Update on JLY

August 8th, 2006

John Lloyd Young reports on his blog that he needed to leave the show mid-act on Saturday afternoon, because his falsetto was not working properly. The week prior, he had fought a sinus infection with antibiotics. Antibiotics kill beneficial bacteria in the system and can cause candida. So, there was a buildup on his vocal chords–that he is now getting rid of–with the help of his voice doctor.

The great news is this: there is no physical damage to JLY’s voice!

Jersey Boys Blog wishes JLY a speedy recovery!


  1. What an absolute trooper. Get well JLY! x

  2. JLY is an incredible performer. Too bad this infection has been keeping him from being in the show lately. I hope he gets well soon.

    He also deserves a lot of credit for trying to do the show but also stepping aside when he realized he was having problems. What a trouper, indeed!
