“The king of juggling!”

-Wyatt Cenac

“Jacob D’Eustachio is one of the world’s great young jugglers. He was entirely lovable in the role of Trinculo—whose clowning he embodied in our production of The Tempest—and his performance will be fondly remembered for many years.  Jacob is a dear goofball, profoundly serious about his art form. If you have even a slight chance of seeing Jacob perform, by all means, GO.”
– Grant Mudge, Ryan Producing Artistic Director, Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival

“A running sequence of clumsy acts by Jacob adds a luscious layer of comedy to the action treat aimed at children”
-The Hindu, Chennai India

“D’Eustachio has the verbosity and humor to entertain any crowd…He returned with a choreographed hat routine full of inventive trickery that sparkles from all angles.”
-Juggle Magazine

“Professional juggler Jacob D’Eustachio plays the clown Trinculo, and his juggling of balls and his tricks with a bowler hat give an often mesmerizing and humorous physicality to the role that illustrates Trinculo’s profession.”
-The South Bend Tribune

“Add to that D’Eustachio’s constant and near perfect demonstration of the art of juggling, all the while maintaining his wily character, and you have a “Tempest” that literally has something for everyone, as evidenced by the reactions of the audience of all ages!”
–MarciaMarciaMarcia.net

“Impressive juggling skills.”

-The New Indian Express, Chennai India

“Jacob D’ Eustachio has an infectious joy that gives energy and life to all he does. He played Trinculo in the record-breaking production of THE TEMPEST for Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival, and was a crowd favorite. Trinculo came to life as a jester, a true saltimbanque, in Jacob’s masterful comedic portrayal, blending both his world-class juggling skills along with an ease of handling the text. I’d work with him again in an instant!”
–West Hyler (Director Cirque du Soleil’s Paramour, Big Apple Circus)
