WHY HE'S MR. BROADWAY: Maybe it is the fact that he's been a Broadway star on the rise since he took over the role of Tony in West Side Story. Maybe it is the fact that he is the lead in the Paper Mill Playhouse production of the world premiere of Disney's Newsies. Or maybe it is the fact that the entire annual article about fall musicals on Broadway in the Arts Fall Preview of The New York Times was about him, the star of two, big musicals: the aforementioned and possibly Broadway-bound Paper Mill show and the definite Broadway show, Bonnie and Clyde. And it very well could be the fact that he is one half of one of Broadway's "it" couples - his fiancee is Priscilla's Ashley Spencer. No matter what it is, Jeremy Jordan is the real thing - talented, easy on the eyes, and an honest-to-goodness Broadway baby!
