[2/9/16] Congratulations to Jake Epstein as he prepares to take the stage tonight in his new play, Straight! The former Degrassi star plays lead character Ben…I’ll just let the description tell you more about him:
Meet Ben. Ben is a 26-year investment banker. Ben likes beer, sports, and Emily. And Chris.
Funny, sad, sexy, and surprising, this three-character drama meditates on fidelity, identity, and the moral complex of a generation that prides itself on the pretense of acceptance.
Straight also stars Jenna Gavigan and Thomas Sullivan, and is directed by Andy Sandberg. Previews begin tonight at Acorn Theatre at Theater Row. Opening night is February 29, and the show runs through May 8. For ticket info and more, click here.
