Choreographer Sergio Trujillo Tells Broadway.com He Would ‘Welcome’ Nick Jonas & Darren Criss to Star in JERSEY BOYS!March 16th, 2012
From Broadway.com: How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying star and New Jersey native Nick Jonas recently told Broadway.com that he aspired to play fellow pop star Frankie Valli in Broadwayâ€™s Jersey Boys. Broadway.com caught up with Jersey Boys choreographer Sergio Trujillo to ask his opinion on Jonas stepping into the leading role of global monster hit:
Iâ€™d love to see Nick Jonas play Frankie Valli. I work very closely with the Frankies, [and] I welcome all those guysâ€”Nick Jonas and Darren Criss. I think itâ€™s a really wonderful role; itâ€™s very layered and itâ€™s a very challenging role physically, emotionally and, of course, vocally. I think itâ€™d be wonderful for him.
What do you guys think of Jonas and/or Criss starring as “Frankie” in JERSEY BOYS on stage? What about either of these actors playing the pop icon in the movie adaptation?
