  • SYNOPSIS

    Jefferson Mays recently completed his one-man rendition of A Christmas Carol at the Geffen Playhouse for which he received rave reviews. He was nominated for a 2017 Tony Award for originating the role of Terje Rød-Larsen in the Tony Award-winning play Oslo. Mays was also Tony-nominated for his multi-character performance in the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, as well as his Tony Award-winning performance in I Am My Own Wife, where he played over 40 different roles. He also recently starred as George Hodel in the TNT miniseries I Am the Night, directed by Patty Jenkins, and recently had a featured role in the Coen Brothers anthology series The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Jefferson’s television credits include recurring arcs on FX’s The Americans; Cinemax’s The Knick, directed by Steven Soderbergh; NBC’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit; as well as a guest role in the Netflix hit Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.   "A tour-de-force performance by Jefferson Mays. He is astonishing in Michael Arden’s riveting production. They make what was already a classic story feel new, while also making it feel as if it should matter forever" The New York Times Jesse Green
