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 Gerry Goffin (Carole King’s husband) 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. Through a series of entertaining and soul-baring stories and songs, ranging from touring the US, to surviving Spider-Man, to withstanding steroid shots and Broadway boos, 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 must-see for anyone who’s ever tried to go after their dreams.
Written and Performed by Jake Epstein
Developed with and Directed by Robert McQueen
January 4, 22 - Due to the Ontario’s new Covid closures, Jake Epstein’s exuberant and bittersweet musical love letter to show business, Boy Falls From the Sky, has been rescheduled from its original January 2022 run at the CAA Theatre to April/May 2022 at the same venue.
The show Epstein has crafted with director Robert McQueen is pitch-perfect. Epstein carries the solo show with a casual ease, as if he were regaling a group of friends over beers at a bar. He is affable, down-to-earth, and his narrative is sprinkled with gentle self-deprecating humour. On opening night he had the full-house audience leaning in and listening in rapt attention… He just comes across as so utterly likeable and I couldn’t help but be completely won over by his charm.- Mooney on Theatre
This is excellent musical theatre storytelling by a performer with natural star power.
Jake Epstein's Boy Falls from The Sky is from the first moment engaging and fun, his presence electric and yet relaxed, his timing perfection and the laughs strongly rooted in self-deprecating honesty. I loved this show.- THE WHOLE NOTE
Cabaret of the highest calibre. - NOW Magazine
