Plattsburgh is celebrating the success of native son John Lloyd Young who won a Tony Award and then made a trip to the White House for a command performance earlier this week. Young was honored last Sunday night with Broadway’s highest award — the Tony for best lead actor in a musical — for his powerful performance as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys. The show also won best musical. Young graduated from Plattsburgh High School in 1993, and he told Todd Moe about growing up in the North Country.
