Quotable Quotes about Jersey Boys from Valli, Young & Elice

December 27th, 2005

In’s 2005 Wrap-Up of Quotable Quotes, Frankie Valli, John Lloyd Young, and Rick Elice give their thoughts on Jersey Boys:

“This has been a dream in the making for a long time, so to actually see it being performed on a Broadway stage is—don’t really have any words to tell you what the feeling is like—I’m just over the top. Maybe I’m really dreaming this whole thing.” —Pop music icon Frankie Valli on Jersey Boys, the show that tells his story with the Four Seasons

“It is being a rock star. There are moments in the show when you are performing a song for an audience the same way that the character you’re playing would have, so the disconnect between actor and character is no longer there.” —John Lloyd Young on playing Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys

We did stipulate that our theater had to at least be facing west. Sort of like, you want your synagogues to be facing east toward Jerusalem; we wanted to be facing west toward Newark.” —Jersey Boys co-librettist Rick Elice on paying respect to the Garden State

  1. Jersey Boys is the best on broadway. John Lloyd Young is such a talent .He will be around for a long time. Christian Hoff, Daniel Reichard and J. Robert Spencer also do a great job. The production is perfect.I tell everyone I know to see Jersey Boys. I get the same reaction every time, Fantastic, Terrific I want to go again. Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice did a great job. John Lloyd Young is Frankie Valli!
