The lights of Broadway are shining on former Chandler-Gilbert Community College student Ryan Jesse.
Jesse, 25, recently made his Broadway debut in the role of Bob Gaudio in the Broadway cast of Jersey Boys, the Tony, Olivier, and Grammy Award-winning smash hit musical.
Jersey Boys, which opened on Broadway to critical acclaim in November 2005, is the story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time.
Jesse says he feels blessed to be performing on Broadway just three years after completing his musical theater degree from the University of Northern Colorado.
“It’s great and it’s amazing to be where I never thought possible,” Jesse said. “To be at a place in my life where my childhood dreams are realized is incredible, and it’s an honor to get to do this every night.”
