Jeremy Jordan is heading back to the stage, folks!

Jordan, who made a guest stint back on The CW’s Supergirl, will be taking over the role of Seymour in the Off-Broadway revival of Little Shop of Horrors. He takes over for Gideon Glick (To Kill a Mockingbird) who took over from Jonathan Groff (Mindhunter). 

Jordan exited Supergirl after the show’s third season. He went onto star in the Broadway play American Son opposite Kerry Washington. They would play opposite each other in a Netflix adaptation of the play as well. He first burst onto the scene in an adaptation of Disney’s cult classic Newsies.

Talking with People, Jordan expressed his excitement in taking over the role. We’re pretty excited as well. If we were casting a new movie version of the beloved musical, Jordan would be our first choice for Seymour.

“Seymour is definitely a role that I always loved. I remember seeing the [2003 Broadway production]; it was one of the first shows I ever saw in the city, actually. I had seen the movie, but that’s how I became really familiar with it. From there, I went on to sing some of the songs before too, in concerts. But I never thought I’d have the chance to play it, so it’s especially fun to be jumping in to this.”

Jordan will join the show for an eight-week run beginning on March 17. Little Shop of Horrors performs at Westside Theater in New York with tickets on sale now.
