Miles Jacoby hails from Wellesley, MA, a suburb right outside of Boston. With a high school English teacher for a mother and a research scientist for a father, Miles grew up with a curiosity for everything. Therefore, after stumbling into a dance studio in 1st grade, he was immediately drawn to the excitement of the stage. He found his calling in the theater, and continued to study acting, singing and dance as he grew older.
After high school, Miles went off to Yale University where he majored in Theatre Studies, and served two years on the executive board of the Yale Dramatic Association as Special Events Coordinator and Vice President. When not studying in a library, Miles performed in over 20 productions and workshops during his four years, including five mainstages. He also continued to dance with Yale's premiere Hip-Hop and contemporary dance group, Rhythmic Blue.
After graduating and spending a summer at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, Miles moved to New York City. In only a few months, he performed in the New Orleans Fringe Festival, and joined the non-equity acting company at The Flea Theater, called The Bats. This company became an artistic home where he took part in many readings and performed in the New York premiere of These Seven Sicknesses by Sean Graney.
And then, a few weeks shy of his one year anniversary in New York, Miles was fortunate enough to sign with Craig Holzberg at Avalon Artists Group and soon after be cast as Bob Gaudio in the first national Tour of Jersey Boys. He toured the country for a year, stopping in such cities as Edmonton, Vancouver, and Saskatoon, in Canada; and then Spokane, Madison, Cincinnati, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston, and San Francisco here in the US. He now returns to NYC as a proud AEA member, excited to see what could be in store next.
