Another few weeks have gone by and I haven't been good about keeping this blog up to date. All is good from the road. After Chicago we spent a week in Greenville (my mom came to visit), Huntsville, Nashville, Grand Rapids (my family all came to spend Thanksgiving together), Kansas City (my dad came to visit) and now Charlotte.
Next up is DC for 3 weeks and then Philly for 2 weeks. THEN I COME HOME!!!! Yay. So excited to live with my family under one roof again (it'll be a year and a half since we all lived together because I basically went from Neverland to Les Miz without much of a break). It's been an awesome experience but I'm excited for whats coming next.
IIf you are not following me on Instagram, please check out @JordanColeOfficial because I update that page much more than this one.
HOPE TO SEE YA SOON!

I became friends with Gavroche in Norway and Brazil. Gavroches unite!
For Halloween I was Steven Universe
Look who I ran in to in Chicago
We ran in to the Kids of School or Rock in the airport
Chicago is awesome! I was here for a few weeks with Neverland (we got to perform in the Thanksgiving Day Parade) and it's great to be back. We're at the same theater too, which is cool. The Cadillac Palace theater is pretty big and very nice and not too far from the hotel (long walks after performing is not my thing).
I loved going back to my favorite restaurants like Randolph Tavern (Mac & Cheese there is sooooo gooooood), Corner Bakery (I suggest the Mac & Cheese), Yolk (believe it or not I didn't get the Mac & Cheese), Wild Berry (PANCAKES!).
We went to see Hamilton which rocked! the Children's Museum, Millennium Park, bowling, Navy pier, Ashleigh took me to see my first Bugati, we've been volunteering at an animal shelter every week... and, oh yeah, we're also performing for 2300 people 8 shows each week! And the audiences have been FANTASTIC!
So, we've been a bit busy. Not too busy to have some fun though.
Check out some pix below...
Greenville, Huntsville, Nashville and then Grand Rapids for Thanksgiving
In December/January we'll be closer to home in DC and Philly!
Second city on the tour! It is nice being so close to NY because I was able to go home in between Providence and Hartford and hang with my fam for a few days before taking the train to Hartford with Ashleigh, my chaperone. The power went out on the train ride, but it was fine because we were with Julia, Julian, Ms Jess and a few other people from the tour who were also on the same train.
In Hartford we went on a class trip to the Mark Twain house and Harriet Beecher Stowe center which was cool.
I had sooooo many people come visit in Hartford, it was amazing! My parents, my sister and her friends, my agent (Barry), my cousins, my grandparents, my friend from the local production of "Les Miz" I did a few years ago. See all the great pix below!
Me & Ashleigh
In between Providence and Hartford I got to hang with my old friend, Cory, and my new friend Levi. They both ROCK in School of Rock on Broadway (go check them out asap @coryloganmusic and @levibclt).

Duckie, duckie, duckie, GOOSIE!
Is this a dream? Or am I really playing Gavroche in Les Miz?!?! (Pinch). Yup, it's real!!!
Sorry, haven't had a blog post in awhile. I was in "tech" in Providence, RI for 2 weeks and then, this past Thursday we opened the show. So, it's been a bit crazy to say the least. I love it here in Providence!
My parents and sister came for the opening weekend and there was a big party and CAMERON MACKINTOSH WAS THERE! He saw me play Gavroche on Saturday night. Is that nuts!?!?!
I'm having a great time. I hope all of you can come see a show sometime soon. Everyone in the show is fantastic!

WOW. Big News! I am going to be playing Gavroche on the upcoming National tour of Les Miserables. Who would have thought when I saw this play on Broadway 4 years ago that I would be up there myself singing some of my favorite songs in one of my favorite musicals of all time! I don't know what to say except I am super excited and looking forward to getting started. Rehearsals start Monday!!!!
Check out the "Les Miserables Dates & Tix" tab above for upcoming dates and to purchase tickets.

This is what the Llewelyn Davies boys did during our most recent Golden Day in Florida (plus a little swimming, baseball, basketball and sleepover action). It's a version of a song from Finding Neverland with a Rory Donovan twist. Check out the original on the soundtrack!
I'm heading home after 10 great months on the road. Here's our last soundcheck (in 2 parts) before Mitchell, Finn, Ben and I leave Neverland (our last show is 6/25).
Thanks Corey Rives for taking these for me! Which do you guys think I should use?
My sister and dad came to visit us in New Orleans. We got to spend Mothers Day together which was great.
The theater was incredible, the ceiling looks like you're outside. The hotel was nice and walking distance to the theater which was cool. My dad and I went to the WWII museum. Awesome planes and tanks there! We had a second line band escort us to the theater one day. My dad showed me Bourbon street and told me about Mardi Gras. AND WE GOT TO SWIM!!!!
We loved San Antonio! The river walk was awesome. We had a fun boat ride, The Majestic theater was really nice. We had an interview for TV. Went to the Alamo and had yummy Mexican food.
