JORDAN STANLEY (he/they) is an Idaho-born NYU graduate splitting time between Vancouver & NYC. Born on great grandma’s 100th birthday and raised on her inherited sheep farm, he spent a whole lot of time playing with dirt in potato-land. There was ample time for imagination. After a star turn as 7th-grade Jean Valjean, Jordan realized there had to be other epic stories out there begging to be told. Musical Theatre beckoned with its sparkly whisper, and Jordan found a home in Manhattan – to the tune of NYU, crushing student debt, and the Spring Awakening soundtrack.
After more than a decade of bodega breakfast sandwiches, Jordan’s performing experience includes Off-Broadway original musicals, plays, rock concerts with Tony-nominated composer Joe Iconis, and numerous regional shows– most recently a production of Waitress in an actual diner. There was, of course, pie.
In addition to performing, Jordan has established a reputable creative design agency with business-and-life partner Amanda Huxtable. JS Productions offers custom website design, reels / video editing, and brand development strategies for evolving artists & creative professionals. The team delivers high-quality, uniquely personal products, and believes that artistic expression shouldn’t be limited or limiting. Their work strives to break the traditional expectations of the online experience.
In this spirit, Jordan also writes poetry, plays several instruments, and puts on sold-out improv comedy shows with 80s/90s cult-classic reenactment troupe, A Drinking Game NYC. He and his guitar are working on a debut solo show together. He’s starred in a number of short films, and is currently writing an animated series about a bratty princess and her good-for-nothing jester (loosely? based on his own marriage).
