Jonathan Christopher Biography

Praised for his "hearty baritone" voice, Bermudian-Bostonian Jonathan Christopher is swiftly establishing himself as a premier versatile vocalist in New York City and around the world. In New York he has performed in critically acclaimed productions at Lincoln Center (Davóne Tines and Michael Schachter’s The Black Clown), Signature Theatre (Dave Malloy’s Octet), and Brooklyn Playhouse Theatre (David Chesky’s La Farranucci), and has been seen singing in the world renown cabarets of Joe’s Pub, The Duplex, and Don’t Tell

Mama. He has been involved with two musicals set to open on Broadway in the coming seasons and has performed in musicals and operas throughout North America, Europe, and the Caribbean, including the role of Collins in the Aruban premiere of the musical Rent.



In concert, Jonathan toured Italy with the gospel quartet

Gospel 4; Germany with the opera band The Cast; his native Bermuda; and southeast Asia, Oceania, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean while onboard the luxury liner Seabourn Encore, performing alongside Broadway lyricist Sir Tim Rice.

​

Over the years Jonathan was seen dancing with Diana Ross, working out with Lady Gaga, and most triumphantly singing with Celine Dion on the Today Show! An absolute career and personal highlight was

hosting Bermuda’s first ever Pride in 2019 alongside his father, Bermudian Town Crier Ed Christopher. Along with his brother, fellow actor Nicholas Christopher, Jonathan received the prestigious 2020 Best of Bermuda Award. To top it all off, Jonathan is a member of the Hamilton National Tour, understudying Aaron Burr and George Washington and having played the Canadian premiere in Toronto.



With degrees in voice and opera from the University of Michigan and McGill University, Jonathan looks forward to continuing his eclectic and ever-evolving musical journey.
