About A Kid Like Jake

On the eve of the admissions cycle for New York City kindergartens, Alex and Greg have high hopes for their son Jake, a precocious four-year-old who happens to prefer Cinderella to G.I. Joe. But as the process continues, Jake’s behavior becomes erratic and perplexing, and other adults in his life start to wonder whether his fondness for dress-up might be cause for concern.

IAMA Theatre Company brings this story of a husband and wife struggling to do right by their son to Pasadena Playhouse.

The best play on any L.A. stage right now, Daniel Pearle's 2013 A Kid Like Jake couldn't be more relevant.
Stage and Cinema
Sharon Lawrence stands out in this four performer show... when she reveals to Alex and Greg that their son is comfortable with gender-expansive play, her subtle facial expressions and movements throughout this and other scenes are riveting to watch.
Onstage Blog
As the play surges toward the climactic scenes, the audience is rapt in pin-drop attention. A dénouement of magic realism brings the show gently to a close. A Kid Like Jake is drama as good as it gets.
