Jeremy's San Francisco show sounds a lot like the one I caught at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre in mid-January. Benjamin Rauhala accompanied him on piano and with banter. Besides the songs you've mentioned, he also did complete versions of "Shiksa Goddess" (The Last Five Years), title songs from two workshop musicals (In the Light, The Violent Hour), "Big Cat" (A Killer Party), "Nothing Left to Lose" (Tangled), "The Greatest Show" (The Greatest Showman), "Maybe I'm Amazed" (Joyful Noise), "Grow for Me" (Little Shop of Horrors), "Bring Him Home" (Les Miserables), "She Used to Be Mine" (Waitress), and, of course, "Santa Fe".

Like what you saw, the highlight was a 20-minute recap of Newsies, which also featured Jordan doing dance steps, key dialogue, and some spitting. Jeremy also gave us a hint into the shows he and his daughter Clara did at home during the covid shutdown, mostly duets from Frozen and Frozen 2.

Great show overall and a terrific night at the theatre! Running time was around an hour and 45 minutes. I think there was an intermission, but I may be mistaken about that.
