Jacob performed Off--Broadway in PENELOPE, OR HOW THE ODYSSEY WAS REALLY WRITTEN at The York Theatre Company. Jacob originated the role of Bassanio in the World Premiere of this Musical Comedy.
"The most hilarious highlights of the show are provided by the suitors... whose perfect comic timing, flamboyant characterizations, sidesplitting moves and poses, and flawless vocal harmonies, as they move from competition to camaraderie, consistently elicit laughter and embrace the spirit of over-the-top parody."
—Deb Miller, DC MEtro Theatre Arts
While living in New York, Jacob has had the pleasure of making music with some incredible artists. Watch his rendition of "When Sunny Gets Blue" with the incomparable Darnell White at Fraunces Tavern.
Last summer, Jacob starred as Sammy in the World Premiere Musical SURVIVING THE ROSENTHALS.
"This new musical introduces us to Sammy, a sensitive and creative songwriter damaged by an overbearing and abusive father. Sammy enters therapy to understand his relationship with his girlfriend and his father, but more importantly to heal himself and break free of the childhood shackles that still stifle him as an adult."
