JOHN LLOYD YOUNG (Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys)

The musical that sparked my love of theater:
A Chorus Line. I felt a perversely passionate attraction to the life of a struggling actor.

My first memory of this musical was:
First the movie, then the original cast recording on cassette tape, and then I saw the original long-running production on Broadway at the Shubert Theatre.

To this day, when I hear or see the show I…
...remember why I wanted to get into all of this in the first place.

The most memorable production I’ve seen of the musical is:
Broadway. It was a thrill for a young kid from a small town to see the famous musical I listened to over and over at its original theater in the heart of New York City.

The last time I listened to the cast recording was:
Right after we lost Marvin Hamlisch, with whom I was planning a series of concerts.

The most romantic song from the show is:
"What I Did For Love"
