SHORT TAKES with JERSEY BOYS’ Sebastian Arcelus

Sebastian Arcelus plays the awesome role of Bob Gaudio in Broadway’s 2006 Tony Award winning smash hit musical JERSEY BOYS.  We thought it would be fun to get to know one of Broadway’s recognizable neighbors over at JERSEY BOYS. Sebastian had some fun things to say. See his responses from our questions.


1. Name the three TV Shows that are the highest priority on your DVR (or name three television shows on “your must” watch list)?

Well, sadly, our DVR is currently getting a breather…as LOST has finally come to an end. My wife and I have been glued to our TV for years now (mostly in awe…though occasionally screaming at it in frustration). But, all in all, we bought into it…and, despite the lack of sufficient answers, we admit to getting emotional there at the end…or was it the beginning…or when Locke found the hatch…or when the island disappeared?! AAAH! Those damn numbers!!!

Modern Family is a must. Crazy funny.


And I embarrassingly admit to recording “The Wheelhouse.” It’s a lame daily local sports show on SNY. Steph (Stephanie J. Block) has somehow trained herself to fall asleep to this one. Seriously.


2. Name the last three movies you watched at home)?

Last 3 we watched at home…um…

Man on Wire


The Fantastic Mr. Fox


You Don’t Mess with the Zohan


3. What website is your current online addiction?

Anything dealing with REAL ESTATE.

4. What’s the last book you purchased for yourself to read?

“Free for All: Joe Papp, the Public, and the Greatest Theater Story Ever Told”

written by Kenneth Turan and Joseph Papp.

I’m only 100 pages in, but I’m amazed. The NY theater history, the inspiring anecdotes, the reverence shown and the risks taken…it’s really something special.

5. Name an NYC attraction (shop, café, bar, museum, gallery, park) you would recommend to people who have just moved to the city.

Don’t even unpack your bags. Go to Citi Field. Be a METS fan! There are too many Yankee fans in NYC…

But while you’re there…ignore the surroundings…unless of course you need an auto body shop. In which case, you’re in luck. Oh, and don’t mind the name of the town. FLUSHING MEADOWS. It’s ironic and funny.

Then again, so is being a METS fan…trust me, I know.

6. Name the place you hope to visit when you go on your next vacation.

We hope to make a trip to URUGUAY sometime next year. I’ve got tons of family there, and PUNTA DEL ESTE specifically during the summer months (our winter) is a must…it’s like the French Riviera of the southern cone of South America.

7. Favorite show on Broadway right now, or theatrical event?

RED. I was somehow bizarrely able to attend a Tuesday night performance last month when those manhole covers blew up 52nd street and shut down our show for a couple of days…
