ONE NIGHT ONLY!!!
Chestnut Street Playhouse is proud to welcome one of our favorite theater artists to our stage for a special performance of his one-person show
to benefit our theater!
Pain, frustration, financial-insecurity: all for the love of the theatre. This one-person show tells the story of a previous small-town-actor turned NYC-failure turned semi-successful-playwright. Exploring the ups, downs, lefts and rights of pursuing a career in the arts.
Jake Alexander is CT-born playwright and theatre artist. He has participated in the BOOST Mentorship Program with Off the Lane Co., Foster’s Artistic Residency “Cultivating Curiosity”, and the Script Share program with The Playwright’s Realm. Jake’s work has been produced by Equity Library Theatre, Christopher Newport University, Soop Theatre Co., the Player's Theatre of the West Village, Jakespeare Virtual Theatre Co., NY Theatre Festival, Chestnut Street Playhouse, Broward College, NY Theatre Festival Summerfest, and Emerging Artist Theatre Co. Jake has been published in Qu Literary Magazine and Literature Today Webzine. He is a 2014 graduate of Boston College and works in the School of Journalism at NYU. Jake currently resides with his partner and cat, who he is training to speak (unsuccessful at this point).
