Jersey Boys at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre
Don’t forget that the shores of Jersey have produced a lot more than Snooki and her spawn. Ever heard the songs “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You”, or “Walk Like a Man”? They were mega-hits in the mid-’60s heyday of Frankie Valli’s doo-wop sensations The Four Seasons. And the Broadway musical Jersey Boys tells the story of their fast rise from hard-knocks blue-collar life in Newark to multimillion-record-selling teen heartthrobs, with plenty of four-part harmony poured on. Former Stratford Festival artistic director Des McAnuff directs this Tony- and Grammy-winner, which runs at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre from Wednesday (September 5) to September 23.
