Jack's film credits range from the Weinstein Company’s wildly popular cult sensation, Boston Strangler: The Untold Story to the thriller tale Blackout Effect alongside Eric Stoltz. He collaborated with film legend Al Pacino in an unraveling interpretation of Oscar Wilde's once banned and most controversial work in the upcoming release, Wilde Salome. Written and Directed by Pacino, Wilde Salome is a scintillating tale of lust, greed and one woman's scorn. Fall 2010, Jack completed filming the role of Marshall Jones in The Chicago 8, directed by Pinchas Perry. The Chicago 8 is based on actual court transcripts of 8 anti-war protesters on trial for conspiring to cause riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago.
Background & Stage
A descendent of circus trapeze artists, jugglers, and acrobats on one side of his family, and coal miners and minor league ball players on the other side, Stehlin began his career at New York’s prestigious Juilliard School, landing a role in Henry VI, Part I with fellow alums Kevin Spacey, Val Kilmer and Mandy Patinkin. After graduation, he joined the New York Shakespeare Festival, acting in dozens of plays including, Richard II, Henry V, Casanova, Julius Caesar, Timon of Athens, Don Juan and Romeo and Juliet, among others.
Inheriting the circus performer work ethic, Stehlin founded his theatre company Circus Theatricals in 1983. The company’s first performance was Chekov’s Uncle Vanya in which Jack starred opposite Kevin Spacey and Tom Hewitt. Now based out of Los Angeles, Circus Theatricals continues to thrive today, producing classic and new plays to critical acclaim. Jack runs the company with his wife and partner Jeannine, an actress/producer he met in 1995. Together, they have produced more than 50 plays in NYC and Los Angeles, including Harm 'sWay, The Misanthrope, Macbeth, Hamlet, Richard III, Tartuffe, True West, The Cheats of Scapin, The Circle, and The Job.
In 2011, Circus Theatricals changed its name to The New American Theatre.
