REPEAT PERFORMER: Tony-Award winning theater producer Jordan Roth’s style first registered with thousands on the pink carpet at last year’s Met Gala, and on March 10 he will return to the Metropolitan Museum for more of a speaking role.
Roth has agreed to be the next guest at “The Atelier With Alina Cho,” the speaker series held at the Upper East Side landmark’s auditorium. It is safe to say that his entrance will not be as dramatic as the one last spring. At that time, futuristic designer Iris van Herpen collaborated with Roth for a custom couture tromp l’oeil design that was styled by Michael Philouze. When fanned open with his arms, the cape was a spectacle in itself. In line with the 2019 “Camp: Notes on Fashion” theme, van Herpen and Roth delved into the camp of theater, which is not to be confused with actual theater camp.
Roth will have plenty of real-life performances to reference with Cho. Overseeing five Broadway theaters as Jujamcyn Theaters’ president, Roth has presented such memorable shows as “Hadestown,” “Angels in America,” “The Book of Mormon” and “Moulin Rouge.” As a producer, Roth has won four Tony Awards for “Kinky Boots,” “Clybourne Park,” “Hair” and
