Upon leaving West Side Story, Jeremy traveled to Sarasota, Florida to play Clyde Barrow in Bonnie & Clyde. After a successful month run, he then headed to Atlanta, Georgia to film his first feature film, Joyful Noise. Todd Graff, who wrote and directed the film, happened to be at Jeremy's very first performance at Rock of Ages and cast him in the movie.
In the fall of 2011, Jeremy got to fulfill a childhood dream when he was cast as Jack Kelly in Disney's world premiere production of Newsies. While Jeremy was enjoying playing Jack Kelly at night, during the day he was rehearsing for Bonnie & Clyde which would come to Broadway shortly after Newsies finished its run.
In November of 2011, Jeremy got to originate his first leading role on Broadway in Bonnie & Clyde; once again he got to play Clyde Barrow. The production closed after 69 performances.
Shortly after Bonnie & Clyde's closing, Jeremy announced he would be returning to Newsies to play Jack Kelly at the Nederlander theatre in March 2012.
