Jordan is currently playing Bill Montijo in the West Coast Premiere of MYSTIC PIZZA, Sandy Rustin's musical adaptation of the classic 80's film, directed by Casey Hushion (Jan 19-Feb 11 at La Mirada Theatre).
A big voice and a busy mind...
Jordan has always carved his own unique path. A classical actor with a big rock and roll voice, plus musical theatre chops to match. A singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist with a solo show about OCD. A director who founded a site-specific indie theatre in his hometown and once staged a fake museum exhibit. He embraces his bundles of passions and quirks, and loves telling a good story more than anything in the world. After six years in the DC area, he now calls NYC home.
Praised for his “ceaselessly inventive theatrical imagination” (DC Theatre Arts), Jordan was still studying acting at Ithaca College when he founded DC's 4615 Theatre Company (John Aniello Award for Outstanding Emerging Theatre), and produced over 30 productions, while also appearing frequently on DC stages. In 2021, Jordan wrote, composed and performed OLD SOUL, a solo musical blending rock music with comic storytelling about his lifelong tango with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Originally created for live virtual performance, Jordan performed a sold out tour for online audiences across four continents. He is now revising the show for a new stage version.
A powerhouse vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Jordan’s music has been featured by world-renowned singer-songwriter Ben Folds, and he studied with Tony-winning composer William Finn. His music is available on all major platforms, and he was a 2022 Senior Cabaret and Performance Fellow at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center. He also produces and hosts Don't Call Us Emerging, a recurring concert series featuring singer-songwriters from the New York theatre community. He holds a BFA in Acting from Ithaca College, and a Diploma in Classical Acting from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
