Standing @ Zero: West Side Story's Jarred Manista

Happy New Year, Ensemblist fans everywhere! We are so thrilled by your overwhelming response to these pictorial tributes to the men who stand at 0 every night when they bring their hard work (and stellar dance moves) to the musicals we love. Hard to believe this monthly feature is starting its second year already!

Jarred Manista

We start off 2020 with our youngest honoree to date, who is a swing in the first musical to open this year, West Side Story. A recent high school graduate, Jarred Manista is making his Broadway debut, but he's no stranger to the spotlight. In school, he played leading roles in such shows as Big Fish and Newsies (what a cool drama program, his alma mater must have). Most recently, he played Fender in Hairspray at the Skylight Music Theatre and Baby John in West Side Story at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. He is also an accomplished dancer, belonging to several companies.
