Why see Jersey Boys?

Oh, what a night!

How did a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks become one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time?

Jersey Boys is the smash-hit jukebox musical that gives us the true, sometimes gritty, and always spectacularly entertaining story of falsetto idol Franki Valli and The Four Seasons. The blue-collar boys in the shiny Lurex suits strode onto the scene in 1965, wowing the public for 20 years with hits such as "Big Girls Don't Cry","Oh What a Night", and "Walk Like a Man," "Beggin" and many more. But before fame and fortune, comes a difficult, and sometimes not entirely legal, journey to stardom.

Created by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, they wanted to create a traditional documentary-style story of the blue-collar stars and Jersey Boys came from interviews with the surviving members of the band, cemented by Tommy Devito's addition: "Don't listen to those guys. I'll tell you what really happened."

Since its debut in 2005, Jersey Boys has become a must-see, embedding itself in the American musical theater landscape, playing over 3,000 performances and winning 4 Tonys on Broadway and proving that the rags to riches, to rags again, story is an ever-enduring theme!

I'll tell you what really happened

Told in 4 parts, each member has an act to tell their side of the story, even if it clashes with the others. We get the real story of Franki Valli and the Four Seasons, from humble beginnings to the thrill superstardom and back again, via loan sharks, jail time, tense dealings with the Mob, and the strength of friendship, sound-tracked by the irresistibly recognizable hits that keep you coming back for more.

Did you know?

The Four Seasons sold over 175 million records worldwide, all before 30 years old!

WOW! Absolutely Amazing show all around!

It was well worth the wait after waiting 45 minutes for the show to start due to technical difficulties. I'm 45 and grew up on this music (because of my parents). The show was very fast-paced in it's storyline but it had to be, seeing as how there was so much to cover! Wow! What a story! The show made me feel like I was brought back to that time! I couldn't get over the talent of the entire cast but especially the men that played Frankie Valli & the Four Seasons~ Jon Hacker was outstanding! I wish I could see it all over again! Loved the music-loved the choreography-loved the makeup/costumes! Absolutely loved it all! Great job, cast and crew! ... Read more
