Jeffrey Vause made his "official" stage debut in the St. Louis High School production of Tom Stoppard's ROSENCRANTZ & GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD as Alfred the "youngest tragedian": it was the first time he appeared in drag on stage and it wouldn't be the last. Years later, he won raves as Arnold Beckoff, the broken-hearted drag performer in the 15th Anniversary Off-Off Broadway revival of Harvey Fierstein's Tony-winning TORCH SONG TRILOGY in Greenwich Village , at the Grove St. Playhouse. Born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii (like Bette Midler and Don Ho before him), Jeffrey performed in numerous productions there at the Diamond Head Theatre, the Manoa Valley Theatre, and with the short-lived American Theatre Co.-Hawaii: highlighted roles include Barnaby in HELLO, DOLLY! (DHT); Sohovik in DAMN YANKEES (MVT); Greg in A CHORUS LINE (ATCO-HI.), with the original Bennett choreography; Bud Frump in HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING (MVT); A-Rab in WEST SIDE STORY (MVT); Alphonse in the BOY FRIEND (MVT); Sylester in GOOD NEWS (DHT); Duane in HARVEY (DHT); and David (Arnold's son) in the Hawaii premiere of TORCH SONG TRILOGY (MVT). While living in Honolulu, he worked behind the scenes as well, Assistant Directing an acclaimed production of Larry Kramer's the NORMAL HEART for MVT, which starred future Tony-winning actor, Denis O'Hare, as well as Stage Managing MVT's production of the musical WORKING. Regionally, Jeffrey's appeared in the Rockwell Theater in Milton, Pennsylvania production of A CHORUS LINE; New York credits have included Monty in the B.T. McNicholl-Paul McKibbon musical the IT GIRL at Broadhollow Theatre in Bethpage, N.Y.; OKLAHOMA! (Ali Hakim) directed by Dominic Cuskern at the Gallery Players in Brooklyn; TAKE IT EASY (Ensemble/Swing), an original 1940's musical which played the Judith Anderson in N.Y.; and Wendell in Eric Winick's WHISKEY DOWN at the Mazer Theatre in N.Y. He is proud to have created the following roles in their initial NYC productions: Irving Berlin in IRVING BERLIN RAGTIME REVUE at Theater for the New City ; Gideon in SOMEBODY I LOVE at Wings; and Peter in the original cast workshop of JUST US BOYS at Theatreworks Studios in Chelsea . Film credits? If you look hard enough, you might spot him running for a train at Grand Central aside Ricki Lake in MRS. WINTERBOURNE. He is slated to appear as Kimo in the 2007 independent film THREE TO FIVE AND GLASSY (LITTLE BROWN GAL). ALOHA OY! is a revised version of a series of monologues originally entitled WORKING MY NERVES performed at staged readings in 1999 and 2001.
