Nick Jonas: HOW TO SUCCEED on Broadway!

7 May

Nick Jonas and Ken backstage.

Recently I was lucky enough to revisit “How to Succeed in Business (Without Really Trying)” (see my Daniel Radcliffe & Cast post here).  This time, the part of “J. Pierrepont Finch” has been taken over by the terrifically-talented Nick Jonas of “Jonas Brothers” fame.

Nick as “J. Pierrepont Finch”

Nick is no stranger to Broadway, having first performed in A CHRISTMAS CAROL when he was 8-years old (following-up with performances in ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, BEAUTY & THE BEAST and LES MIZ),  made his West End debut in 2010 performing the role of “Marius” in LES MIZ and in 2011 played “Link Larkin” in a Hollywood Bowl production of HAIRSPRAY.

Here are some video highlights of my interview with the youngest (19) of the wildly successful “Jonas Bros.” where Nick discusses topics ranging from his early training, advice and the age-appropriateness of his character, what it’s like to replace Daniel Radcliffe and his passion for singing and what’s next for the Jonas Brothers!  I even got Nick’s goose a bit when I suggested that the “Finch” character was a bit of a likable creep (I know, I know…Finch isn’t that bad except for the half-truth and deception stuff…but that’s why we love him!).  Nick was a pro and charming as we all hoped he’d be, and after seeing his performance, he proved to sing the part better than any “Finch”  I had previously seen (including myself ).

    I wonder what Finch would look like as a red head. . .wait. . .I think I might know. :-) Great interview and it’s interesting to see how much his voice has changed since Les Mis 25. He’s really taking this seriously and I think he’ll be a force to be reckoned with soon.

    I love love love Nick Jonas and his voice is just getting better and better along with him growing up :D Anyone that has not seen the show should before it’s discontinued, is it already? I don’t know! you’ll fall i love with Finch, Rosemary and all the others <3 I know I have..

    Also any Jonas fan should do themselves a huge favor and buy the recording.. When you have seen the show, it's amazing to be able to sit at home and listen to some of the amazing music from it and just try to remember the show :) If you don't know where then just go to amazon and buy it! :)
