Broadway.com’s Kathy Henderson has a fabulous interview with JERSEY BOYS Broadway’s Matt Bogart, who plays Nick Massi. Matt chats about the many roles he has played in his career–from tough guys, to lovers, to fighters, and more. Here’s a preview:
Role That Makes Me Feel Like Rock Star Patrick Swayze: â€œEvery time I come out of the stage door at Jersey Boys, someone says, â€˜Has anyone ever told you that you look like Patrick Swayze?â€™ I sign two more autographs down the line, and someone else says, â€˜Know who you look like? Patrick Swayze!â€™ I take it as a complimentâ€”I think itâ€™s the suits we wear. Nick [Massi] is the most ambiguous [of the Four Seasons], and Iâ€™ve been given room to explore and take the role to the next step. In the four and a half years Iâ€™ve been here, my wife [actress Jessica Boevers Bogart] and I have had two kids, I sent her to grad school at NYU for theater education, and we bought and renovated an apartment. Those are some big accomplishments, and Iâ€™m very grateful to have had a long run in a show thatâ€™s so satisfying to perform and that audiences love so much.â€
