Jason Raize - early
JASON RAIZE (Pontius Pilate), has most recently performed the roles of the Phantom in Yeston-Kopit's Phantom!, Lun-Tha in The King & I, Tulsa in Gypsy, and Chino in West Side Story, with Sammy Dallas Bayes. Jason's career began with Shakespeare, portraying such roles as Orlando in As You Like It and Feste in Twelfth Night, with Nancy Fales-Garrett.
