicago at the Drury Lane Theatre last summer, and a Broadway transfer is pending availability of a theater. And production is planned for spring on Thomas’ completed screenplay adaptation of the novel “Vanished.”

It’s a puzzling sensation, and sometimes Simon Stephens’s midlife-walkabout is merely that: puzzling. Sometimes it approaches ghostly sublimity. This seems to depend entirely on the deployment of its central, title character, a 43-year-old wife and mother from the London exurbs (nobody here is from the center of anything) played with intensity, invisible precision, and quiet commitment by Mary McCann.We meet Harper in a series of sequential but atomized vignettes, each performed in an ever-so-slightly different style, as she goes on a Dante-esque odyssey from Uxbridge — where money is tight, her marriage to troubled Seth (Gareth Saxe) is stalling out, and her daughter Sarah (Madeleine Martin) regards her with pity and disdain — to Stockport, near Manchester, where her father is dying.
