Jersey Boys Toronto Cast & Creative Team Say Goodbye in Their Own Words

August 5th, 2010

Celebrating two years on stage, more than one million customers, and three Dora Mavor Moore Awards, the phenomenal Toronto production of JERSEY BOYS will say “Bye, Bye Baby, Baby Goodbye” to the city they have called home, on Sunday, August 22, 2010, their second anniversary.

On, the Toronto Company bids farewell in their own words. Below is a preview:

Jeff Madden (Frankie Valli): “Playing Frankie Valli in JERSEY BOYS six days a week was certainly the most technically challenging and physically demanding work in my career to date, but this show was unquestionably the most rewarding work of my life. Seeing the audience leap up to give us a standing ovation every single show, hearing their stories at the stage door, and seeing so many return to watch our show again and again filled me with joy and a strong sense of purpose. We made a real difference. There may never be another show like it in Toronto, and I count myself lucky to have been a part of its magic.”

Michael Lomenda (Nick Massi): “As live theatre actors, our life’s work can feel, at times, intangible and unquantifiable, but, I’ve found, certain shows have the unmistakable ability to ‘change’ you and continue to affect you long after they close; the overwhelming sense of family and loyalty that resonates so vibrantly in the music and words of this show is something I’ll gladly take with me. I’ve felt so lucky to share the stage, both on and off, every night with this family; to jump on this electrifying JERSEY BOYS train and share the experience of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons with Toronto’s receptive audiences has been such an incredible gift for which I’m so grateful.”

Alison Smith, Francine: “Being a part of JERSEY BOYS and Dancap Productions has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career thus far. Working together as a team to share the brilliant production that is JERSEY BOYS has been truly enjoyable. Thank you Dancap for being such a hands-on company and getting to know each and every one of your company members. It’s been a wonderful journey portraying these real Jersey people and one I’ll always hold dear.”
