Dominic Scaglione Jr. and Joseph Leo Bwarie are working their way over to the Great White Way! Scaglione Jr. and Bwarie will assume the role of The Four Seasons frontman Frankie Valli in the Broadway cast of Jersey Boys beginning July 30. They are taking over for Tony winner John Lloyd Young, who will play his final performance on July 28 at the August Wilson Theatre.
Scaglione, who will play Frankie Valli six times a week, previously played the role on Broadway and in the Chicago and Las Vegas productions. Bwarie, who will be making his Broadway debut, played the legendary falsetto powerhouse across the country in the show's first national tour. He will perform the Wednesday and Saturday matinees.
The Tony-winning musical tells the story of how Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons went from being unknown New Jersey kids to international pop superstars. The show features over 30 hit songs, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”
In addition to Young, the current Broadway cast stars Andy Karl as Tommy DeVito, Matt Bogart as Nick Massi and Drew Gehling as Bob Gaudio.
