David Gordon of Theatermania.com has posted a marvelous Q&A with Peter Gregus, who has been playing Bob Crewe since day one in the La Jolla Playhouse run of JERSEY BOYS through the incredible 11-year run on Broadway. Check out a sneak peek of the interview with this wonderful actor below:
What is your favorite line that you get to say?
It’s in the car scene when I’m one of the gangsters with Frankie Valli when he’s a kid. I get to say “piece of f***ing sh*t a**hole f***ing moron.” It just rolls right off your tongue, and it’s even better when there are kids in the front row. That’s when I really lay into it. They gotta learn sometime.
Who is the coolest person that came to see your show? (You can’t say your family!)
James Gandolfini. He came back to see it over and over again, and every time he came, he would bring four or five or six army vets or marine vets who had just gotten back from the Middle East. He was genuinely concerned with the health and welfare of our war vets. It was so touching.
