Getting To Know Jason Simon

At a petite 6'3", Jason Simon is a presence! Whether he's bringing audiences to tears as the not so gentle giant Lenny in Of Mice & Men, uproarious laughter as the Cowardly Lion in the Wizard of Oz, or a richly voiced, movingly human approach of merely sharing the story of his people as the dairy farmer Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof, Mr. Simon is a stage presence to contend with!

 

Born in Seattle, WA, his family moved frequently along the West Coast where he attended high school in Huntington Beach, CA. After trying his hand in Los Angeles he was given the advice that if he wanted to be a stage performer he needed to move out east. After a brief amount time in the New England theater scene he finally made the move to New York where his career really took off.

 

He’s been seen on TV, film, as a voice in both video games & animated features, and in over 70 different theatrical productions including the national tours of Funny Girl, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Cats, The Producers, The Wizard of Oz, and Sister Act. He’s appeared Off-Broadway and at some of the largest national regional theaters in America. He’s performed at Lincoln Center with the New York Philharmonic. In four productions at the Metropolitan Opera he’s had the good fortune to work with famed director/choreographer Susan Stroman and Maestro James Levine, and shared the stage with opera greats Renée Fleming, Susan Graham, and Sir Thomas Allen.
