do does... like he wants to be back on Broadway! The Mrs. Doubtfire star has been hard at work creating a very special Quarantine version of Hairspray's "Good Morning, Baltimore" and you can check it out below!
"[Jake] had this idea to use mine and Scott Wittman's song to express himself and here is the wonderful result!" says Hairspray composer and co-lyricist Marc Shaiman. "I only insisted that he follow our rhyme scheme and that all his rhymes be perfect, not sort of rhymes'. And he did it! He is a great kid, a real old show-biz soul, and I hope lots of people see this video, because he deserves all the applause that Covid-19 stole from him!"
Jake previously starred on Broadway in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Regional: A Christmas Carol, Shrek, Billy Elliot, Mary Poppins (IRNE Award), Singin' in the Rain, Mame, and Peter Pan (IRNE Award) TV: "John Mulaney & The Sack Lunch Bunch."
