John Lloyd Young, who earned a Tony Award for Best Lead Acting in a Musical for his performance as Frankie Valli in Broadway’s “Jersey Boys,” is bringing what he calls his “Jukebox Hero” show to Canyon Santa Clarita.
“I’m calling the show ‘Jukebox Hero,’ which is a reference to the kind of set that I’m doing,” Young said in a recent interview, “but also a ‘Wink, wink at the most jukebox musical of all time,” he added, referring to “Jersey Boys.”
After wowing Broadway crowds with his performance as Frankie Valli, a role he then reprised for the silver screen, he’s touring the country, coming to the SCV fresh off of several shows at Feinstein’s 54 Below in New York.
It’s a unique opportunity for Santa Clarita Valley fans of classic crooning, to hear a voice that’s also performed at world-renowned venues such as White House, Carnegie Hall and Radio City Music Hall, to name a few, when he comes to town Sunday, June 9.
Fans can likely expect to hear a live version of some of the tracks he currently features on his website, JohnLloydYoung.com — classics like “Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me,” “Unchained Melody” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” among others.
