Whenever Steven M Goldsmith plays Frankie Valli, as opposed to his usual role as Joe Pesci, I'll run to see him! This young man is talented amazingly talented---his stage presence, voice range, acting skills, and overall theatrical prowess makes him a star. After seeing him play the role of Frankie, this kid should undoubtedly land the lead very soon! He's the best of the best!

Steven's my favorite Frankie and that's only based on seeing his first performance. I'm in the same boat as you. Totally running to the Curran whenever he's on. :-)
I look forward to seeing him at the Curran in any role! IE
Steven owns that role when he's on as Frankie. I was lucky to see him go on twice. I'm hoping he get's to go on again atleast one more time before the cast moves on to Chicago. And if he does I'll definately be there. I wouldn't be suprised if he get's bummped up to an alternate Frankie or heads a company in the future later on.
Seems like somebody here is maybe related?
Well, I know for sure two of us in this thread aren't. ;-)
I saw him at the Curran, was a little bummed when he first came out cause I wanted to see Jarrod. He was really good, though, wouldn't mind seeing him play the part again.
Good Lord, how many Frankies are there? Let's see (in order of appearance):
John Lloyd Young
Christopher Kale Jones
John Michael Dias
now Joseph Leo Bwarie
have others gone on as Frankie? (Taylor Sternberg, Eric Gutman, Colin Donnell?)
That seems like a lot of Frankies. Do they have that many of the other Boys?
I understand John Michael Coppola has performed as Frankie. The list is growing.
John Michael Coppola has gone on twice as Frankie and is incredible.
I think each company has 4 people who can cover Frankie.
And in regards to John Michael Coppola, he is an incredable Frankie.
And I think Courter Simmons went on as Frankie for the first time today.
How many times have you seen JB? You seem to know everything. I want to see JB again on the return to SF....any tips on purchasing tix? e.g. rush? sundays?
The closing show in SF was the 20th time I saw the show. Unfortunately I can't really give you tips on rushing because the conditions for rushing might change come November. However general rule was show up about an 60 minutes before they went on sale and you may still have a chance of getting a ticket. Howerve, tickets are onsale for the next run, but if you can, get them at the box office to avoid all the ticketmaster service fees.
From most Bay Area cities, actually going to the box office via BART is cheaper than the Ticketmaster fees. ;)
