LOCAL lad Jon Boydon has taken a lead role in one of the West End’s smash-hit musical.
The 33-year-old singer is starring in Jersey Boys - the story of how Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons shot to fame.
“I’m a Birmingham boy, as far removed from a New Jersey gangster as it is possible to be!” said Jon. “I’m even blonde, so I’m fighting against type. I’ve had to dye my hair darker and get a tan.”
Born in Great Barr, the performer grew up in Solihull and has previously appeared in hit shows like Jesus Christ Superstar and The Rocky Horror Show.
