He knew from the tender age of five that he was going to be an entertainer and when the opportunity presented itself for Jason Cohen to play Jerry Lee Lewis in the national tour of the Million Dollar Quartet, his life was changed forever.
His co-creation of the spin-off Great Balls of Fire has landed him on the Suncoast for an 11-week run at Florida Studio Theatre, and now you get to hear the story of his path to Broadway, his love of Sarasota patrons, the importance of close-toed shoes in New York City, and just exactly what he would say to Jerry Lee Lewis if he had five minutes with him.
All that and more on this week's episode of the Suncoast Culture Club podcast.
