A reader to PureDWTS and Pure Derek Hough named Lily has written a guest blog for us on her experience of meeting Mark Ballas and seeing him in Broadway’s “Jersey Boys”. Let’s just say, Mark blew her away. You can read her fun and sweet story below including how she met BC Jean as well. She also sent us some fun photos. Thanks Lily! You rock!
I was very excited to hear that Mark Ballas was going to make his Broadway debut in Jersey Boys! His opening night was scheduled for October 18th. And I already had a conflict because Josh Groban was also making his Broadway debut in Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. I bought these tickets in May 2016!
So I planned to go to Mark’s 2nd show, on October 19th matinee! I was excited to secure front row tickets to the show. I had already seen Jersey Boys before, and I really enjoyed the show.
But Mark blew me away with his performance!!! I was very surprised with his falsetto, and he nailed all of the songs!!! I had chills when he sang “My Eyes Adored You” !!! “Sherry”, “Walk Like a Man”, “oh, what a Night”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Working My Way Back to You”, so many hits! Oh course, there were the dance moves!!!!
After the show, I waited by stage door. Everyone came out and signed, and took pictures and selfies. Mark is on vocal rest, so he wasn’t able to talk alot, But he signed and took pictures with everyone! How awesome. I was wearing my Alexander Jean t-shirt. I met a mother and daughter who knew Mark, so they were able to ask to see BC Jean, so I was able to talk to BC Jean as well. She said she remembered me from the tour! Aww how sweet!
