John Lloyd Young’s Interview with

May 17th, 2006

Check out’s Robert Diamond’s Q&A session with Tony nominee John Lloyd Young.

Here’s a preview of what JLY had to say:

Q: And how has the journey of JERSEY BOYS been for you?

A: Well, it is extremely intimidating to think that it was a little more than a year ago when I got the offer to do it. At the time, I was an actor who was doing plays primarily and some small musicals, but certainly not a major musical, and certainly I never had the lead in a major musical! A year ago, I was in a place where I was 2 months into rigorous training to just attempt to sing this score, not to mention that I was looking to star in it! It’s a show where I had to carry a great deal of it, and had to work with a company that had already done it at La Jolla, so I was going to be the new kid. I was petrified a year ago! I was working hard, and not letting my fear cripple me, but I was scared.
