Jay Leland Krottinger, 31

Founding Producer, Square 1 Theatrics; COO, IQ Surgical, Tulsa
Krottinger’s recent foray onto the Great White Way paid off in 2013, when he won a Tony Award as a producer for the Broadway revival of Pippin. His company, Square 1 Theatrics, also helped produce A Time To Kill, which last year opened to great acclaim. And the best is yet to come. “Square 1 Theatrics is going international,” says Krottinger. “We just signed the dotted line to co-produce the 2010 Tony Award-winning musical Memphis at the historic Shaftesberry Theatre in London’s West End.” In addition to his roles in Square 1 and IQ Surgical, Krottinger believes strongly in giving back to Tulsa through various organizations. In 2014, he was a co-emcee at the annual Red Ribbon Gala, benefiting Tulsa CARES. “It was an honor and pleasure to emcee the 17th annual Red Ribbon Gala this year,” he says. “What’s even more exciting – I had a wonderful time doing it with my partner as a co-emcee.”
