John Lloyd Young

Sharmilla Ganesan has a wonderful interview with John Lloyd Young, who talks about the rigours of playing Frankie Valli and much more. Here’s a sneak peek below:

Young’s favorite scene to perform, he says, is when The Four Seasons first come together officially as a band to sing Sherry.

“That is very exciting, especially because you can also feel the audience’s excitement of seeing us as a band for the first time. In contrast, my other favorite scene is when the band falls apart, and Frankie sings Can’t Take My Eyes Off You solo; it’s a very bittersweet moment for him.”

Almost eight years since he first took on the role of Valli, Young continues to feel blessed for having had the opportunity to do so.

“Because I was playing him for the first time, it was very special to me. It was phenomenal to be breathing new life into the material.”
