Jason Jacoby Biography

A rising talent in the bustling New York theater scene, Jason Jacoby is equally at home as an actor, puppeteer, and singer. Born and raised in Montrose, NY, a small hamlet nestled off the east slope of the Hudson River, Jason took a strong interest in performing at an early age. Heavily influenced by his icon, Jim Henson, Jason has been improvising puppet movies since the ripe old age of five. He starred in musicals throughout middle and high school, appearing in such works as Guys and Dolls, Damn Yankees, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, The Sound of Music, and Godspell.
Jason will end the 2012 season by joining the cast of Avenue Q Off-Broadway at New World Stages, playing Nicky/Trekkie/Bear. No stranger to Avenue Q, he recently starred in Smithtown PAC's and Skylight Music Theatre's productions, directed by Broadway luminaries Rick Lyon and Donna Drake, respectively.
Other engagements in the 2012 season included Park Playhouse's production of Cabaret, where he has been lauded for his "shatteringly vulnerable" portrayal (Time's Union) of the Master of Ceremonies. Previously at Park Playhouse, Jason also played Leo Bloom in the 2011 season smash hit, The Producers, where he was branded as "utterly winning as the nerdy Leo Bloom", and Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast.
Past credits include | Off-Broadway: G.B.S. (Sam, U.S. Premiere, Clockwork Theatre). Off-off B'way: Reckless (Roy/Tim Timko, The Gallery Players), Welcome to New Jersey (Martin, Vital Theatre), Men in a Bottle (John, TheaterVision). Workshops/readings: Le Hot Blu (Doc Henschel, New York Theatre Workshop), The Piper (Finian/others, Capital Repertory Theatre), Red Masquerade (Richard Trent/Tim, Shadowland Theatre), WoO (Scarecrow, Full of Noises), as well as numerous readings with Dialogue with Three Chords.
Jason holds a B.A. in Theatre Arts from S.U.N.Y. New Paltz where he appeared in Tartuffe (Valere), Sunday in the Park with George (Franz/Bob), Anything Goes (Billy Crocker), Lucky Stiff (Man 1), One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (Cheswick), A Flea in Her Ear (Tournel), and Batboy: The Musical (Dr. Parker).
