An honors graduate of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Jesse Robb has worked continuously in theatre and dance companies internationally since he was seventeen. Jesse is currently the Associate Choreographer for the Tony-Nominated 2017 Revival of Miss Saigon and The Cher Show. For Saigon, he staged the performance on the Tony Awards Broadcast and remounted the show for the subsequent North American tour in the fall of 2018.
As a Director/Choreographer, Jesse most recently helmed two productions for RWS Entertainment Group: Big Top Dreams at Hersheypark and The Night Spot for Azamara Club Cruises.
Up next, Jesse will be choreographing A Christmas Carol at Theatre Calgary (dir. Stafford Arima) and Spamalot at the Stratford Festival (dir. Lezlie Wade). He is also currently developing the new musical The Big Time with Douglas Carter Beane.
Other credits as Choreographer and Associate Director/Choreographer include:
The Ordway in Minneapolis (2019’s revamped 42nd Street)
The 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle (2019’s Rock of Ages)
Ogunquit Playhouse (Ragtime, dir. Seth Skylar-Heyn)
Cape Playhouse (Cabaret)
Berkshire Theatre Festival (Hair)
Jesse’s sold-out production of Ragtime for the Ogunquit Playhouse was reviewed by Terry Teachout of the Wall Street Journal as "a Broadway-worthy first rate piece of work."
Jesse has choreographed production numbers for the Turner Classic Movie channel based on the classic films The Bandwagon, Anything Goes, and An American in Paris.
