Saying goodbye is never easy, especially when it comes to a Jersey Boys cast member. You see them on stage, you meet with them outside the theatre, and you create lasting memories that keep you coming back for more. It doesn’t matter what part they play but what effect they have on you. Anyone who has seen Jenny Lee Stern in Jersey Boys would agree that she makes a huge impression on the audience with her unwavering talents and her addicting stage presence. Playing a character such as Mary Delgado, it is certain her performance won’t soon be forgotten. From her signature “Soap” to her heart-breaking “My Eyes Adored You,” it is no doubt Jenny Lee has been an outstanding part of this show. Her uniqueness brought alive other memorable characters as well, including but not limited to: an Angel, an infatuated waitress, a “not interested” music representative, a party girl, an opinionated club attendee, and a French pop singer. Each role she created was distinct from the other. Jenny Lee’s contribution to the Chicago cast made everyone’s theater-going experience exceedingly delightful and joyous. Beyond her acting, she showed great kindness and appreciation to fans all the time. Also during her time with Jersey Boys, she participated in every event benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS which illustrated her thoughtfulness and compassion. She’ll be deeply missed as a member of this company. Jenny Lee, we wish you all the best in your career and so much happiness in your future!

  6. Jenny – You are an incredibly gifted actress and an amazing person. I enjoyed every show I saw and your performance was as good the first time as it was the 6th time I saw the show. I will never forget how you took the time to give me, my daughter and her friends a tour backstage. I wish you the best and will look forward to seeing you in something great.
