Carla Gugino and Peter Grosz star in the LCT3 production of Daniel Pearle's Laurents/Hatcher Award-winning play A Kid Like Jake, which premiered June 2 at the Claire Tow Theater.
The cast also features Caroline Aaron (The Sisters Rosensweig, The Iceman Cometh) and Michelle Beck (Much Ado About Nothing, The Tempest).
According to LCT3, A Kid Like Jake is "the story of a husband and wife trying to do right by their son. Alex (Gugino) and her husband, Greg (Grosz), want only the best for their precocious four year old, Jake. When they apply to New York City private schools, part of what makes Jake special – his passion for Cinderella and dress-up – starts to cause concern."
When her father dies unexpectedly, graphic novelist Alison dives deep into her past to tell the story of the volatile, brilliant, one-of-a-kind man whose temperament and secrets defined her family and her life.
