Show Notes

Jordan spent the last year touring internationally as Simba in The Lion King, marking his first major leading role.

Jordan has appeared in the West End productions of Miss Saigon, Motown and Cats with his other credits including The Scotsborough Boys (Young Vic), Follies & Hadestown (National Theatre) and Tick Tick Boom (Park Theatre).

In this episode, Jordan discusses life in The Lion King and why Simba was a dream role of his. We also discuss his path into the industry, some of the big decisions he has had to make throughout his career and his stagey obsessions.

Please note, this episode was recorded before theatres had closed and the UK was in lockdown.

Hosted by Andrew Tomlins.
