As the award winning musical “Jersey Boys” continues its run in the Great White Way, actor Sebastian Arcelus exits the musical for another musical, “Elf”, and leaves the role of Bob Gaudio to Broadway newbie Ryan Jesse. Arcelus takes his final bow in the musical’s Broadway run on October 10, while Jesse steps in on the 12th.
Jesse is no stranger to the story of “Jesse Boys”, the story of four menial workers who with their musical ingenuity became the pop sensations of the ‘60s, the Four Seasons. The actor has participated in the national tour of the musical before landing the role that would pave the way for his Broadway debut. His other credits include “Cinderella” where he joined the international tour and worked alongside critically acclaimed stage actress Lea Salonga.
