Show-Score’s Founders

Tom Melcher
Founder and Chairman
Tom is a self-described “theater and software geek,” who grew up doing community theater and programming minicomputers, before switching to a capella and coding at Yale. After stints with IBM and McKinsey, and with a Harvard MBA, he plunged into the internet startup scene, and was on the senior management teams of several successful companies, including CNET and MongoDB. Tom created Show-Score because even as a seasoned theater-goer, it was simply too hard to figure out which shows to see.
