Zach is cover of February art issue of Snap magazine, in which he talks about his love for stage work, and of course, The Glass Menagerie.
Most everyone knows you are a movie and television star, but you have a very accomplished theater career as well. Can you tell us a bit about why you love theater so much?
The theater is where it all began for me. I have studied and performed on stage since I was 10 years old, and earned a BFA in acting from Carnegie Mellon School of Drama. My decision to move to LA after graduation was always intended as a means to an end. My goal was to build myself a film and television career that would allow me to diversify and focus on other aspects of storytelling also. Coming back to the theater is mostly about making good on a promise to myself. I’ve worked hard in Los Angeles to get myself to a point where I can leave and embrace other experiences. I finally feel that I am at that point so, I feel I must take the leap in continued pursuit of creative integrity and authenticity.
Zach co-chaired last night in Boston the 3rd Annual Valentine’s Day Gala, and I have a few pictures added:
Jones earned Tony Awards for The Heiress and Doubt. The cast also featurez Zachary Quinto (Angels in America, “American Horror Story”) as narrator son Tom, Celia Keenan-Bolger (Peter and the Starcatcher, Spelling Bee) as sister Laura and Brian J. Smith (The Columnist, Come Back Little Sheba) as the Gentleman Caller.
According to A.R.T., “The Glass Menagerie is Tennessee Williams’ poetic masterpiece, anchored by the aging southern belle Amanda Wingfield, who hopes for her son Tom to fulfill her dreams of finding the perfect ‘gentleman caller’ for her shy and damaged daughter Laura.”
I have added over 500 HQ screencaptures of ‘Dog Eat Dog’, also finally the latest episode of ‘American Horror Story’ to the gallery. Check it:
