What do Joe Pesci, B & E’s, “Sherry” baby and slicked back Italian mobsters have in common? “Jersey Boys“.
The Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award-Winning Best Musical story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons takes the stage at Denver’s Buell Theatre July 17 through August 11, 2012. In the words of Oprah Winfrey,“Go see ‘Jersey Boys’. It’s just the best show…Steadman has seen it three times! The biggest musical act on Broadway.” And Ms. Winfrey is not kidding. With over 54 awards worldwide, record breaking box office numbers and consistently sitting pretty as one of the top weekly grossing shows on Broadway, “Jersey Boys” has literally knocked-off the competition.
Even the most gifted of writers couldn’t have come up with a more wildly impossible tale. From boys of the streets to hit-making men on the Billboard 100, Frankie Valley and the Four Seasons managed to sell 175 million records before they turned thirty years of age. The show itself includes 33 songs, five of which were #1 hits, and 11 songs that made the Billboard’s Top Ten. “Jersey Boys” captivates audiences young and old, stepping back in time to relive the magic.
Feast your eyes on golden boy Brad Weinstock as the lead (Frankie Valli), who not only fits the bill in appearance, but is Jersey bred, born and raised! Weinstock hits the quirky high notes in pure Valli fashion, with an impressive range and charming sensibility that will make you believe. Musical numbers such as “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man” and “Bye Bye Baby” are classics that you won’t be able to shake once leaving your seat.
First opening on Broadway in 2005, “Jersey Boys” has been seen by 15 million people to date. Its original cast album, produced by Bob Guadio of the Four Seasons, won the 2007 Grammy for Best Musical Show Album and is certified gold. Most recently, in 2010 it became the longest running show at the August Wilson Theatre in New York.
This is no joking matter my Denver Darlings! Get out and snag your tickets before it’s too late! Don’t miss the original pop icon himself, Frankie Valli live onstage at the Buell Theatre on September 19, 2012 singing all your favorites from “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” to “Grease.”
