Jordan Roth is an innovator and leader on Broadway who has established himself as a style tastemaker and thought leader, as well as a talented creator.
As President of Jujamcyn Theaters, he oversees five Broadway theatres, presenting some of the most influential and successful musicals and plays on Broadway today, including FROZEN at the St. James, MEAN GIRLS at the August Wilson, the new musical HADESTOWN at the Walter Kerr, the Tony Award-winning Best Musical THE BOOK OF MORMON now in its eighth year at the Eugene O’Neill, and the Tony Award-winning Best Musical KINKY BOOTS, now in its sixth year at the Al Hirschfeld.
Jordan is a four-time Tony Award-winning producer, winning this year’s Best Revival of a Play for ANGELS IN AMERICA, which broke records as the most Tony-nominated play in Broadway history. He has also won Tony Awards for KINKY BOOTS (2013 Best Musical), CLYBOURNE PARK (2012 Best Play) and HAIR (2009 Best Revival of a Musical).
In February 2018, Jordan debuted his online animated comedy series THE BIRDS AND THE BS WITH JORDAN ROTH, billed as “the kid’s show for adults…because apparently we’ve forgotten everything we learned in kindergarten!” Starring Jordan and featuring animated celebrity guests, including Alan Cumming, Mandy Patinkin, Ana Gasteyer, Sutton Foster, Laura Benanti and Billy Porter, the series addresses hot-button cultural topics with original music and a style all its own.
Jordan and his husband Richie Jackson live in New York City with their two sons.
