Jonas Elated After West End Debut
NICK JONAS' theatre dreams came true on Monday (21Jun10) after the pop star made his debut in London's famed West End.
The 17-year-old star of boy band the Jonas Brothers, who began his career as a child actor on Broadway, marked his first night playing Marius in Les Miserables at the Queen's Theatre in the British capital.
He was cheered on by his older siblings and bandmates, Kevin and Joe, who flew to the U.K. to watch their brother take to the stage in the musical.
On the morning of his first performance, Jonas wrote in a post on his Twitter.com page, "I woke up today and realised... Time flies very quickly... When you're living the dream."
And after his first curtain call, he added, "What a night. First show was amazing. Thanks to everyone for the good luck messages. Congrats (congratulations) to all my cast mates. Goodnight."
Jonas, who last performed on the New York stage in a 2003 revival of Les Miserables, has agreed to a three-week stint in the West End.
