I met Jonathan Mitzenmacher when he played Frederick in the Miami Acting Company’s 2015 production of “The Pirates of Penzance.” It also happened that at the time New Theatre was casting roles for the first reading of “All Together Now,” and he created the role of Fox. He lived up to way beyond our expectations, and when we did it for the South Florida Theatre League’s Summer Theatre Fest two weeks ago, he did the role again. Next week he heads off to his freshman year at the University of Florida in Gainesville, where he’s planning to major in mechanical engineering.
This summer he participated in the Songbook Academy program in Carmel, Indiana, where this was recorded. See for yourself what his friends and admirers already know: the kid has talent.
