"...steals the show... with an authentic and consistent inner life, his strong, rich voice and lanky grace make him perfect for this demanding role."
Review of What About Luv? at Impulse Theatre and Dance
Rebecca Daniels, Woodstock Times
Raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and educated at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, NY, Jonah Scott Mendelsohn is an actor, singer, and writer based in New York City.
His stage work spans new plays in New York City, and lead roles in regional theaters. Favorite roles include Pete (a pregnant man) in Tumor by Sheila Callghan, Paul in Company by Sondheim and Furth, and the killers in Shakespeare's Richard II (Mowbray, Exton, and the Welsh Captain).
His writing includes a variety of poetry, and two pieces for the stage: Jonah - a choreopoem, based on the biblical story, first presented at West End Synagogue; and A Mostly Perfect Education: Things They Don't Talk about at Commencement, a one-man show about his experiences as a Women's Study minor at Vassar College, which began development in Martin Moran's personal narrative workshop at the Barrow Group.
Jonah is currently raising funds for a full production of Love Alone: Elegies for Rog, a play for World AIDS Day, adapted from the poetry of Paul Monette. For more information, or to donate, please visit the production website. Love Alone: Elegies for Rog
