J. Max Baker
Charming. Genial. Honest. Authentic
J.Max is an AEA member based out of New York City. He is widely known for his ability to play multiple characters within a single production (One Christmas Carol, Stones in his Pockets, Billy Bishop Goes to War). He is often the likable guy next door - equal parts a young Tom Hanks and Brian D'Arcy James. Although classicaly trained, J. Max is a Tenor who is applauded for his rock belt (he is often compared to Journey's Steve Perry). Boyishly charming with a knack for comedy, but with an equally strong ability to carry the depth of more dramatic work.
"Baker's performance was honestly among some of the best stage work I have ever seen. Portraying well over a dozen characters with lightening-fast physical and vocal changes, Baker pulls all the stops, shifts into high speed and takes the audience with him for the ride."
- Thomas Raniszewski, East Lynne Theater Company, Cape May, NJ
