The JERSEY BOYS national tour will be playing Birmingham, Alabama from September 10-15 at BJCC Concert Hall. Alec Harvey of has a terrific feature with original Four Seasons member Bob Gaudio and the actor who plays him in the hit musical, Jason Kappus. Check out a sneak peek below:

Starring as Gaudio is Jason Kappus, who has been on the road with the show (with his wife and dog in tow) since 2011.

“The audition process was probably the most intimidating part for me, because I hadn’t met Bob, yet, and he’s there for all the final callbacks for the show,” Kappus recalls. “My last audition I was there trying to be this person who was sitting five feet away on the other side of the table.”

Turns out Gaudio couldn’t have cared less.

“They told me the role that Bob cares about least in the show is actually himself,” Kappus says. “It’s his wife, Judy, you really have to impress.”

Gaudio agrees.

“In my opinion, even though it’s the story of four guys, it’s a supporting role,” the songwriter says. “It’s Frankie’s show. I’m not saying the actors portraying me shouldn’t be great, but I’ve never had a view of what I was all about. The person to ask that would be Frankie.”
