Though he’s only 37 years old, Jordan Roth is considered to be one of the most influential people on Broadway today. He is the President and part-owner of Jujamcyn Theaters – a company that operates five theaters in Broadway.

Roth got his Philosophy and Theater degrees at Princeton University in 1997 and his MBA from the Columbia Business School. In 1999, Roth experimented with interactive theater through the staging of The Donkey Show at a New York City nightclub where the audience gathers around the dance floor to watch the show and continue partying afterwards. His hit show was followed by several other smash productions and was the youngest lead producer to ever score a nomination for his work in the restaging of The Rocky Horror Picture Show in2001. Aside from Best Musical Revival, the show also received 3 more Tony nominations, as well as nominations from other award-giving bodies.

Roth joined Jujamcyn theaters in 2005 and in a short span of time was able to work his way up to the top spot and now owns 50% of the company.
