We are happy to hear that Nick Jonas, one third of global boyband Jonas Brothers and currently star of Les Miserables at the Queen’s Theatre, is feeling the strain of doing 8 shows a week.
Talking this morning on GMTV (see video below) the 17 year old singer, who is playing Marius in Les Mis for three weeks, said: “It is tiring, especially when we have two shows a day, but it is all good fun”.
In the interview he also talk about how he has bonded with the cast and is overjoyed at getting back to his theatrical roots, “I am having an excellent time, it’s definitely different to what I do with my brothers, the singing is a different style”.
“I have been doing this kind of thing since I was eight. I did A Christmas Carol first, then Annie Get Your Gun and Beauty and the Beast. Then I did Les Mis for my final show on Broadway, I was Gavroche then and I have come back about seven years later to play Marius. It was a role that I dreamed about playing for a long time. It is such an honour.”
It’s always nice to hear a pop star talk about how hard it is to be in a musical – a nice tribute to the actors and actresses who tread the boards night after night in the West End.
