Blake was born the youngest and most awkward of three children to Mike and Mickey Zolfo. He grew up playing violin, french horn, and piano before abandoning all three of them in favor of middle school choir. It all eventually paid off when he was cast in his first musical at the age of 14. Scrooge. And though he was violently reprimanded for wearing white socks underneath his black pants onstage, he knew he wanted to continue doing theatre, potentially for the rest of his life.
It wasn't until his junior year of college at The Boston Conservatory that Blake realized that theatre could be more than people paying money to pay attention to him.
Today, Blake strives to create theatre that is important, socially relevant, and impactful.
You probably expected that last sentence to be funny.
