ARRRR!! Back to bein' a pirate in TREASURE ISLAND
Opens April 28!
Excited to announce that I'll be doing my best version of a sun-bleached, treasure-obsessed castaway in the new musical version of TREASURE ISLAND upcoming at the Aurora Fox Arts Center. Originated at the National Theatre in London, this is the regional premiere in Colorado! Portraying the marooned Skeleton Island pirate, Benn Gunn, I'm sinking my character acting teeth into his dreams of cheese! Get your tickets below!
NPR TINY DESK CONTEST!
Hey check out SQUARE UNTOLD's submission to the NPR Tiny Desk Contest! We chose our folk-blues song, "Learn From Mistakes" since it was the easiest to pare down for an acoustic version, since part of the requirement for Tiny Desk is to (you guessed it), perform the song in front of a tiny desk! In other words, not a lot of room for our typical live rock set-up! But it's a nice break from the amplification sometimes!

Great Reviews For SMALL BALL!
Runs through 11/19!
"Jackson is played by Jordan Leigh, making his debut with The Catamounts. Leigh expertly navigates the tragic comedy of a man who is too small for his ambitions, and his character’s unraveling is easily one of the most entertaining aspects of the show."
Super excited to be playing the role of Phil Jackson in this regional premiere of Mickel Maher's surreal comedy musical, SMALL BALL, with The Catamounts theatre company here in Denver. This show will be unlike anything you've experienced! More to come soon!
In a nutshell: Michael Jordan (not THAT Michael Jordan) is a journeyman basketball player whose latest contract is with the Lilliputian Existers (yes, THAT Lilliput--the one from the satirical 18th century novel Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift.) The team isn't doing so well. Michael Jordan won't pass a regulation size basketball to his 6-inch teammates for fear of squashing them. And the post-game press conferences are getting rough. With book and lyrics by Catamounts favorite Mickle Maher, and music by avant-rock duo Anthony Barilla and Merel van Dijk, SMALL BALL was birthed from the question: "What about a basketball musical?"
Running 10/29-11/20 at Buntport Theater.
SQUARE UNTOLD GIG THIS SATURDAY!

BE THERE OR BE... SQUARE!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHARLIE Trailer!
Don't blink or you'll miss me!
The trailer for the indie pic I appeared in last summer, Happy Birthday Charlie is out! I play the role of Larry, a greasy dirtbag autoshop owner. Considering the fact that I know next to nothing about cars... well... ACTING!

New Music Project (It's not a dad-band man!!)
February 2, 2022
Sometimes a guy has to get off the musical theatre stage and rock the mic. SQUARE UNTOLD, is my new music project with four other amazing musician/songwriters with whom I've collaborated in the past. This band combines multiple styles and genres of music, driven by our desire to express ourselves with lyrical and melodic authenticity. Our first performance will be at Moe's in Englewood on Saturday March 12th. Unlike some of my past bands, this one shouldn't make your ears bleed and won't start at midnight, so come on out! @squareuntoldband
Successful Witch Trials....
'The Crucible Reviews'
"Jordan Leigh was absolutely merciless as Danforth, the Chief Judge in the hearings and trials of the villagers. He twists and turns everyone’s testimony back at them so that every defense they offered only made each situation worse. His cold eyes freeze those brought before him for judgement as they realize there is no hope in this courtroom."
"Leigh is an icily menacing Judge Danforth, a man who sends dozens of Salem residents accused of witchcraft to the gallows with a cruelty, coldness and righteousness that calls to mind Shakespeare's stiff-spined Angelo in Measure for Measure, only Angelo is a patsy compared to Leigh's stomach-churning magistrate."
WITCH HUNT!! (Too soon?)
August 17, 2021
In a show that was set to run in the spring of 2020, we're now heading forward in the Fall of '21! Couldn't be more excited to join this ensemble as Deputy Govenor Danforth in Arthur Miller's classic, The Crucible in my first ever show at Miner's Alley Playhouse in Golden. Click below for tickets!

The Reviews Are In!
March 4, 2020
"Walking the tightrope of sly intellect and wry humor, Jordan Leigh nails the role of Albert Einstein with a performance that’s indelible!"
-David Marlowe (Marlowe's Musings)
"Leigh gives an outstanding, truly brilliant performance as Einstein, owning the show. Everything about his performance cries out "lively and authentic..." -Patrick Dorn (Denver Area Theatre Reviews)
"Leigh's Einstein exudes the avuncular warmth, simplicity, and directness for which the elder Einstein was known..."
-Bob Bows (ColoradoDrama.com)
E=mc2 (Einstein = ME x CHARACTER squared!)
February 28, 2020
That's right! I'm gonna get to embody one of the most iconic (and challenging) characters in history!
SECRETS OF THE UNIVERSE and Other Songs (by Marc Acito!) is a beautiful play about the true story friendship between Albert Einstein and opera singer, Marian Anderson. (Click link for synopsis and tix!) I had the privilege of working earlier in 2019 at the new AURORA FOX ARTS CENTER, and I couldn't be more thrilled to be performing there again in this amazing role!
Gutter Punk at its gutter punkiest...
May 9, 2019
Got to transform into Randy, a gutter-punk sage for the short film, Wayward Son, shot in New Mexico. *Note that my "Daisy" forehead tattoo is the name of my dear old 16 year-old pup. (It helps to personalize.)
Kick-Ass Cast! Kick-Ass Review for LIFE SUCKS!
March 6, 2019
Not that an actor should ever read reviews, but....
"LIFE SUCKS."(But this play doesn't!)
February 15, 2019
So excited to be co-starring in this run of Aaron Posner's, fantastically funny and poignant play, LIFE SUCKS, running for four weeks from 2/21-3/17 at the Aurora Fox Arts Center, in Aurora, CO.
From the press release: "This brash and revelatory reworking of “Uncle Vanya” finds a group of old friends, ex-lovers, estranged in-laws and lifelong enemies gathering to grapple with life’s thorniest questions… and each other. What could possibly go wrong? Called “sassy yet heartfelt” by The Washington Post and “altogether wise, profoundly humane and hilarious” by the Chicago Sun Times, this is not any Chekov you know. Never has unhappiness been so much fun."

Shootem Up! (While filming the indie feature, ROOK!)
November 1, 2018
Had a blast (literally) shooting the indie feature film, ROOK. Written and directed by an all-Colorado team and starring almost entirely an all-Colorado cast, the film is billed as a "modern day western". Once again, I play a maniacal character, (James the Minnow). But THESE are the FUN roles, people!! Shot in Victor and Cripple Creek, Colorado over the course of two weeks, the producers are planning a spring 2019 premiere! Keep you posted!

Seven weeks Rockin' the Rocky Mountains as a Rockstar in my Colorado mountain home away from home heaven?? Ohhhhh yeeeeeaah.....
May 29, 2018
If I can't be an official rockstar in real life, at LEAST I get to play one for a four-week run at the AMAZING, Lake Dillon Theatre Company in Summit County, Colorado in ROCK OF AGES. Not only do I have the fondest childhood memories of this incredible place just an hour from Denver up in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, BUT... my own dearly talented theatre professional, mum, Lennie Singer actually founded this very theatre company 23 years ago when she and my dad moved from California to Colorado. And now, all this time later, her good boy is employed! Way to go, Lennie! Check out the link for tix now since they sell out fast!! RAWK!!

Holy Hollywood Legends! I'm working with Robert Redford and Jane Fonda!
October 6, 2016
So amazing to find myself acting in a scene with both Robert Redford AND Jane Fonda in their upcoming film, OUR SOULS AT NIGHT, directed by Ritesh Batra. Based in the fictional town of Holt, Colorado, some of the film was shot in Cañon City, including the moment when my character, Chris who works at a small town dog shelter, introduces them to their new dog, a wounded border collie. (D'awww...) Needless to say, as an acting experience, it was a bit surreal. More details to come!!!
Moving to the 'Querque!!
