Jacob MacInnis ft. In The Wings - Gender Visibility Matters!

Jacob MacInnis has a silky voice that makes us swoon, a kindness that swells our hearts and a podunk edge essential for a good time! Joining Jacob in this episode is none other than Steve Cota from In The Wings, who is featured in our new segment, ‘Whatcha Doin?!’Jacob is a Dora award winning actor and prolific artist, who expresses themselves through all mediums of art! We talk with Jacob about their visual art and their musical aspirations and inspirations. We chat about gender identity, pronouns, and discuss ways that allies can best support the gender queer community. Steve Cota is a seasoned performer and choreographer who created In The Wings during the pandemic lockdown as an online musical theatre training tool. Steve’s overall purpose of In The Wings is to educate youth and established artists and bring them together in class so that we may learn from each other and collectively grow as a community.  Jacob has played some of the most iconic and recognizable characters with amazing accuracy, passion, and success. Some of their credits to date include; Cowardly Lion in Wizard of Oz (Capitol Theatre), Lefou in Beauty and The Beast, Horton in Seussical, Earthworm in James and The Giant Peach (YPT) Chef Louis in The Little Mermaid (Globe Theatre) Uncle Fester in The Addams Family (Neptune Theatre) two seasons with The Charlottetown Festival including Peter in Jesus Christ Superstar. Coming up Jacob will star as Frank-N-Furter in The Rocky Horror Show (Neptune Theatre) and will be featured in Play On!, one of the cabarets being presented at the Stratford Festival this 2021 season. Come hang with us, grab a drink (if you’re not driving), and get your weekly fix of musical theatre banter, with beverages.
