Jared will be featured in the world premiere musical of DAVE at Arena Stage in Washington, DC this summer July 13-Aug. 19. Click the pic above for more information...
Arena Stage: Washington, DC. July 13-Aug. 19. The show is written by the late great Tom Meehan (The Producers, Hairspray, Annie), Tom Kitt (Next to Normal, Spongebob, Bring it on) Nell Benjamin (Mean Girls, Legally Blonde) and Directed by Tina Landau (Floyd Collins, Spongebob Squarepants) Arena Stage is where Dear Evan Hansen and Next to Normal had their Pre-Broadway tryouts.
Jared is thrilled to be back in Georgia this fall. He will return to the old red hills of home (Marietta, GA) and play Leo Frank in Jason Robert Brown's Tony Award winning PARADE. The musical will be performed at the Lyric Theatre's studio theatre just off the Marietta town Square. This controversial and goregous musical is essentially a murder mystery based on a true story. In 1913, the Atlanta Pencil Factory superintendant was suspected and convicted of murdering a 13 year old girl in the basement of the factory on Confederate Memorial Day. Factory sweeper, Jim Connely said he wrote the murder notes and carried the body, but that Leo Frank did it. He maintained his innocence. His sentence: to hang by the neck, was commuted to life in prison by the Governor of Atlanta, after suspicions of an unfair trial. He was taken to the state prison in Millidgeville, for safety, but was taken from that jail with no resistance in the middle of the night, driven 150 miles to Marietta, one block from the current day "Big Chicken" and lynched. The state of Georgia arrested no one for the jail break and lynching. Many considered it carrying out the original sentence. The state of Georgia in 1986 Pardoned Leo Frank, not saying he was guilty or innocent, but in apology for never bringing anyone to justice for the jailbreak and lynching.
