Just had to start a new topic especially for the fantastic Andrew Rannells! (Couldn't find one all about him, but sorry if there is one and I missed it, I'm a newbie!) Saw Jersey Boys for the first time when I was in New York - my first Broadway musical and a it turned out to be a fab choice!!! Was totally blown away by the whole show and the whole cast, but in particular Andrew Rannells as Bob Gaudio really stood out for me, I couldn't take my eyes off him when he was on stage, he was so engaging and his voice blew me away! Now obviously I've not seen anyone else in the role, but I know he must be good to keep so much of my attention, and for me not to stop talking about him since! (And to post on one of these things, which usually scare me as I'm a technophobe!) I've seen a LOT of musicals (I live just outside London and so am lucky enough to be able to visit the West End on a regular basis!) but can name very few standout performers like Andrew. Now I'm desperate to come back to America so I can see them again, I'm worried the West End cast will not compare!
Also have to mention Dominic Scaglione Jr who was on as Frankie, seems to be a relatively new talent in the Broadway circle, but already very popular, and I'm sure he will go far. But for me Andrew was the number one star of the show!
Sorry to go on! It's just nice to talk to other people who appreciate such an amazing show! Long may it continue!
