Compelling "A Kid Like Jake" Ushers in 2017 at Weathervane

Tuesday, January 3, 2017 1:53:00 PM

On the eve of the admissions cycle for Manhattan's most exclusive private schools, Alex and Greg have high hopes for their son Jake, a precocious four-year-old who happens to prefer Cinderella to G.I. Joe.

As the process continues, however, 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.

Daniel Pearle's compelling drama poses a challenging question: What do you do, when all you want to do is what is right for your child?

A Kid Like Jake is a story of a husband and wife struggling to do right by their son. The production, directed by Bob Belfance, is sponsored in part by the Gay Community Endowment Fund in partnership with GLSEN.
