OSU Lantern Interviews JB National Tour Cast Members Denise Payne & Kara Tremel!

August 26th, 2011

In an interview in The Lantern, reporter Katie Howard chats with cast members Denise Payne and Kara Tremel, who said they have enjoyed the opportunity to share the story of The Four Seasons in Columbus.

“Every city has a personality,” Payne said. “In Columbus, you get the young, college kids mixed with the adults who are reliving the 60s.”

Tremel said the mixed age group at shows is a testament to the Four Seasons’ music.

The songs from “Jersey Boys” have been passed through generations, an accomplishment which Tremel said is a credit to the writers of classic music.

“The Jersey Boys wrote classic songs,” Tremel said. “You can’t get that today. It’s like songs from VH1 meet ‘The Sopranos.’”

Payne credits the success of this Tony Award-winning musical to its ability to pull people from all ages bring them together to travel back in time.

“The passion of theatre is an escape,” Payne said. “We all need that two hours to take us back to our memories and ‘Jersey Boys’ does that for anyone who experiences the story.”
