My Story

Jacob Michael is a NYC-based nonbinary actor/artist, specializing in musical theater with a focus in new, very queer work. Xe lives in Brooklyn with xir muse, Mabel the cat. Xe grew up in New Jersey, where xe took dance classes from a very young age. Xe began pursuing theater in high school--in 2014, xe received the Paper Mill Playhouse Rising Star Award for Best Supporting Actor for xir portrayal of Frau Blucher in Young Frankenstein. Xe is aware this award doesn't hold much weight in xir older age, but xe still thinks it's neat. Xe studied at the Paper Mill Playhouse Summer Intensive Conservatory for acting, singing, dance, and improv. Jacob has been seen in both regional and NYC productions, most notably as Max in Hir at Island City Stage (dir. Andy Rogow), Milo in workshops for Q2 by James Lecesne and Ryan Amador at New York Stage & Film's Powerhouse In Residence (dir. James Lecesne), and for originating the roles of Jackson in workshops for Wonder Boy: A New Musical ​by Jacob Jarrett at The Dare Tactic (dir. Nina Roy) and Tony in both in workshops for and the Off-Broadway premier of #Adulting at St. Luke's Theatre (dir. Mika Kauffman). Jacob has also performed at various NYC venues, including Joe's Pub, The Duplex, and Lincoln Center. Xe can be seen in the crowd on S4E14 of Madam Secretary​ if you look hard enough.
