Yesterday, Jujamcyn Theatres announced that Jordan Roth would slide into the theatre-owner throne left empty by Rocco Landesman, who hopped the Metroliner down to DC to lead the NEA.
What makes this so special?
Well, let's see . . .
There are three major theater chains in NYC: The Shuberts, led by the esteemed Mr. Phil Smith, who is 78, The Nederlanders, led by the indefatigable Jimmy Nederlander, who is 87, and Jujamcyn, which is now led by Jordan Roth, who is . . . wait for it . . . 33.
That's right. A major theater chain is now run by a man who has had a personal computer in his house his entire life. He has had a cell phone in his pocket for 1/3 of his life.
And he's the first Theater Owner with a Facebook page.
Congratulations, Jordan. Let the new generation begin.
