Nick Jonas is going to play Frankie Valli in a streaming version of the musical JERSEY BOYS. Graham King who produced the hit Queen biopic BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY is working on the special in which Jonas will be singing his way through the Four Season’s back catalogue as the show traces Frankie and the band’s career from New Jersey to global stardom.
Talking about the new version of the show Frankie revealed that he wasn’t sure the original stage musical would be a success.
“I remember seeing it for the first time in La Jolla near San Diego in California, and the response was so incredible, I couldn’t believe it, and when it went to Broadway, I never would have dreamed in a million years that it would last 10 or 11 years the way it did. And it’s always exciting because something new is always going on. Jersey Boys has been on cruise ships, has been in almost every country that you can possibly think of, and now it’s being filmed for television and Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers is playing Frankie, so I’m really excited about that.”
