If you want to see Jersey Boys you'd better get your tickets TODAY, it's about to sell out!

Mary and I saw it last night, and it's really true big songs don't die!

Dramatic spectacle shows both the strength and character flaws of 4 New Jersey boys who decide to get out of the neighborhood, "Back then there were three ways to get out: join the military, get mobbed up, or become a star-- up and out!"

Strong emotions are on display from start to dramatic finish. "Sell 100 million records and see how you handle it." There is never one drowsey moment in the electric musical story.

Song after song, 27 in all, we're shown the 45 year career, how Frankie Vally became Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons with a brass section! From Sherry and Big Girls Don't Cry, to Working My Way Back to You and Rag Doll, each song is a brush stroke that paints the story: "You can't buy this, it's from the people."

Josh Franklin (Bob Gaudio), Joseph Leo Bwari (Frankie Valli), Steve Gouveia (Nick Massi) and Erik Bates (Tommy DeVito) are too good to be true.
