Mike Jacobs


Michael grew up (sic) in New York City during the era in which Side Man is set. A recognized virtuoso on jazz kazoo, he played with the Bowery Boys Blues Blowers Minus One, which, alas, gave only one semi-public performance. Michael then turned to acting, appearing with various local theaters that should have known better, such as the Quannapowitt Players (Tomfoolery, Robert in Stage Struck, Gerald in Woman in Mind, Sir Andrew in Twelfth Night, William in How the Other Half Loves, Senex in A Funny Thing ... Forum), Arlington Friends of the Drama (Eddie Carbone in A View From the Bridge, Jethro Crouch in Sly Fox, Dindon in La Cage Aux Folles, Mike Talman in Wait Until Dark), Burlington Players (Martin in Social Security, Ken in Rumors), Winchester Players (Torvald Helmer in A Doll's House, Benoit Pinglet in A Little Hotel on the Side), Wheelock Family Theatre, Playwrights' Platform., and the Concord Players (Jack in Broadway Bound).

Inexplicably, he also has been allowed to direct such shows as Lend Me a Tenor, The Importance of Being Earnest, Communicating Doors, and (forthcoming) Arsenic and Old Lace (QP); Don't Dress for Dinner (AFD); And Miss Reardon Drinks a Little (BP); Do Not Walk Around in the Nude! (Boulevard Theatre Company); and Rumors (Concord Players). He appreciates being allowed to return to Concord to direct Side Man, and promises to closely monitor the use of the "non-tobacco" cigarettes.
