John Lloyd Young Shares His Tony Memories on Broadway.com!

When a Broadway debut yields a Best Actor Tony Award, it’s obvious that the performer and role are perfectly matched. Such was the case when John Lloyd Young burst onto the Broadway scene as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys. In bringing the Four Seasons icon to life, Young gave a magnetic star turn (featuring an impeccable falsetto) and was rewarded with a Tony in what he acknowledges was stiff competition. Young looked back on his winning night for Broadway.com.

Which year did you win your first Tony?
2006

For which role and show?
Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys

Where were the awards held?
Radio City Music Hall

Who hosted?
“60 stars of stage and screen”

What did you wear?
Our director, Des McAnuff, hooked us up with his favorite designer, Ted Baker.

Who was sitting next to you?
My girlfriend and Jersey Boys co-star Daniel Reichard

Who did you think would win your category?
I had just won three other major awards, so I knew I had a great shot. But my fellow nominees, especially Harry Connick, Jr. [for The Pajama Game] and Michael Cerveris [Sweeney Todd], had me very worried.
