"The show we needed it to be. It’s Tang for the Trump era. It’s a campfire in the wilderness.... Wilderness is a quiet delight. Grzelak is a gifted and charming storyteller. He renders exquisite and memorable details." Cincinnati CityBeat
Jimmy Grzelak is a Philadelphia-based theater and performance artist.
Before settling in Philly, Jimmy toured two full-length solo pieces across North America; he also travelled Eurasia by train with the support of a Florence Chandler fellowship.
“Wunderkind of weird... a force of nature,
a kind of cynical Peter Pan...
the eerie spirit child of
Brian Wilson and Yma Sumac.”
Washington City Paper
“Sharp and hilarious...
His sincerity matches his wit.
DC Metro Theater Arts
“Deeply personal and urgently-felt.”
The Daily City
“Smart, nimble-footed humor... keep an eye on him - it will certainly be
worth following him down the next trail.”
DC Theatre Scene
“Grzelak told me it was his first performance in Pittsburgh. Let's hope for more.”
