John Lloyd Young is back on Broadway as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys, the role that garnered him a 2006 Tony Award for Best Actor. The musical tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who became one of the biggest pop music sensations of all time. Penning hit songs like “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What A Night,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Working My Way Back To You,” the fab foursome sold 175 million records worldwide before they were 30 years old. To mark Young’s three-month return engagement, Broadway.com resident artist Justin ‘Squigs’ Robertson took a trip to the August Wilson Theatre and returned with a pitch perfect portrait of (top to bottom) Quinn VanAntwerp as Bob Gaudio, Matt Bogart as Nick Massi, Andy Karl as Tommy DeVito and Young as Valli. Take a look at Squigs' sketch, then head to the Great White Way to experience all four seasons in one memorable night!
About the Artist: With a desire to celebrate the magic of live theater and those who create it, and with a deep reverence for such touchstones as the work of Al Hirschfeld and the wall at Sardi’s, Squigs is happy and grateful to be among those carrying on the traditions where theater and caricature meet. He was born and raised in Oregon, lived in Los Angeles for quite a long time and now calls New York City his home. Click to e-mail Squigs. Photo by Matthew Murphy
