Love at First Listen: Jersey Boys’ Nick Cosgrove on the First Time He Heard a Frankie Valli Song

'Performing these songs for some who are hearing it for the first time is a privilege.'

Jersey Boys star Nick Cosgrove is currently crooning for audiences at the Ohio Theatre as Four Seasons frontman Frankie Valli through September 29. “Getting to perform ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You’ is the most special part of the show for me,” Cosgrove said. “It was the first Frankie Valli song I heard as a kid, and I fell in love with his music. Having the honor of performing that song each night is an absolute dream come true.”

Looking back on his Jersey Boys debut at Chicago's Bank of America Theater, Cosgrove said, “It was a very overwhelming night. I saw Jersey Boys for the first time when I was 17 at that very theater. To be performing my dream role six years later in the same theater where I was originally inspired—it’s a moment I will cherish for as long as I live.”

Joining Cosgrove on stage as the Four Seasons are Nicolas Dromard as Tommy DeVito, Brandon Andrus as Nick Massi and Jason Kappus as Bob Gaudio. Jersey Boys tells the story of how the iconic pop group went from being unknown New Jersey kids to international pop superstars.

Cosgrove sees his Jersey Boys dream role as a chance to give back with the music that has inspired him. “I remind myself before every show that there is at least one person in the audience who has never even heard of Frankie Valli, and this is my chance to tell his story to them for the first time. Performing these songs is a privilege. ”
