Jamal James

JAMAL JAMES is thrilled to be back at APT in such a frustrating yet liberating time. He is an actor, writer, improvisor and model based in NYC. Hailing from Centreville, VA, Jamal graduated with a B.F.A. from Emory & Henry College and has been working in NYC and around the country ever since. A proud member of AEA and SAG-AFTRA, he spends most of his time letting out his inner kid...and forcing everyone around him to do the same. You may remember him from She Stoops to Conquer, Macbeth or Fences in his first season here. From his lead performance in the Royale BWW and other reviews labeled him "brilliant", "a towering force onstage", "charming as he is awe-inspiring", and "the right man in the right place." You may have also seen him on City On A Hill (Showtime), Gotham (Fox) and the most recent national tour of The Color Purple. Favorite works include The Royale, She Stoops To Conquer, Fences, Welcome To Fear City, Jericho, Shakespeare in Love, Guess Who's Coming To Dinner?, Illa: A Hip-Hop Musical, Minor Character, Jedi Training, Peter and the Starcatcher, The Last Five Years, Violet:The Musical and Beauty and the Beast. All thanks to God, His family, Alys (the bestie, the favorite, the feeling!), his friends, this cast and crew and all who journey to this place. Always keep hope alive! thejamaljames.com
