Jye, Jye, Jye!!
I know its personal taste, but to me, out of the 5 Frankies I have seen, he is absolutely the best
*running away before I get killed and eaten by Ryan fans*

Seriously though, I do enjoy Scott's performance, he has improved in leaps and bounds since I first saw him,  and I really do want to see him again before he leaves, but it will always be Frasca!Frankie for me :D

Haha, I have such a soft spot for Ryan's Frankie but I'm completely open to other interpretations. I love seeing how other people approach certain scenes and numbers etc. I just think from seeing Scott perform on YT (and I know, I know, that doesn't hold a candle to seeing someone live) I just think Jye has much more Frankie-esque stage presence than he does.

Like some of you guys have alluded to, Ryan has a 24 day holiday (I think) in January so yes, it will be hard to catch him in the near future. I'm going to go again in January and will book for Jye; have never seen him before, or Scott to be fair, but the general murmur is that Jye does do a better job in many respects so I look forward to it :)

Thanks :) I was hoping it was Ryan. I'm down in London that weekend and have nothing planned for Sunday so was gonna try and get a ticket. I'd rather see Jye than Scott.

I saw this show for the first time this afternoon with my two daughters (age 5 and 8).  I went knowing nothing about Four Seasons and so watched it with wide eyes in amazement.

How can they sing so many songs in one show???? Don't they damage their vocal cords? Despite it beinhg a Sunday matinee, all the Four Seasons' memebers were played by the prinsipal cast, and they were just non-stop, especially Ryan.  And he does this 6 times a week?  Incredible.

My girls decalared it to be the best musical they had ever seen, and they have seen quite a few.  My favourites are still Les Miz and POTO, but I take my hat off to this show's cast.  Great job!

I went to see Jye as Frankie on Saturday afternoon and thought he was fantastic :) I couldn't see much of him as I was sat on the end of the front row and the corner of the stage was in the way, but he sang brilliantly. I was glad to be able to see him as Frankie before he leaves, as I've already seen Ryan and Scott.

This was probably the last time I'll go before cast change. I'm looking forward to seeing Jon Lee as Frankie, and Wayne Smith as Bob Crewe, and much as I like Stephen, it will be nice to see a new Bob as I've only ever seen Stephen.
