Success, success and more success. Jake keeps raising the bar in quality and quantity of work. Just to name three of his best-known shows – DEGRASSI, DESIGNATED SURVIVOR, SUITS – barely touches the work he has done. On Broadway, Jake created the role of Gerry Goffin in the long-running hit BEAUTIFUL: THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL. As a professional he follows the hallmark plan of: audition, work, practice. Best to you Jake to keep going on this road. And, I have the great joy of coaching him.
