Celebrated Broadway Actor Jarrod Spector to Visit Malibu

Tony Award nominee Jarrod Spector will bring his biographical show, Jukebox Life, to Pepperdine University's Smothers Theatre on Wednesday, March 7, at 8 PM.

Spector is a Broadway veteran, having performed the role of Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys for six years and Barry Mann in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical for three years. His latest project, Jukebox Life, is a high-energy show featuring the songs that have shaped his life.

Utilizing a combination of archival footage, music, and personal anecdotes, Jukebox Life draws from Spector’s album A Little Help From My Friends, recorded live at Manhattan’s 54 Below. Using the songs of Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, and more, Spector traces his life journey, from his humble beginnings in Philadelphia and becoming Junior Champion on Ed McMahon’s Star Search at age six, to auditioning in Los Angeles, to New York and the bright lights of Broadway.

Ticket prices range between $10 and $45. For additional information about the performance, and to purchase tickets, visit the Center for the Arts website.
