Directors. Choreographers
Memphis the Musical“Memphis is incredible! ... Jordan Nichols knows things and sees things that have quickly elevated him to being the premier director/choreographer Memphis has to offer. From the sets to the lights to the costumes to the choreography to the pacing of the show, Nichols has proven (not just with this show) that he can conceptualize all of it in perfect harmony. He makes it look easy-and that’s hard”                   -Focus Midsouth

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
“Inventive and gorgeous, Curious Incident is theater unfolding just at the edge of dance”
                -Memphis Flyer

Miss Saigon“Under Nichols’ direction, the power of love takes precedence over the powers of destruction and cynicism.” It is the… ”sensitivity, originality and technical cohesion that gives Playhouse’s Miss Saigon its strong emotional impact.”
                    -The Commerical Appeal

Disney’s Newsies
“The ensemble is first rate. The singing soars. The choreography is energetic and stunty...Theatre Memphis’ Newsies is perfect and polished”
                -Memphis Flyer

Dreamgirls Dreamgirls is a two and a half hour theatrical energy drink, jam packed with slick production numbers performed by a fresh cast that is plainly up to the task of quenching the audience's thirst for a great time.”
                -Broadway World

The Drowsy Chaperone
“Jordan Nichols, the ‘Tommy Tune’ of the Memphis stage, oozes creativity in every way as a director/choreographer”
                -Focus Midsouth

Once  “invests far more in the power of live music and honest theatrical performance than it does in Broadway spectacle...It’s hard not to get swept up in the songs, and swept away by the story...Highly Recommended”
                -Memphis Flyer

The Flick
“Director Jordan Nichols has pulled together a first rate ensemble...finely tuned perfomances”
                 -Memphis Flyer

Kiss Me, Kate
“This Kiss Me, Kate is a pretty, richly-textured thing with just the right amount of grit... Choreography is applied judiciously, and bent toward maximum fun, punning visually off of Porter’s famous double entendres.”                                            -Memphis Flyer

“Under the confident, buoyant direction of Jordan Nichols, Kiss Me, Kate can stand alone on any of its seperate parts: it “fires on all cylinders.”     
                    -Broadway World

Avenue Q “Director Jordan Nichols has done a great job in bringing the politcally sly puppet and minstrel show to life... It’s occasionally raunchy, always real, and a helluva lot of fun top to bottom.”
                     -Memhis Flyer  

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson“It’s a complicated comedy, and Director Jordan Nichols has assembled a nearly pitch-perfect production, with a cast that plunges into the gory fray with joyous abandon... Don’t miss this one.”
