The actor and playwright Jacob Sampson drops by the studio this week ahead of opening night for Shakespeare By The Sea's mainstage show of the season, A Midsummer Night's Dream. It's his first time on stage—in this case the grounds of Point Pleasant Park—in over two years! He chats about easing back into the rehearsal hall, this season's motto—choose kindness—and the journey of the award-winning play he wrote for himself, Chasing Champions, a little-known story about the Nova Scotian boxer Sam Langford. Plus: a sweet song from the new Dusted album.
