For six years, Jarrod Spector played “Frankie Valli” in Jersey Boys. For three years, he played “Barry Mann” in Beautiful. Long before his 1,500 “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You’s” and 900 “We Gotta Get Outta This Place’s,” and even before becoming Junior Champion on Ed McMahon’s Star Search at age six, music underscored the story of Jarrod’s often humbling journey to the bright lights of Broadway.

With a red-hot seven-piece band and often embarrassing childhood videos, Jukebox Life traces Jarrod’s journey through some terrible – and eventually less terrible – auditions (“One Song Glory”), to getting the role (“Since I Don’t Have You”) and best of all, to getting the girl (“Shiksa Goddess”).
