Bobby Fox’s Journey from Riverdance to Jersey

September 30th, 2009

Frankie Valli & Bobby FoxReporters Majella Reid and Ailbhe Gillespie note that Bobby Fox has reached new heights in his career as a performer, having landed the lead role in the International hit musical, Jersey Boys.

The musical, which is currently running in Melbourne, Australia, tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, a band that had 27 top 30 hits in the USA. Bobby performs the role of Frankie Valli.

“This is the first lead role I’ve had in a musical. It is the role to rule them all, as far as I’m concerned,” says Bobby. “It takes my talent and really stretches it. It is a very challenging role.”

Since opening in July 2009 at The Princess Theatre, Melbourne, the musical has been performing to a sell out crowd six days a week.

Bobby is no stranger to the stage limelight having been a top class performer since his late teens.

He danced with Riverdance prior to 2002 when he moved to Sydney to undertake a performing arts course, and in the last seven years he has performed in many musicals, such as Mamma Mia and To Dance On The Moon, as he climbed the success ladder to his present role.
