Iowa Native Kevin Worley Plays Multiple Roles in Jersey Boys National Tour

July 5th, 2010

Kevin WorleyThe JERSEY BOYS national tour production begins playing Wednesday at the Civic Center of Greater Des Moines. Radio Iowa has an interview with JERSEY BOYS national tour cast member Kevin Worley, an Iowa native who plays multiple roles in the megahit musical.

The thirty-one-year-old actor, who is originally from Cedar Rapids, plays one of the original members of the Four Seasons, though “Handsome” Hank Majewski’s time with the band is brief. “I also play probably eight or nine other characters, from cops to accountants to production assistants to bass players, guitar players, mandolin players,” Worley says. “I keep myself very busy throughout the show.”

He says it’s sometimes a challenge to keep all of his characters straight. “Each one of those little parts has its own little scene and it’s kinda’ fun,” Worley says. “It moves pretty quickly. I always joke, when I talk to people at the show, that the only way I know what’s going on is by which costume they throw on me backstage.”
