Beginning in 1998 at the tiny Silver Meteor Gallery, Jenkins’ Jobsite Theater has since become the resident company at the Straz Center and a dependable venue for daring plays such as no other local theater thinks to program. Thanks to tenacious Jenkins, Bay area theatergoers can be grateful that there’s one company in Tampa that aims for an audience of 20- and 30-somethings, that loves good loud music, and that isn’t afraid to offer Shakespeare next to Ray Bradbury.
