JakE B. Rydell

Actor

Jake B. Rydell is a Detroit-based actor, writer, and musician born and raised in the Detroit metro area currently studying at Wayne State University in pursuit of a BFA in Acting and a BA in Political Science. His work has been seen in a variety of mediums and spaces throughout the Midwest, most recently including appearances at the Ringwald, the Jewish Ensemble Theatre, and a number of spaces on tour down through Kentucky. Remaining in Detroit as an actor has been instrumental in his growth as an artist given the densely-woven, complex fabric that is the local theatre community. Since his first experience with Slipstream (The Seagull), Jake has been captivated by Slipstream’s inventive, minimalist work and is enthralled to be a part of Slipstream Theatre Initiative.
