The New Jewish Theatre

May 3-20

njt_jacob_and_jack_graphicA door slamming back stage farce, Jacob and Jack brings together the worlds of contemporary and Yiddish theatre. Jack Shore, a well-known television personality, is appearing for one night only in a tribute to his grandfather, Jacob Shemerinsky, great star of the Yiddish Theater. Backstage in his dressing room, Jack confronts his challenges as an actor - and as a husband to his co-starring wife. Simultaneously, 75 years in the past, Jacob has problems of his own. Actors play their past and present roles in a dizzying display in this time-traveling farce that is a smart and classic marital farce ingeniously complicated by historical layering and dual role-playing. From its Yiddish roots to its long obsession with Hollywood, it is a beguiling comic love letter to the American theater, and a clever tribute to Yiddish Theatre and to vain glorious stage actors.

Professional Theatre Council of St. Louis


Patton Chiles began her career in theater playing The Young Nun in a Missouri Repertory Theater production of Morning Star, a role for which she thankfully would no longer be considered. She moved to St. Louis and was immediately cast at the Theatre Project Company, a company that turned out a generation of wonderful theatre artists, many of whom are still working in St. Louis. Patton worked as an actress for many St. Louis companies, including the dearly departed TNT and the St. Louis Repertory Company.   While working at the Muny Student Theatre Company, Patton became an accidental playwright. (They asked her what she thought would be an interesting play for children. She told them, and they asked her to write it.) 

In 1991 she became Co-Artistic Director of a radio theatre company known as Holy Roman Repertory Theatre Company. The company was not Roman, Holy or a Repertory. It was a company that used theater to tell historical stories using only verbatim quotes for dialogue, surrounding that dialogue with the music from the time period. Patton and her Co-Artistic Director, Larry Roberson, transitioned the company from a radio company to an Equity theatre company, changing the name to Historyonics Theatre Company. 

Having written well over fifty plays, in 2005 Patton began to work more with Cecilia Nadal’s company, Gitana Productions, whose mission is “Global healing through the Arts.” Patton is Adjunct Faculty at Washington University and St. Louis University, where she teaches Acting One, Public Speaking, Script Analysis, and Approaching the Arts. Students from both St. Louis University and Washington University have been involved with Gitana’s theatre productions.

10 Questions: 

1.  What is your favorite theatrical memory?

As an actor or a director? There really are way too many favorite memories for me to have an actual favorite "favorite memory". My most memorable moment as an actor was when I first walked out on stage as Sister Mary in SISTER MARY IGNATIUS EXPLAINS IT ALL FOR YOU. The Archbishop at the time forbade St. Louis Catholics to see the show, so of course it was sold out!

2.  When did you know you were going in to the theatre?

It was the first time I got a laugh on stage - I think my sophomore year in high school.

3.  What does St. Louis Theatre mean to you?

The first thing that came into my head when reading this question was "Life's blood". I have lived in St. Louis longer than I have lived anywhere else - though I did not go to high school here. Amazingly and gratefully, I've made a living and raised two children working in St. Louis theatre. How lucky is that?

4.  What’s in your fridge right now?

Soy milk. Soy sauce - Wheat Free. Tofu. Apples. Eggs. Bananas are on top of the fridge. Makes you want to come right over for dinner doesn't it?

5.  What was the first car you drove?

A little powder blue Chevrolet something. A Covair I think?

6.  What’s the last book you read?

Half the Sky by Nicholas Kristoff - should be required life reading.

7.  What’s your favorite St. Louis restaurant?

Easy - Mai Lee.

8.  If you weren’t in the theatre, what would you be doing?

I would be doing whatever the universe assigned me to do - it would involve people and storytelling somehow.

9.  What is the most played song or artist on your iPod?

NPR. Talk radio all day every day, much to my children's irritation.  I don't even have an iPod.

10.  What is your guiltiest guilty pleasure?

I have no idea. I suppose I'll have to create one now.
