Michael Jay

 

Michael's career started in his hometown of Needham, Massachusetts, where he performed in Needham High School productions like The Odd Couple, Chicago, and Les Miserables. After graduating high school, he studied at NYU Tisch's Experimental Theater Wing before returning to the Greater Boston Area to continue his journey. Recent credits include Jack (The Importance of Being Earnest) at the Footlight Club and Harold Hill (The Music Man) at the Savoyard Light Opera Company. He is also to appear in the Yorick Ensemble's inaugural production of The Pirates of Penzance.

To Michael, the role of Paul Bratter holds a lot of appeal because of the honesty of his character. His role shifts from one of passive frustration to active anger, and the way his feelings towards Corie evolve over the course of the play offers a lot of richness. Having played Felix Unger in the past, Michael is excited to explore the similarities and differences of the characters and how they handle issues of love, anxiety, and control. Michael couldn't be more excited to be doing this show at the Concord Players, and with such a talented cast and crew, he knows that this show will be a must-see.
