How is he not bored with playing Frankie Valli now?  Don't quite understand how performers can bear to stay in a show so long!

First of all I adore Ryan's Frankie so personally I'm happy he is staying on.

But to answer the question: It's a fantastic job (great money and it gives him the freedom to do other projects due to the amount of time off he gets at Jersey Boys). If I was him and I didn't have anything fantastic lined up I wouldn't leave either.

On top of that the work environment at Jersey Boys is great. I've soken to several cast members about this and everyone is always full of praise.

And although he sometimes gets accused of looking bored on stage I'm pretty sure he does still enjoy playing Frankie. I've seen the show a lot of times since 2008 and some of the best performances from Ryan I've seen were in 2012 and 2013. :)

I saw Ryan yesterday,and was amazed by his performance-one of the best I've seen him give. Delighted he is continuing the role of Frankie-he is simply the best!

It could be a once in a lifetime opportunity when a leading part in a WE musical comes up at the right time for a performer. It might not happen again. He is so right for the role. Plus of course it means employment :)

I'm saying it here and now: I'm sure this will be his last year. Definitely.

The producers have basically done everything they can to keep him in the London production. They probably wouldn't want to "lose" him to Broadway while the show is still running in the West End.

Just saw him tonight. He was amazing. It was my first time seeing Jersey Boys and whilst it certainly isn't the best thing I've ever seen, Ryan was sublime. He evidently loves the show -  every time the audience applauded you could just see the sheer delight on his face. I have never seen a performer get so much delight from the audience in anything I've seen.

I only first saw him at West End Live and he's sheer pleasure & enjoyment was palpable. It made me want to see JB & Ive seen it 6 times since. I've only seen Ryan once but he was fab as was John Lee who I also saw
