SAG-AFTRA Foundation and BroadwayWorld have partnered for a filmed Conversations Q&A series to recognize and celebrate the vibrant theatre community in New York City and the actors who aspire to have a career on the stage and screen.
On Thursday, April 26 (1pm) join us at the Robin Williams Center (247 West 54th Street) for a Career Conversations Q&A with Joshua Jackson (The Affair, Dawson’s Creek), current star of Children of a Lesser God, moderated by BroadwayWorld’s Richard Ridge of “Backstage with Richard Ridge!”
Joshua Jackson makes his Broadway debut in Children of a Lesser God alongside Lauren Ridloff, telling the story of an unconventional teacher at a school for the deaf and remarkable woman he meets there. Jackson’s additional stage credits include a successful run on London’s West End starring in A Life in the Theatre alongside Patrick Stewart. The acclaimed comedy was written by the Pulitzer Prize and Olivier Award winning, and Oscar nominated David Mamet. He also starred in the off-Broadway play Smart People at New York’s Second Stage Theatre, about four Harvard intellectuals finding themselves entangled in a complex web of social politics. Jackson currently stars alongside Dominic West, Ruth Wilson, and Maura Tierney in the Golden Globe award-winning television series The Affair on Showtime, which will return for its fourth season this June. Jackson was recently seen in the National Geographic Channel’s Emmy award winning documentary series Years of Living Dangerously. He previously starred on FOX’s hit show Fringe created by J.J. Abrams and made a cameo appearance in the Netflix Original Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Well known as Dawson’s Creek’s fast-talking, self-deprecating Pacey Witter, Jackson has been working in front of the camera for over twenty years.
