That was my favorite line from my time in And Then They Came For Me, so it's only fitting that I use it as my triumphant return to blogging. I thank all of my fans (read: Carolyn) that waited with baited breath for me to slouch back to relevance.
Some things have happened! Let me inform you.
- I wrapped up my time at Georgia Ensemble doing the afforementioned And Then They Came For Me, and I feel like much more a part of the Atlanta scene. I mean, they've been doing this show for, like, 13 years. I can name at least five friends off the top of my head that have done this show, and that doesn't even count the people who were in it with me. All in all, it was a good experience. I loved the folks out there and here's hoping I'll be there again next season.
- I have two (count 'em) shows coming up this summer. First, I have reasons to be pretty (It kills me to not capitalize that...) for a brand new company in Atlanta, the Pinch N' Ouch Theatre. Second, Sally and Glen at The Palace, written by Mr. Peter Hardy (my director for ATTCFM) for The Essential Theatre Festival. I've got to be honest, I'm super excited about both of them. They are tied for "First time Jacob has been a lead in Atlanta" and they're each deep, contemporary plays that I can really sink my teeth in to. Hopefully, you'll be able to make it out to one or both of them.
- After that, Middle School The Musical is coming back to The Alliance stage, so I've got three shows coming up, which is just lovely. Only a couple of slots left for the rest of the year. Book me soon! I'm very popular right now.
- Other than that, personal life is what it is. Go to Manny's with me some time. We'll talk all about it.
I'll make an effort to be on this more, but for now, that's a good update. Consider yourselves updated.
