Jeff Madden Among National Post’s Best Diarists

January 5th, 2010

Jeff Madden The National Post is featuring some of their favorite diary entries of 2009 from the entertainment world–including one from Toronto JERSEY BOYS’ Frankie Valli–Jeff Madden!

Jeff Madden, Actor, Jersey Boys–Week of April 27: Last night was a great show. The pacing was crisp, and the crowd was awesome. Jersey Boys plays great to a subdued and quiet crowd, but when an energetic, near-capacity crowd is digging it, laughing loudly, cheering wildly and going with us on the ride, it’s an unbelievable feeling. Before the show, I wasn’t feeling confident about how it might go for me personally. I hadn’t had much sleep, and rushed my preparations before the curtain. Playing Frankie Valli is an incredibly demanding role vocally, both singing and speaking. And then there’s the splits. But I nailed them last night. One of my best shows ever. The crazy falsetto stuff flew out of my mouth like I was ordering dinner. The chesty rocking stuff was strong and clear. I tell you, there’s nothing like it when you know you’re doing your best work.
