He appeared at the Chelsea Theater Center of Brooklyn and at the off-Broadway Westside Theatre in Heinrich von Kleist's play, The Prince of Homburg.[1] The play was videotaped for the PBS series, Great Performances, and later released as a DVD.

Morfogen appeared in 1988's comedy Illegally Yours as the judge.

In 2001 reprised his role as Bob in the Off-Broadway premiere of “Uncle Bob,” by Austin Pendleton, who wrote the role with Morfogen in mind.
