MUSIC AND SOUND FOR LIVE THEATER
Jesse got his start at The Second City, where he revolutionized the way music was composed and sound was designed as the resident musical director of five Jeff Award-winning original revues. Additionally he has worked with the famed comedy theater on collaborations all around the world, most notably two blockbuster shows with Lyric Opera of Chicago. He works regularly for theaters all over Chicago.
“Musical directors at Second City have traditionally been supporting players... but Case doesn't tinkle quietly at the piano in the time-honored tradition. He turns himself into a major character in a revue that's their most layered, textured and thoroughly exciting show in years.” - Chris Jones, The Chicago Tribune
“Jesse Case triples as musical director, composer and sound designer, and this show offers the most complex use to date at The Second City of music, sound and sampling.”- The Windy City Times
"Jesse Case’s score deserves special praise. This is one of the best examples of world-building I’ve seen onstage in quite some time, and when building a world onstage it’s details like these that count."- TimeOut Chicago
