October 21st, 2010

Ryan Jesse Broadway.com’s Kathy Henderson has a fun feature on JERSEY BOYS Broadway’s new Bob Gaudio, Ryan Jesse!

Age: 25

Hometown: Gilbert, Arizona

Currently: Making his Broadway debut in Jersey Boys as Bob Gaudio, the composer whose hit songs catapulted the Four Seasons to superstardom.

Theatrical Family: “It’s in my blood,” Jesse says of the stage, sharing stories of a happy childhood spent observing his theater professor parents put on shows at Chandler-Gilbert Community College in Arizona. “They built the theater program from the ground up,” he says proudly, “so from the age of four, I’d sit in the back during rehearsals doing my homework. If they needed extras for a church scene or something, I would stand onstage.” His own ambitions ignited when he first set foot in the local junior high school’s drama classroom, which was filled with props and set pieces. “I thought to myself, ‘There can’t be anything in the world more exciting and fun than this. If there’s any possible way people would pay you to do this, why would anybody want to do anything else?’”
