Jeremy Jordan 002

FORT LAUDERDALE – The Broadway Concert Series hosted by Seth Rudetsky launches a new season with Jeremy Jordan, Tony Award® nominated star of Newsies and NBC’s Smash and CW’s Supergirl on Saturday, January 6 at 8 p.m.

The Broadway channel host and one of Broadway’s newest leading men will deliver an evening of incredible music and hilarious conversation in this series presented by the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and Mark Cortale.

Jordan landed his first Broadway show in 2009, Rock of Ages, which he left the same year to play the lead role of Tony in West Side Story. He next starred on Broadway as Clyde Barrow in the short-lived Bonnie & Clyde before his star-making performance as Jack Kelly in Disney's Newsies, for which he was nominated for a Tony Award as Best Actor in a Musical. Film credits include Joyful Noise opposite Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah and The Last 5 Years.

He is familiar to TV audiences having been a regular on NBC's hit series Smash, the voice of Varian for Tangled on the Disney Channel and for his current role on Supergirl. A performer who has sold out shows in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and London, Jordan has performed his solo cabaret show in clubs around the country. 

Dubbed “The Mayor of Broadway,” Rudetsky is also the host of “Seth Speaks” on Sirius/XM Stars and has written three volumes of Seth's Broadway Diary featuring inside scoop and hilarious stories from all of the stars with whom he has worked. He co-wrote and co-starred in Disaster! on Broadway and, in June 2016, he and his husband, James Wesley, co-produced a recording of "What The World Needs Now" with stars including Idina Menzel, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Carole King and Audra McDonald, which went to number one on iTunes and raised $100,000 for the Orlando shooting victims. The couple also produces Concert For America, a monthly series of benefit concerts held around the country.

The Broadway Concert Series continues with Rachel Bay Jones, 2017 Tony winner for Dear Evan Hansen (February 16) and Christine Ebersole, two-time Tony Award-winning star of War Paint, Grey Gardens and 42nd Street (March 24).

Tickets to individual events in the series are $37-$67 with $123 VIP tickets which include a post-show meet and greet with the artists.
