My Name is Asher Lev (Asher Lev)

Playhouse on Park

Directed by Joe Discher

"Jordan Sobel is brilliant as Asher Lev. He switches seamlessly from 10-year-old, to 13-year-old, to adult Asher, all while delivering a steady stream of narration and telling his own story (and never leaving the stage). His delivery was conflicted, nuanced, complex and simply marvelous." - Broadwayworld

"As portrayed by the wonderful Jordan Sobel, Asher Lev takes the audience on a journey...Sobel speaks to the audience directly throughout the piece, and this actor's warmth and authority command the stage…Sobel is excellent at delineating the various ages Asher is at different points in the story...a large part of what makes this show work so well is this actor's connection to the audience. Asher Lev's passion is almost contagious and one can't help but root for him." - Talkin' Broadway

"Jordan Sobel is sincere and passionate as Asher Lev." - CT Critics

"The performances, anchored by Sobel and under the direction of Joseph Discher, give “Asher Lev” a tender, intimate life…Sobel delicately touches on the various ages of Asher from a young child to an adult." - Journal Inquirer

"Played winningly by Jordan Sobel…The actor captures the character’s certainty about his destiny as well as his need to resist his father’s autocracy, without overplaying the latter." - InTheSpotlightInc

Disgraced (Isaac)

Asolo Repertory Theatre

Directed by Michael Donald Edwards

"Jordan Ben Sobel is strong, mature and biting as Isaac". - Herald Tribune

"Perhaps most impressive.. is the powerful performance of Jordan Ben Sobel as Jory's Jewish husband, Isaac.  Sobel, who has given several noteworthy performances for both Asolo Rep and the

Conservatory, manages to not only hold his own with the venerable cast of more experienced actors; he shines in every scene." - The Bradenton Times

"...Delivered with passion and precision by the cast (all of whom seem to have a firm handle on their characters), is smart, probing, honest and at times painful, as these people confront their prejudices and beliefs about each other and themselves—just as we must do while watching them." - Sarasota Magazine

Intimate Apparel (Mr. Marks)

Palm Beach Dramaworks

Directed by Belinda Boyd


"Sobel’s understated performance as Mr. Marks is achingly beautiful." - Palm Beach Daily News

Barefoot In The Park (Paul)

Gulfshore Playhouse

Directed by Peter Amster

“Jordan Sobel, as Paul, has the heaviest lifting of comic timing to match his fraying restraint with his wife’s cannon fire of ideas, and he handles it beautifully. When he finally does wind up in a rant dance across the sofa, he’s hysterically funny.” - The Naples Press

"Gulfshore Playhouse’s production of 'Barefoot in the Park' blew all the dust off this old chestnut....It was revelatory how much fun this play can be, with the right actors, the right director, and the right creative crew...We care about this couple and their ridiculous spat. Ms. Yancey and Mr. Sobel give us three-dimensional people who are realistic, but also funny. You can see what attracted them to each other...This is a finely tuned, well-choreographed ensemble of comedic actors who will entertain you from start to finish...Unless you own a time machine, this is probably the best production of 'Barefoot in the Park' you could hope to see." Florida Weekly

Belleville (Zack)

Company of Fools

Directed by Cameron Clarke

"Bringing an appealing laidback everyman quality to the role of Zack is the bearded and soulful Jordan Sobel. Mr. Sobel’s soothing voice, low-key sensuality and quiet charisma informs his engaging characterization." - TheatreScene

The Play That Goes Wrong (Max)

Pioneer Theatre Company

Directed by Karen Azenberg

"The hysterically funny cast works together like one tight-knit unit, making every problem and mistake feel spontaneous." - Broadwyworld

Northside Hollow (Marshall)

Amphibian Stage

Directed by Jonathan Fielding

"Jorgensen and Sobel play off each other nicely, finding all the uncomfortable moments of humor in a grim situation." - Fort Worth Star Telegram
