About The Event
3 courses from our a la carte menu and 40 minutes live set
As one who famously shuns the spotlight and attention, Jay is appearing at Claire's Kitchen Pop Up Petit to take a break from the quiet solitude of being one of Sydney's most acclaimed and humble actor/director/writer/producers. From the dizzying highs of being the lead in a Broadway musical (at certain performances), to the crushing lows of not being able to give away comps to his own shows, Jay will take you on a song-laden journey through his accidental career and answer some of his unenthused fans' most pressing questions, including 'What's your name again?' and 'How did you possibly make a career in musicals with no acumen for music?'. Expect the expected.
Jay James-Moody is an award-winning actor, director, writer, and producer; Artistic Director of acclaimed boutique company Squabbalogic; was a co-founder of Hayes Theatre Co; and made his professional debut singing some of the most heinous words and phrases in the english language in Jerry Springer The Opera at the Sydney Opera HouseHe mostly sat backstage for 14 months in the Australian premiere of The Book of Mormon, won a Sydney Theatre Award for Best Actor in a Musical for The Drowsy Chaperone (in which he did not sing or dance), won no awards for playing all 12 roles in the 90 minute one-man musical Herringbone, and had four unforgettable lines in Opera Australia's Handa Opera on the Harbour production of West Side Story.
