John Lloyd Young won a Tony and a Grammy for his portrayal of Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys. He’s back in town for three months, guest starring in his old role. After seeing the show last week, I fired off an email hoping to get a photograph. He’s doing eight shows a week, but agreed to meet me this afternoon before he went into the August Wilson theater.
John spent the few minutes we had together talking about HONY, which really caught me off guard. I wasn’t sure he’d even had the chance to look at the blog, and here he is expressing a very detailed appreciation. He barely left me time to tell him how much I loved his performance.
Anyway, John Lloyd Young: Tony winner, Grammy winner, really nice dude. If you haven’t seen him in Jersey Boys— you’re really missing out.
