Toe-tapping, theatre buffs, there is cause for celebration - the Tony award winning show, Jersey Boys, is back in Melbourne.
With an overwhelmingly cool and infectious soundtrack, Jersey Boys follows the success of the American boy band 'The Four Seasons' and their catapult to stardom. Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito and Nick Mass, devised a stylistic sound and look that will be remembered for generations to come.
Their story is fascinating, a far cry from the pretty boy image that holistically surrounds the boy band counterparts of the time, namely The Beatles and The Beach Boys. Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons came from working class backgrounds, with band member, Nick DeVito even leaving to serve a jail term! Hardly the stuff of a squeaky clean boy band image. Promotion for the band as consequence fell by the wayside, but their compelling story no longer remains a mystery.
