John Lloyd Young was born in Sacramento, California on July 4, 1975, and spent his childhood in Bellevue, Nebraska, where his acting ambitions began in the late1980s.  First appearing in The Wizard of Oz at the Emmy Gifford Children’s Theatre and in A Christmas Carol at the Omaha Community Playhouse, it was in Omaha where Young decided showbiz would be his life. After earning a liberal arts degree at Brown University in Rhode Island, he headed for New York.    In 2006, he won the Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical for his role as Frankie Valli in Broadway’s Jersey Boys.
