A Day in the Life: Gabe Jacobs-Kierstein
Jul 31, 2009
Theater seems so … well … dramatic. But it’s not all bright lights and adoring audiences. What you see on stage is the culmination of a lot of hard work behind the scenes before anyone takes a seat. Before the actors even step on stage, there’s plenty of pre-performance preparation from make-up and cast meetings to line rehearsing and psyching themselves up in a host of unique ways.
Flagler Magazine sent photographer Zach Thomas, ‘00, to capture actor, master electrician and senior theatre major Gabe Jacobs-Kierstein as he readied to play a role in the Theatre Department’s spring 2009 production of “The Good Person Of Sezuan,” a comedic-morality play inspired by Chinese folk tales.
