Carousel in concert, a new bar, and a new me!





You can have fun with a son, but you gotta be a father to a girl.
- Billy Bigelow



Click the poster above for tickets to SGVCC's spring concert! 

If you're not familiar with "Soliloquy," sung by Billy Bigelow at the end of Act 1 of Carousel, it's one of the great baritone solos of the 20th Century.  Bigelow is a carny, living hand-to-mouth as an entertainer until his wife gets pregnant.  "Soliloquy" is the process of him realizing he's about to be responsible for a baby.

So... it means a lot to me :), and I'm grateful to get to perform it in public for the first time at this event!  I hope you can make it.

Ps... We're raffling off two Disney passes at the concert, a $270 value could be yours for as little as $5!  To enter without attending, e-mail choralcompany@gmail.com.

Below, enjoy video of the solo I sang for them in December, supported by our awesome alto section leader Diana Woolner.

Above you can watch a bit of my guest appearance in Tony Foster's juggernaut Come Back in Serial Killers at Sacred Fools.  It was great fun to jump back into some sketch comedy for a night!

Next week I start a school tour with Laguna Playhouse, playing Stuart Little!  Finally something my 5-year-old can see!  No public performances, but look forward to pictures of my enormous ears, coming soon!

Of Mice and Men, final week!





Ain't gonna be no trouble, no fights.
Nobody ever gonna hurt nobody, or steal from 'em.
It's gonna be nice.

- George, III-2

George Milton won't never leave me on the inside, though Of Mice and Men at North Coast Rep has just 5 more performances.  I'm so grateful to Artistic Director David Ellenstein, Director Richard Baird, my scene partner Nicholas Mongiardo-Cooper, and the cast, crew, volunteers, patrons, and critics for their support.
Get Your Tickets Now!

Sidney captures every bit of George's toughness as well as his almost fatherly regard for his longtime traveling companion - San Diego Union Tribute

Jacob Sidney and Nicholas Mongiardo-Cooper deliver very potent performances - Desert Local News

Sidney gives a compassionate and caring performance as Lennie's caregiver, firm when he needs to be - Jenni Prisk

The dark tale focuses on two characters, the magnificently portrayed George (Jacob Sidney) and Lennie (Nicholas Mongiardo-Cooper) - La Jolla Light

Jacob Sidney... shows both the "hard core" side of George in dealing with Lennie and the sensitive side when needed - The Vista Press

This George is nimble, physically and verbally, even waxing poetic at times - The Times of San Diego

Sidney and Mongiardo-Cooper bring a timeless brotherly relationship to life. Their interactions with each other can change from humorously tense to poignant in an instant - San Diego Story

Sidney and especially Mongiardo-Cooper are outstanding - San Diego CityBeat

Sidney and Mongiardo-Cooper are excellent as George and Lennie - San Diego Gay and Lesbian News



The great reviews keep coming!
