FEATURING

 

 

TOUCHSTONE:

Jonathan is thrilled to be joining the Inwood Shakespeare Festival for its 2012 season! Jonathan’s acting career started when mom used to make him eat radicchio and he would pretend to throw it up at the dinner table, much to the amusement of anyone within earshot. New to the NYC scene, he still feels that radicchio tastes like feet.
