Jack Ruocco, who will be playing Spence (Andrew Hale Spencer Smith) in the upcoming performances of ArLynn Leiber Presser’s Remembrance, got into acting because it stirs the greatest passion in him of all the endeavors he’s tried in his life. His favorite role to date — the UPS guy in Legally Blond: The Musical!
If Jack could pick his dream role, it would be to be a superhero in an X-Men or Justice League-type film, swatting away bad guys and saving the earth from ultimate destruction.
Of his character in Remembrance, which will be performed Jan. 29-31 at the Noyes Cultural Arts Center in Evanston, Jack says “Spence still has a youthful sense of humor and is not vengeful. His purpose is to be there for those he loves and help them.”
