Private School Lessons Offered in A Kid Like Jake

Email a Friend

The task of getting your child into the best possible preschool is a gauntlet run by a particular stratum of Manhattan parent. Daniel Pearle’s new play A Kid Like Jake, examines that famously difficult process with a dramatic twist or two. Directed by Evan Cabnet and starring Carla Gugino and Peter Grosz as Jake’s parents (the child is unseen in the play), A Kid Like Jake closes the season at Lincoln Center Theater’s LCT3 program, which is dedicated to developing both new artists and new audiences for New York theater. 

New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood lets us know a little more about Jake’s parents, the actors who play them, and the lessons offered to the audiences who see the show, which runs through July 14 at the Clair Tow Theater at Lincoln Center.
