Jersey Boys: Making theatre history in New Zealand with actress Geena Hutton

Jersey Boys: Making theatre history in New Zealand with actress Geena Hutton
am i right what yeah yeah yeah that's just like my american like teehee you know i don't know how long have you been working on dialects and all that oh that's really interesting um so i started um i've basically done theater and performing my whole life basically i started in primary school um so i was about nine or ten years old and i started taking after school acting classes and i kind of just started then like from day dot i mean living in new

zealand

most scripts and musicals you know they're based in america or europe so already immediately we learned to do scripts in american and english accents because that's just where they're based so i've never had like a dialect coach um like personally like privately i've just kind of learned from working and doing shows and learning from other people so but i've never had um yeah like lessons per se but in

jersey

boys

we did have um a dialect coach come in and just kind of work on our

jersey

accents and yeah that was really insightful so there i i think something people have a misconception of is let's say if you're not american people think oh you have to you're dropping the new the let's say in your case the new

zealand

accent and then going into another accent but really you're just putting on another dialect i know for me for years i was i i it was just a few years ago i recently realized that hugh laurie was actually british so he's doing this amazing...
jersey boys making theatre history in new zealand with actress geena hutton
amazing american accent as dr house and so i i used to talk about oh yeah he's dropping his british accent but no he's just changing he's just doing an american accent yeah like you're not dropping anything you're just transitioning yeah it feels so natural to me to do like an american accent i've just yeah again i've done it since i started theater and i've just been doing it ever since so when i turn it on it's so natural i forget i'm doing it until i'm off the stage i feel like i'm very lucky to have a new

zealand

accent because i feel like it's very hard to get if you're not like australian or new

zealand

you know what i mean like i find it very not not very often i'm able to i'm able to pick up basically if someone's not from you know down under yeah yeah very hard to do it yeah i've been trying did you actually nail it so i've been working on my australian accent it kind of slips into new

zealand

sometimes but it's really all about getting the inflection you know new

zealand

like we have a lot of american tv like friends is really popular here like disney channel nickelodeon like we all grew up watching those tv shows so already americans right in front of you um and i grew up watching that and um

jersey

boys

yeah like well we worked with an american so that was really helpful we weren't doing hate and balance yeah how is it how did you say it we said milanis i hope that's right...
jersey boys making theatre history in new zealand with actress geena hutton

jersey

boys

people say milanese so many different

jersey

boys

people say milanis we don't know because it might be a joke yeah i think it's my life that's so funny it was so it was so it was so amazing to see that yeah he he was going to play frankie because i mean yeah we all know we all know him from the second national okay so let's let let's just say there are bootlegs okay bootlegs exist yes and there so there are many bootlegs of hayden and so um it was really really cool that he got to do the show again in such a brand new place this one and this was a brand new production right yes yeah so it was not a dodgers theatrical production it was it was gnt right yeah no it was a new

zealand

uh production company that put it on yeah okay yeah so could you walk us through your audition process and how you found out about the new production yeah yeah so um oh where do i begin well you had gun shows with amici with amici which then became gmt right yeah so i'll start with that so um the year before in 2020 um this was the year of covert so wow 2012 um 2020 what a time um i did the production of mary poppins with amici at the time which is now gnt so um we saw those pictures we saw those pictures of pointless point of view picture we made it into broadway.com which was insane we were the biggest show in the world at the time and i i still can't even comprehend that we are so fortunate in new

zealand

...
jersey boys making theatre history in new zealand with actress geena hutton
to be in a position where we are still able to put on large-scale musicals and productions um because we've contained coverts so well you know um we had a lockdown for a few months um and that also pushed back our production of mary poppins we were supposed to be in april which is when craziness happened so we had a two-month lockdown and then after that we kind of had like another month or so of just kind of getting back into like regular everyday life and then we had another month to kind of get mary poppins back to where it was supposed to be and then we did the show in september october people don't come here to see theater you know um usually people leave to see theater we leave to study and we leave to you know continue our dreams elsewhere um so for there to be a professional large-scale musical touring new

zealand

was wow wow crazy i was just wondering and what a show what a show yes i was actually 19 when i auditioned because my birthday's in december and i auditioned in november so i was a still a teenager when i auditioned amazing thank you so yeah and what was really what was really funny um was that the theater that we did mary poppins in which is the beautiful civic

theatre

um you said you saw the photos it's absolutely stunning it's like a 2 300 seat theater it's oh it's beautiful the architecture is stunning um very fortunate to have done it in that beautiful theater and the auditions for

jersey

boys

were around the corner in this...
other little theater so i i don't know if i remember this correctly but i think i had a two show mary poppins day and i did a show did my audition and then i came back and did another mary poppins show something crazy like that um and at the time i was actually auditioning for schools in australia for this year so i was i was actually going to study in australia this year i got into the diploma course in nida which is in sydney and then i also got into the diploma course in wapa which is in perth and these are musical theater schools these are musical theater courses yeah yeah yeah so i plan to go over there and i kind of auditioned for

jersey

i auditioned yeah i auditioned for

jersey

boys

just kind of in case i i didn't get in but it was more just because i wasn't super set on moving to australia during this time and i think i kind of knew that in my heart i kind of wanted to stay and really do this show so i auditioned for the show and then i actually found out pretty quickly i think i was one of the first few people to find out and i found out um yeah i think actually before my birthday like a week before my birthday i found out which was really cool and they told me that i got francine yes i auditioned for francine and then i got francine so i was super happy with that and yeah there was actually a few other people from the mary poppins cast that auditioned as well that also got in that was really cool and yeah the the process for me was really fun i obviously...
knew the creative team because i worked with them amir poppin so it was really chill and the new

zealand

musical

theatre

scene is super small so i knew about 80 of the people that were in the audition like everyone else did so again it was really chill really fun um the audition dance we did was obviously boyfriend's back which was really fun um destiny is our awesome choreographer she did such a wonderful job and then grant me so obviously he was our director and zach johns was our musical director and i've worked with them all before so again really just a really fun um process and then had a call back and all the

boys

came in their suits they asked them to wear like suit jackets for the callbacks they could practice all of this and that was really cool but yeah that was the process it was just really fun and yeah had you seen

jersey

boys

before i mean how did you hear how did you how did it come in to your existence my existence so it taught to new

zealand

i think like 2012 2011 it was like the australian tour i didn't actually know of it then um but i did know of the musical i wasn't like super familiar with the storyline but of course i knew their songs who doesn't yeah and um i basically just did like as much research as i could before i auditioned like i usually do i watch the movie and i watch like as much of like bootlegs online as i could i listened to music and everything and that was kind of my first like introduction to watching the show was...
just prepping for the audition and um christchurch which is um a town a city i should say in the south island of new

zealand

was actually doing that production um in november to january but this was a dollar right this was a different new

zealand

company yeah yeah i remember that yeah so i i flew down to christchurch from auckland and i watched that show and the cool thing was that i found that i got into the show the day before i flew down so i was watching the show knowing that i was going to do it um in other old cities auckland that yeah just feels so amazing it was it was such a beautiful feeling to sit there being like wow i'm going to be able to share this story and do this musical and it was also a great thing because i could watch my track as well i could be like yes so yeah it was great it was yeah it was really great and we also did use a few of those people from that cast in our cast as well francine is hardly in the show and that already intrigues me because her her bit is so powerful right she's on for one scene and she has that one moment and i was like wow i want to like i want to have that moment and see how much i can put into that character in that one scene and i wonder if you want to do that that's the kind of a pure like

actress

you know you really want to have that challenge yeah like i mean they they they tell you all the time in in like you know growing up in community theater and theater school you know there's no small part it's...
only a small actor oh you know absolutely and it's it's i mean people that oh that's something they tell you just to be just so that you can be okay with being in the ensemble and maybe there's an element of truth to that but at the same time it's like how many how many more hits you think you're gonna how many more how many cameos of people like uh celebrity cameos are so much more memorable exactly yeah keyword is memorable and um i think francine's definitely a memorable character and she she drives out too you know like at the end like she's the reason why frankie she's definitely the idea also that drives act two also yeah not only her character but like the idea of her character and that that person almost it's almost like frankie has put her on a pedestal by the end you know that summer is in

jersey

monologue um plus also um plus switch like you know but you know when he's talking to lorraine he's like you know my daughter you know four octave range she got it gets up on the table i can it's like she do you watch doctor who i've watched a few episodes but i'm not like you know i don't know so there there's an idea that the doctor at one point will fly so high will fly to ever we'll fly the highest we ever flew but will fall farther than and i feel like francine the way he pictured her in his mind like the idea of francine is different than who francine really was and of course strictly we're...
talking about francine valley in the show the character the character francine in the show like she like he he made her in his mind fly higher which then for him made her fall as low as she could metaphorically speaking yeah and the way you staged it the way you guys staged it was francine on for fallen angel yes oh wow yes could you walk us through the the phone call scene yeah and what what your staging was like and how you were directed and yeah what what how you got into character for that for that scene yeah i'd love to so this the set was pretty true to the original you know has the spiral staircase then it has the other staircase um hayden said it was a bit different in places but like the general consensus was basically the same um so stage left is where they had mary's kitchen table and hayden with the phone and everything in frankie and i was on stage right under the spiral staircase and the phone was connected to the set and the phone obviously you could pull the phone there was a chord connecting it and i could just kind of step out but close to the front um because the phone was quite far back but um i came into the scene um during his monologue as he's traveling over so that i could be established before the lights come up and it kind of it kind of seamlessly transitions yeah that's cool so as he's if this is the audience and this is the stage um as he's traveling i kind of walked on into my space as he kind of arrived so that when the...
lights came up on both of us we were both there which was quite cool um and obviously the phone rings and i'm there and i'm standing and he answers the phone um and when i first started this i played it a lot of different ways um again it's it's a scene with so many types of interpretation like most scenes um but grant gave me a lot of freedom he just said find what works with you and what chemistry you can connect with um with hayden you know so i think i first tried it a bit softer almost like i was apologetic um in a way and that kind of had a nice feel to it it just didn't make her seem like a bad person um but then i i talked to hayden through the scene quite a bit like he he called me and he he gave me some of his feedback and i kind of gave some of mine and i actually i have a notes of all the things he said and kind of what we talked about so basically we were talking about how you know this is probably not the first time francine has called home i'm i think that's a given right she's probably called many times so it's a patent behavior so she does this quite a lot um and then obviously the big question is why is she calling you know is she calling for money is she calling because she wants to be picked up is she calling because something bad's happened is she calling because she just wants to talk to her mom like just wants to hear a mum's voice so there's so many questions there with where i could go and already then...
each of those different questions is a completely different path right right um so then we talked about um how when i was doing it a bit softer it made it seem like that there was a severe lack of trauma going on like i feel like if i'd heightened it which i did in the end i did make it a bit more like the stakes were higher it just kind of added that like the traumatic kind of energy um and then oh yeah so then we also talked about how she could also possibly be like maybe drunk or high at the time like while she's on the phone and that could also just add like a super kind of uncomfortable feeling as well in the audience you know because it's so different you know he's had this big concert you know and everything and he's you know everything's really fun and happy and then there's just like the scene where his daughter comes on and she's you know drunk and high basically and she's you know it's just i just feel like it adds a lot of grit and everything 100 and then it came we sort of ended the conversation with talking more about how just more of the relationship between um frankie and francine and how there's an underlying idea that she knows that he loves her but she kind of more than just she just pushes it away like yeah or almost that like she doesn't think that he loves him that he loves her sorry but he does and he's just trying to be like the dad like no you should be home you know you can't be doing this but...
he's like oh but maybe i should be nice and you know i need to show her that i love her and the fact that he didn't do that almost drove her to be like this because she wanted to impress her father right you know as you were saying she made her seem you know so great and so high that she had such a further away to fall basically and then kind of as the show goes on um he talks about how he starts to call her and kind of gain a better relationship but obviously in the end it just it wasn't enough and the damage had already been done and yeah it ended in tragedy wow okay well i i love hearing how especially with the

jersey

girls like how the girls really do drive the show and they are the anchors and the pillars of the show you know if it wasn't yeah he had to get past like when he was younger with mary in order for him to to move on and try to be more serious about the band and then lorraine just to get over all the things being on the road yeah and like to get out of the neighborhood right you know right yeah so it's um but but the scene and then she's just like it could give me a break you know it's like that's yeah like how did you deliver that line what what i actually thought was so funny is that line can i swear on here am i allowed to swear oh please yes great okay she says give me a break you've probably already realized this but mary actually says that line before my eyes adore you right so i think when like the castle i never put...
that yes right so we linked that we're like oh my god so she obviously learns from her mother and that's probably why she's also so like you know you know it's

jersey

right her mom's super like oh this you you know attitude right attitude so francine's got an attitude so um i think i kind of i played with it every night i mean you know i don't think i ever kept the scene the exact same the feeling was there but you know i like to play around with it um i don't really know i i definitely delivered it differently every night um i think i kind of just made like an arc like i just worked up to it so that whole that whole line as what is it i know i know you're working you're slaving away on the road so you can give us give us a break you know and i kind of just arched it i think so that that was like the point and then i kind of brought it back after that line um because obviously i i knew that i'd and that gives me a reason to hang up you know the fact that he's not giving me the he's not giving the phone i've said this i've like reached my peak i've said you just like give me a break now give like give me give the phone to my mom and he's still going on like okay well he's obviously not going to do that hang up like there's no point in continuing this which is basically okay yeah so was there a certain music cue that you had to hit at a certain time like if you kept like talking over each other i think...
that's a vamp i think that i can't give you anything but love that's playing under it that's one of the vamps and it just yes it just stops and then it's the dude yeah yeah yeah i think it is my favorite musical section in the entire show i think i think a funny thing about that scene is that when we did it so auckland was our first um little season and then wellington was our second half of the season and the theater in wellington was a lot smaller um the sight lines were quite bad so i had to i was a lot further on stage for the phone scene which was really funny because i didn't account for it i think it was i it was probably one of the first shows we did in wellington about how far i'd have to go back to hang up the phone so i'd like to say and i was in the moment and i turned around to like hang up the phone and i was like oh my god no i have to like run um i actually broke the phone in one of the one of the shows um when i hang it up like really angrily i broke the clip so oh i like held the phone and then i like angrily threw it on the floor because i couldn't hang it up on anything cause i broke it and that was funny i wanted to comment something on what you said earlier about how how francine was possibly high or drunk um when she made the phone call in the movie he's standing by her and then she doesn't hang up the phone he hangs up the phone for her yeah which adds a huge sense of danger yeah that's a completely...
different completely different thing and i wonder in in like a newer production if they would if they would add that like sort of on-stage character like no it's very good wow yeah that's really interesting yeah but do you know of any specific changes between um like the original script from season four into what you all had for your production like anything everything taken out or added or changed just like like from the original yeah like any line changes yeah i think our bob crew added a line because it wasn't a script i don't know if it was from the original and it wasn't in the script and he added it in um but you probably know um it was after it's after that they're doing in there in the recording studio um the backup sessions yeah their backup session's correct okay so um such and such everyone's sung trans is gone and bob cruz like no no stop stop stop and bob gaudio comes up and says something i'm quite like blunt and brutal to crew and he says well baby scorpio shows his sting is that in the show oh no no okay i think he added that yeah okay yeah he's like oh whoa whoa baby scorpio i think if i'm if i'm if i'm assuming correctly it's bob says well maybe you just need to find a new group you know because the line after that is like oh um you all feel this way yes correct i do i do i'm with them yeah yeah i love that yeah see because i think something comes before that he says okay then listen to this...
either you give us a date when you're gonna record us four songs that you promised we're going down the hall to make a deal with people who keep their word you know your problem gentlemen you've got an identity crisis maybe if you find yourselves a name and a sound little bobby here we know who he's writing for then bob says you know what maybe you need to find yourself another group um i think he's like whoa whoa whoa baby scorpio shows his sting and then he comes oh i see you all feel this way wow yeah yeah yo that's a really fun moment that's awesome well thank you for that addition it's so fun seriously yes i can't think of anything else that was added but i'm sure there was some little things i'm sure yeah did grant make it a point to say like okay we're gonna try something different than the original um what was his overall approach to directing the show i think his his biggest thing was just keeping the whole essence of the show you know why fix what's not broken right you know the show's most of the stuff was really natural like he just kind of said let's just let's just do it and let's just you know let's just try it and you know um in a way that was really grey just to kind of play and yeah it was just natural you know because all the scenes just fit really well and just the chemistry was already there and then he just kind of tweaked things you know like oh it doesn't work like that...
let's just have you walking from back here things like that but the scenes themselves were really just like a team effort and how everything fit together when it was on broadway all you had to do was go across the because most of their most of their audience members when they first first started were new

jersey

people you know people who yeah frankie who knew crew who knew gaudiya who knew nick these are guys who grew up in the same neighborhood in the same street so they were like okay we know it can play on broadway but what how do we know it's going to be the same thing around around the us in l.a and like and they made some changes how did the local audiences in new

zealand

first of all this is your first professional the first professional musical theater production touring touring so how did the audience react to this material that's so so american-centric

jersey

-centric italian and how how did you guys come together to really drive that home and keep that legacy going yeah no it landed super well in new

zealand

it was um it was talked about all over the country we received such great feedback and incredible reviews um yeah the audiences got up and danced with us at the end like it was just so like almost every night we had a standing ovation you know but by act 2 everyone's really into the show you know it opens with big man in town which is super fun we had sparkly jackets um invited in the audience it kind of warmed into it a bit more um but yeah they...
just loved it like it was it was better than i could have expected and yeah i don't think it was any different than it could have been overseas it was just as loved and just as appreciated and supported here we had some dancing in the audience we definitely had some people jump up and come forward and dance so that was like hey that was great yeah that's so cool i love it yeah i feel like that might get distracting though for actors like did you ever worry if they'll like hop on stage with you no um but actually now that you bring that up um no like all of the dancing and like the big standing ovations and the partying at the end was never a distraction because we just partied with them you know we just had like a really fun time in the bows but there was actually one show um where there was an incident happening happening in the audience um and i think a patron just had just got quite sick and they had to like bring some of the stuff and and but they they didn't stop the show and that was totally fine that was the front of house's call and the person is fine by the way we got um contact with them absolutely fine um they just had i think it was like a heart attack during the show oh oh my god but but that they said they were fine um yeah and it was during the show and it was all during like oh what a night and the big three concert numbers like sherry like it was awesome they must have been just so overwhelmed they were just so overwhelmed with all of this...
magic going on but yeah it was happening in like the the top circle and there was just a big crowd and all the doors were open so the light was coming in um so that was like quite distracting for the guys they were saying but again like we were just so happy that they were okay and they wanted us to keep going obviously but no like none of the dancing ever distracted us it was just we're good oh my gosh well i'm not gonna hear that that they're okay and yes yes me too they kept coming back to your show we saw in your story we had some person you come 12 times we had this one 12 times i know between us between me and gia we have seen the show almost 25 times tour broadway um new uh off broadway um and i mean we've seen the movie collectively 175 times no it's so we we get it no matter where you are you want to go back and sing it and like you were saying before like the script really does speak for itself everything flows and it's so rare that you have a show like that yeah it's just so like the the the theme of the show everyone remembers it how they need to you know that's just everything like i mean every single day how many times i know how many times how do you hear are you here how many times do have you heard someone tell a story different times you know depending on how they're feeling that day you know you i like gia has i i'm sure you know has heard has heard my stories a million billion times you know i'm sure one day...
i'll tell it differently you know just how we're feeling in the moment so like everyone remembers it how they need to and we talk about how rick and martial rick alice and marshall brickman they wrote some of these lines that the characters said that you don't really realize how much of an impact they have until i mean also another one of the themes of the show family is everything think about the context in which frankie said family that is cheating on his wife he said that to me that was my character we always find that so funny because i because i was um i sang boyfriends back i was the lead vocalist in that song so i was the girl i was like then why get married and then you know he'd say family is everything we're so we're so happy that you guys had to you guys got to have

jersey

boys

out there in such an amazing crazy time you know i remember telling the team that i was so lucky to be able to watch it in christchurch um because i i don't know what i would have done if i hadn't been able to see it because i would just want to watch it right it was it was so engaging like even just the transitions like so quick going like they're just so exciting to watch and like the music's great and there's just never a dull moment i was never not drawn into the story um yes i'm happy that i saw it because i would have been waiting to watch it from the other side yes i would be too i i always need some kind of foundation before you see...
something yeah what's your tracking though like how did that work in rehearsals trying to figure out exactly what you were doing yeah so um our the original cast i think is only supposed to have 15 is that correct on stage oh um okay so there's there's there's three girls four guys um um crew norm norm barry belson so that's 10 jip that's 11. hank's character hey oh no no hank okay so i think hank yeah joe that's already so it's about 15 yeah 15. yeah so we had 18. we had three extra people which um would have been the offstage swings but they were on stage so we actually have four girls on stage which meant that we worked as so our off off-stage swing was an on-stage swing actually so we had the three girls maryland and francine then we had out where jesse jesse lawrence who was owl on stage off stage swing so um all of our um tracks were actually completely different like i didn't do all my francine tracks so um i was the church the church girl which is supposed to be lorraine i believe right um yes um we had the offstage swing doing boyfriends back we didn't have the merry character doing that so that was different oh okay well that leaves right time to change yeah it does yes it was it was all different yeah so the only thing that was like the same was obviously our characters and then francine and me also being the lead in the boyfriend's back song but everything else was different it wasn't too book um because again we...
had that extra girl on and then we also had the two extra uh that yeah that the two extra guys on so then the

boys

tracks like the hank tracks and the um jep who's supposed to be i believe the um the court the judge yes it was some production so in on broadway jib was also the judge but on tour and off-broadway right now not on the cruise bob crew is the judge yeah well bob kerr was the judge um yeah yeah um but it was it was pretty um a lot easier it seems like like more more streamlined maybe yeah yeah it wasn't as like it wasn't as streamlined basically we kind of added oh you know there's people who are actually okay it wasn't streamlined so but it was it was um more so it was it left room for more people i also i also have this if you wanted to see it it's the program i'll quickly show you some stuff so this is our program it's kind of shiny and there's gnt on the back we have our um so in new
