Ryan Jesse: From UNC to Jersey Boys Broadway!

December 3rd, 2010

Ryan JesseGreeley Tribune reporter Amber Baillie has a terrific interview with JERSEY BOYS Broadway’s Bob Gaudio, Ryan Jesse! Here’s a preview:

A 2007 University of Northern Colorado graduate’s big break came in October, in the form of a Broadway debut.

Twenty-five-year old Ryan Jesse even resembles his Broadway character in “Jersey Boys”: He’s tall, talented and always ready to leap at his next career opportunity.

Jesse appears as band member Bob Gaudio in the Tony award-winning show “Jersey Boys,” based on the 1960s rock ‘n’ roll group the Four Seasons.

After earning a musical theatre degree, performing around the world in an Asian production of “Cinderella” and making his Broadway premiere in Jersey Boys on Oct. 12, the 25-year old Arizona native can’t help but wonder, what’s next? He hopes to explore higher roles in the profession and be on the other side of the casting table one day.

“Whether that’s directing or being a casting director, I’m not sure,” Jesse said in a phone interview. “I love what I’m doing now, I wouldn’t change it for the world, but I don’t see myself doing it forever.”
