Photos: First Look at About Face Theatre's A KID LIKE JAKE


About Face Theatre is pleased to continue its 2014-15 season with the Chicago premiere of A KID LIKE JAKE, Daniel Pearle's contemporary dramedy about parenting, gender and fitting in. Directed by Keira Fromm, A KID LIKE JAKE will play now through March 15, 2015 at the Greenhouse Theater Center (Upstairs Studio), 2257 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago. The press opening is Thursday, February 12 at 7:30 pm. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast onstage below!

A KID LIKE JAKE will feature Cindy Gold (Loving Repeating, Showboat), Katherine Keberlein (Smokefall, When the Rain Stops Falling), Michael Aaron Lindner (Music Man, Brigadoon, King Lear) and Jessica Dean Turner (Season on the Line, TV''s Crisis).

Alexandra and Greg's intelligent and precocious four year-old son Jake is a leading candidate for enrollment in one of Manhattan''s top kindergarten programs. But when attention turns to his passion for Cinderella and dress-up, Jake's gender non-conforming behavior becomes a lightning rod, calling into question assumptions about gender, class, education and acceptance through the lens of 21st century parenting.

The production team for A KID LIKE JAKE includes Dan Stratton (scenic design), Mieka van der Ploeg (costume design), Christine Binder (lighting design), Christopher Kriz (sound design) and Emily Guthrie (props design).

Tickets are available at, by calling (773) 404-7336 or in person at the Greenhouse Theater Center Box Office.
