Jeremy Jordan is on the fast-track to Broadway stardom, with roles in two of the fall’s highest-profile musical theater projects. This weekend, he opens in the long-awaited stage version of Newsies at Paper Mill Playhouse, taking on the leading role of Jack Kelly, played by Christian Bale in the Disney film. In November, he’ll land on Broadway in the sexy shoot-’em-up Bonnie & Clyde as famed criminal Clyde Barrow.
