Episode 9 : Jordan Roth, Broadway Producer + The Value of Sabbatical
Title: Jordan Roth, Broadway producer, president of Jujamcyn and CEO of Culturalist Jordan Roth — who, let’s be clear right from the start, isn’t a relative — joins Evan and returning guest host Daniel Roth to talk about his groundbreaking work on Broadway. Since his first production, The Donkey Show, Jordan has proven himself as someone who can change the way theater works. With shows like Kinky Boots, The Book of Mormon and more, he believes in exciting, engaging and changing the audience — one attendee at a time. As a result, he's racked up award after award: youngest lead producer ever nominated for a Tony Award, Fast Company's "Most Creative People in Business 1000," Backstage's "#2 Most Powerful Person on Broadway". Jordan talks about his career path, how long it took to define himself and why, considering everything on his plate, he decided to also launch Culturalist. Also, Dan and Evan debate vacations and sabbaticals and conclude that the best thing to do is to go on vacation to discuss it more.
