Tony nominee Jeremy Jordan (Supergirl, Newsies) has been added to the third annual Elsie Fest lineup. Jordan joins previously announced headliners Alan Cumming (Cabaret), Lea Michele (Glee, Spring Awakening), and Darren Criss (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) as well as special guest performers, including platinum-selling recording artist Ingrid Michaelson (The Great Comet) and Norm Lewis (Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street).
