Broadway's John Lloyd Young who created the role of Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys and won every award the New York theatre world has to offer, including the 2006 Tony Award, will be hopping across the pond to star in Jersey Boys in the West End, starting on 15 March until 27 April at the show's new home, the Piccadilly Theatre.
Ryan Molloy, currently playing Frankie Valli, and also Jon Lee will be leaving the production currently at the Prince Edward Theatre on 9 March. Jersey Boys is leaving the Prince Edward to make way for Miss Saigon. Jon Boydon will be staying on.
John Lloyd Young also stars in the highly anticipated big screen adaptation of the musical JERSEY BOYS, directed by Clint Eastwood. The film will be released in theatres on 20 June 2014.
Fantastic news that we are going to see John Lloyd Young performing in the UK but sad that after 6 years Ryan Molloy will be leaving the production. The original four cast members, Ryan, Glenn Carter, Stephen Ashfield and Philip Bulcock were fantastic very talented actors, dancers and singers.
The UK Tour has just announced a new date at the Alexandra Theatre in Birmingham from 9 December until 4 January. You can book tickets here:
