JACK IN A BOX Episode 2: THE ALPHA ACTOR
After a long morning of selling tickets, JACK (Michael Cyril Creighton) sneaks out of his box for his daily cigarette and cupcake break, only to run into an acquaintance from his past: Simon, AKA THE ALPHA ACTOR (played by PATRICK HEUSINGER of TV's Gossip Girl Broadway's Spamalot, Off-Broadway's Next Fall)
Simon is everything Jack is not...conventionally handsome, full of maniacal exuberance and joy for the "art of acting"-and most importantly-very very successful.
Watch Jack try to navigate this awkward meeting...but first, let him lick the icing off his lips.
(Make sure to watch a special POST CREDIT surprise at the end)

A once mild mannered young man with a BFA in Acting and no life skills. He takes a job at an off-off Broadway Box Office because it doesn't involve wearing a blazer or using Excel. A few years and thousands of customers later, watch Jack try to manage his anger. But like all caged animals, he is going to throw his own sh*t at you sooner or later. Service with a smirk, that's all you can ask for.
