Nick Jonas: “I Hope To Do More Theater”

Nick Jonas recently finished up his run on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and the 19-year-old hopes to return to the stage again.

Last week, Nick was honored at the 2012 Beacon Awards and he chatted with Backstage.com about the honor and hoping to return to Broadway.

What was your reaction when you found out that you were being honored tonight? I’m so thrilled to have had the chance to perform on Broadway, to be around so many talented people, and being honored with an award like this is a privilege. But I think that the award should really go to the people who have worked as hard as these people do every night.

What’s next for you? Do you want to do more work in theater? I hope to do more theater. Right now, the focus is on time off and enjoying that, doing some recording this summer, and then some other things coming up that we’ll talk about soon. But first it’s a nice season of some quiet time. As far as theater projects in the future, we’ll see.

Any advice you would give to someone trying to make it as an actor? Enjoy the ride. Every moment is valuable. The moments of success, the moments of working to find success — it’s all part of the journey. It’s all fun.
