Perhaps his proudest moment as an interviewer came in 2021, when, while working as the director for Jersey Boys, Thomas orchestrated a series of interviews with each of the four original Jersey Boys (John Lloyd Young, Christian Hoff, Daniel Reichard, and J. Robert Spencer). The four interviews, in which the new Australian cast interviewed their original Broadway counterpart, was the first time that the actors had been engaged to do something like this since the original run in 2005. The conversations were broadcast live globally and viewed by fans of the jukebox musical, and its alumni all across the globe.
