JERSEY BOYS is the story behind the music of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They sounded like no one had ever heard…and the radio just couldn’t get enough of it. But while their harmonies were spot on onstage, offstage it was a very different story – a story that made them an international sensation once again. The show features all of their hits, including “Sherry”, “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Oh What A Night”, “Walk Like A Man”, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You”, “Beggin ‘”, and “Coming back to you”.
