Jersey Boys is working its way back to Rochester April 3-29th.  Join host Robert Hammond as he welcomes Brad Weinstock, who’s in the role of Frankie Valli, to Stage Notes

Weinstock is no stranger to Rochester.  Prior to Jersey Boys, he was here in the role of Boq in the first national Broadway tour of Wicked.  Additionally, he received rave reviews for his performance in the role of Tobias Ragg in Geva Theatre’s production of Sweeney Todd.  On his website, Robertonbroadway.com, Robert Hammond wrote in May 2008:   “Brad Weinstock, who played Tobias Ragg, is a genius on the stage. His performance was a highlight of the production. If there was anyone with a dry eye in the house after he sang “Not While I’m Around,” I’m certain ushers had to employ defibrillators to resuscitate them.”
