Based on the rollicking, real life story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons — a band that became one of the biggest selling groups of all time — ‘Jersey Boys’ is a show not to be missed. Frankie Valli, founding member Tommy DeVito, bass vocalist Nick Massi and songwriter Bob Gaudio were four blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks who went from scoundrels to pop sensations.
Blending that crass, crude Jersey humour with poignant moments, ‘Jersey Boys’ takes us on a journey that soars and saddens. The four leads — Graham Foote as Frankie, Declan Egan in his professional theatre debut as Gaudio, Glaston Toft as Nick Massi and Anthony Harken as volatile DeVito — were all superb. Hilarious, witty, talented and the perfect embodiment of the characters, the boys became The Four Seasons on stage. Featuring all their hits including ‘Sherry’, ‘Big Girls Don't Cry’, ‘Walk Like A Man’, ‘Oh What A Night’ and ‘Can't Take My Eyes Off You’, this show took you back to a golden age where men in matching suits was still cool and singing along was expected.
‘Jersey Boys’ is playing at the Lyric Theatre QPAC.
