Jarrod Spector: Jukebox Life


For six years he played ‘Frankie Valli’ in Jersey Boys.

For three years he played ‘Barry Mann’ in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical (receiving a Tony nomination).

For countless additional hours he participated in workshops of other jukebox and biographical shows no one has ever heard of.

These experiences have led Jarrod Spector to be called “Mr. Jukebox Musical” (primarily by his mother), but the eclectic soundtrack of his life began long before that title was appropriate. From his time crooning Bobby Darin hits en route to becoming Junior Champion on Ed McMahon’s Star Search at age 6, music has framed and underscored the story of Jarrod’s often-humbling journey from his childhood home in Philadelphia to the bright lights of Broadway. With a red hot seven piece band along with unrivaled and often-embarrassing childhood archival footage, Jukebox Life traces Jarrod’s journey from Philly to Los Angeles to New York, through some terrible (and eventually less terrible) auditions, to getting the role and, best of all, to getting the girl.

The Poole Family Broadway Series at AUPAC is generously sponsored by Mary Jane and Thomas Poole.
