Yesterday I went to the matinee showing of the musical, The Jersey Boys. I was never a Frankie Valli fan, but my wife (SWM [with an emphasis on the "M"]BO) insisted on going. So, with wife and daughters in tow we went. And we came away suitably impressed. I was amazed how well the songs sounded when played live. But what blew me away was the way the play was orchestrated, choreographed and generally run. Great acting, great sets, albeit a bit sparse. But that's not what it was about. While most of the songs that FV and the 4 Seasons had hits with were from the 50s and 60s, I would guarantee that most of us here would be familiar with them in one way or another. The show runs for 2hrs and 40mins with a 20 min intermission. So, do yourselves a favor and see if you can get tickets to the show. If nothing else you'll get to see the history of one of the US's most influential bands unfold in front of you with some great music to listen to, to boot.
