Event Notes


Written and performed by Jake Epstein
Developed with and directed by Robert McQueen

Jake Epstein’s been “that guy from Degrassi”, starred in the US National Tours of Spring Awakening and American Idiot, played Spider-Man on Broadway and originated the lead role of Carole King’s husband - Gerry Goffin in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Not bad for a kid who dreamed about performing on Broadway in the back seat of his parents’ minivan on their annual family road trip to NYC. But the thing about dreams is, they don’t always go as planned. Epstein shares the rejection, stage fright and heartbreak behind a seemingly successful career in this showbiz tell-all. Boy Falls From The Sky is a story for anyone who’s ever tried to go after their dreams.
