Jonathan Cruz

Pastor/Ensemble, Priscilla Queen of the Desert

Jonathan is excited to join Piper Theatre’s production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert. As a Park Slope native Jonathan spent several summers attending Piper Theatre as a student (Corday the Assassin, Fiddler on the Roof) and later working as an assistant director (Flash Gordon). While studying Drama at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School he was cast as “Usnavi” in the school’s production of “In the Heights”. Aside from acting Jonathan has a love for film and studied at the Tribeca Film Institute where he was a part of their Film Fellowship program and was awarded for pitching a short film. He continues to perform and pursue his dreams of acting and directing. Jonathan is thankful for the never ending support from his family, as well as the entire Piper Theatre staff who has always welcomed him back with open arms. Jonathan would like to send a special thanks to John P. McEneny who since his middle school days has not only been an amazing mentor, but a dear friend and role model.
