ACT­ING OUT Youth gen­der is­sues ex­plored in ‘A Kid Like Jake’

GA Voice - - Outspoken -

Mak­ing its South­east pre­miere at At­lanta’s new Out Front Theatre Com­pany – ded­i­cated to telling sto­ries of the LGBT ex­pe­ri­ence and com­mu­nity – is Daniel Pearle’s “A Kid Like Jake.” It’s a drama about two par­ents – Alex and Greg – who, as they get ready to pre­pare their 4-year-old son for an ex­clu­sive pri­vate school, re­al­ize the boy would rather play with dolls than tra­di­tional toys. How the two de­cide to move for­ward drives the show. Ge­or­gia Voice caught up with direc­tor Paul Con­roy and lead per­form­ers Justin Dil­ley and Lau­ren Me­gan McCarthy to talk about “Jake.”

How did you get in­volved, Lau­ren?
