As the curtain goes down on 2010, Broadway.com is looking ahead to the new year. We’ve asked the brightest stars on Broadway to reflect on their personal highlights from the past year and to reveal their hopes for 2011. Check out what they had to say, and have a Happy New Year!
JARROD SPECTOR (Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys)
Highlight of 2010: “Billy Joel (my ‘idol,’ if I were to choose only one) attended Jersey Boys a few months back and was nice enough to come backstage and meet the cast. He immediately asked me, “How do you sing like that?” I thought he was just being kind, but he was truly asking the question. We talked about it, and those five minutes when I had the privilege to ‘jaw’ with Billy Joel about the art of singing were some of the most memorable of my year.”
Resolution for 2011: “There are definitely things I can and will do to help the planet and my fellow humans. But in stark contrast to that kind of selflessness, my resolution this year is to stop apologizing for the things I want and, instead, to aggressively go after them.”
