Biography

Jonathan Bradford Wright (born December 13 1986) is an American actor who is best known for his performance as Hanschen, in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Spring Awakening.

Wright won a prestigious scholarship to the Cranbrook Summer Theater in his junior year of high school, where he played Romeo in a production of Romeo and Juliet. In 2003, he was cast in Jake Heggie’s opera Dead Man Walking at the Michigan Opera Theater. At the age of 16, Jonathan came to New York and attended the summer acting workshop at The Lee Strasberg Theater Institute. Upon graduation from high school in 2005, returned to New York to become the youngest member of The Actors Center’s nine month conservatory program. Jonathan auditioned in 2005 for a role in the Off-Broadway musical production of Spring Awakening at the Atlantic Theater Company. Jonathan was cast in the role of Hanschen, the choir boy who seduces his fellow male classmate, for which he has received rave reviews, being cited by some as a scene-stealer. He continued with Spring Awakening as it moved to Broadway and went on to win 8 Tony awards. Wright’s final performance was on April 20, 2008.

In October 2007, Wright was cast as Lethario in his first feature film, Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, which was released on October 3, 2008.
