“Jersey Boys”

This Broadway hit is on tour through the nation and portrays the story of early days of Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Massi. This is the story of how a group of blue collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations of all time. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide — all before they were 30. The show features their hit songs including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Rag Doll,” “Oh, What a Night” and “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”
