Recently, Examiner.com’s Tom Alvarez spoke by phone with JB first national tour’s Bob Gaudio, Miles Jacoby, who was in Detroit, where the show was playing prior to its Indianapolis engagement. Here’s a preview of this terrific interview with the young actor.

Tell me about your character, Bob Gaudio. How do you like playing him?

I feel like I get to be myself every night on stage to some extent. Bob was this young one-hit wonder who wrote “Short Shorts” with a group of friends when he was 15. When he was 17 he met these tough guys from Jersey and started writing with them, and before he knew it they were writing huge hits like “Sherry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” etc. Here was this brilliant mind — this high school dropout who knew the music business, and had toured with Motown artists and other incredible influences — and he knew how to write an incredible song. He was also just a very smart guy who was driven professionally and knew what he wanted. Experiencing my own success at an early age, I identify strongly with him and am thankful I get to walk in his shoes every night. Bob is such an incredible person and continues to be this huge producer who has created some incredible music. He’s still very connected with Frankie, and it’s really one of the most amazing partnerships of all time.
