Supergirl star and Tony-nominated actor Jeremy Jordan is returning to the Broadway stages for a captivating new role in the upcoming show, American Son. He will be appearing alongside Kerry Washington and Steven Pasquale in this Broadway-debut work by writer Christopher Demos-Brown.

“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to join this remarkably talented group of artists. I’ve been dying to return to Broadway for quite some time, and American Son is everything I could ask for: challenging, timely, intimate, and a vast departure from anything else I’ve ever done,” Jeremy shared in a press statement. “What I love most about this piece is that from the moment the lights come up, it forces us to listen. Even when we disagree, even when we know we must be right, it reminds us we still have to listen to each other, and for some reason that’s something I think we collectively decided to stop doing a long time ago. I’m very excited to be joining Kenny Leon and this fantastic cast to tell this incredibly important story.”

The show takes place in “a Florida police station in the middle of the night [where] a mother [is] searching for her missing teenage son,” according to a show description. Jeremy will be playing Officer Paul Larkin in his first-ever dramatic play role. (He has previously been in the Broadway musicals Bonnie & Clyde and Newsies.)

Show previews are set to begin on October 6, with opening night following on November 4. The play will run for 16 weeks at the Booth Theater, which is located at 222 West 45th St. in New York City. To snag your tickets now, visit the American Son play’s website.
