Jason Aguirre Headshot

Jason Aguirre (he/him/el) is a New York-based, queer, Mexican-American director, bookwriter, and choreographer, specializing in new work development. His work merges physical and immersive theatre elements to inspire imagination, spark curiosity, and compel audiences to be skeptical of the status quo. 


As a director and dramaturg, Jason has developed and presented work at Ars Nova, HERE Arts, Vineyard Theatre, Roundabout Theatre Company, Judson Arts, The Tank, Pete’s Candy Store, and the Maker’s Ensemble. He is a SDCF Fellow – mentored by Susan Stroman, an alumnus of the Directors Group at Roundabout Theatre Company, a graduate of the George and Joy Abbott MFA in Musical Theatre Collaboration at Temple University, a recipient of Temple University’s Future Faculty Fellowship, the 2021 Artistic Producing Fellow at Vineyard Theatre, and recipient of the 2024 Boris Sagal Fellowship from Williamstown Theatre Festival.

As an associate and assistant director, Jason has worked with such luminary directors as Anne Kauffman, Rachel Chavkin, Walter Bobbie, and Darko Tresnjak. Recent and upcoming solo directing credits include THIRD SEX: 1930s TRANSVESTITE LIEDER at Ars Nova Ant Fest, SINS OF SOR JUANA at Fordham University, and R.U.R. at Long Island University. 


As a writer, Jason is a member of the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theatre  Workshop, and a founding member of Theatre Now’s National Musical Writers Group. Musicals in development include SICK MOVES (OR THE DANCING PLAGUE OF 1518) – a pop/rock musical comedy reimagining the mysterious dancing plague, PUBLIC DOMINANCE — an insurance pamphlet wrapped in a rom-com wrapped in a superhero movie, and BRANDED – a Sci-Fi musical dark comedy about social media tags and labels and tags.


As an artistic leader, Jason is the Founding Co-Artistic Director of UNTITLED Musical Project — a not-for-profit dedicated to providing space for marginalized musical theatre writers of BIPOC/Global Majority, LGBTQIA+/Queer, and their intersecting identities to develop their work and engage in supporting and critiquing their colleague's work.


Jason is a proud member of the Dramatists Guild and an Associate Member of the Stage Directors and Choreographer Association.
