This week we're off to LA to speak to Jye Frasca!

After growing up in Australia, Jye trained in London and had an incredible West End career. He appeared in West Side Story, Mamma Mia, Cats, Anything Goes, Love’s Labour Lost, We Will Rock You, Thrill Me and Mary Poppins. He was also part of the original West End casts of Wicked and Jersey Boys.

After moving to America, Jye took over as Frankie Valli in the Las Vegas production of Jersey Boys before making his Broadway debut as Boq in Wicked for the musical's 15th anniversary!

In this episode, Jye discusses his career from making his West End debut as a swing in West Side Story to being a principal on Broadway. He discusses how Idina Menzel's advice helped him conquer his performance as Frankie Valli, what it was like to start afresh when he moved to America and why he hopes to one day return to the London stage.
