A Little About Me
- About Me
- I'm an an actor, writer, and teacher. I went to the University of Pennsylvania and played Varsity Baseball before discovering my passion for acting. During my sophomore year I studied abroad at the British American Drama Academy in London, saw plays virtually every night, and fell in love with the art of storytelling. After receiving my BA in Theatre Arts I went on to get my MFA in Acting at UCLA. On stage, I most recently performed in EVERYBODY LOVES OPAL at the Montgomery Theater just outside of Philadelphia. This coming spring you can find me at the Philadelphia Shakespeare Theater where I'll be playing Laertes in HAMLET and Orlando in AS YOU LIKE IT. Additionally, I am a teacher of acting, voice and speech, and theater appreciation. I have taught at several regional theaters and universities such as: The Arden Theater, UCLA, Albright College, and Los Angeles Southwest College.

OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT BY A LEAD ACTOR IN A DRAMA
- Stage Scene LA (Best of 2007-2008)
"Greenfield the actor does outstanding work as Michael in a performance that is agonizingly real, and electric in its spontaneity."
"Greenfield’s script is compelling and original…it is a highly promising piece of writing which affords its excellent cast a quintet of complex roles performed with believability and power.”
Greenfield is “a promising writer.” - LA Weekly
"The Lysander and Demetrius of Jason Greenfield and Christopher W. Jones deftly align, resist and reconnoiter with Samara Frame's petulant Hermia and Willow Geer's rangy Helena -- a delicious comic quartet." - LA Times
"The romantic jousting among petite and perky Hermia (Samara Frame), her lovesick friend Helena (Willow Geer), and their suitors Demetrius (Chris Jones) and Lysander (Jason Greenfield), are played out in healthy bouts of hormonal urges and callow insecurities." - Variety
