John Lloyd Younga??is aa??classic. He delivers a song with an immediacy and originality that makes even long-established hits feel like they're unfolding in front of you for the very first time. He is a Tony and Grammy Award winner, originated the role of Frankie Valli in Broadway's Tony Award-winning Best Musical and international hit, Jersey Boys. As Valli, Young garnered unprecedented accolades from New York and national media, including one of the most exciting The New York Times reviews ever written for an actor making a Broadway debut. He went on to win the Lead Actor Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Theatre World Awards, becoming the only American actor in history to win all four leading actor awards for a Broadway debut. Young sings lead vocals on the Platinum, Grammy Award-winning Jersey Boys: Original Cast Album. He made his West End debut, playing the role at London's Piccadilly Theatre; later re-creating his award-winning Broadway turn onscreen for director Clint Eastwood in Warner Brothers' film adaptation of Jersey Boys.
Young played to sold-out crowds of 17,000-plus as Marius in Les Misérables at the Hollywood Bowl, was the first-ever guest star invited to appear on Fox-TV's Golden Globe and Emmy-winning hit, Glee; guest starred opposite Michael Chiklis on CBS' drama, Vegas; and played the title role in the family comedy film Oy Vey! My Son Is Gay! opposite Lainie Kazan. He made his debut at New York's prestigious and famous Cafe Carlyle. Reviewing his performance, The New York Times wrote that Young "has a disciplined one-in-a-million high tenor shading into falsetto that he can direct through the stratosphere." In addition, he has played Carnegie Hall, The White House, Lincoln Center, New Year's Eve in Times Square, Radio City Music Hall, the New York City Marathon, San Francisco's Feinstein's at the Nikko, Yankee Stadium, Dodgers Stadium, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, McCarter Theatre Center, New York's Town Hall, the Hollywood Bowl and the National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Marvin Hamlisch.
