Oh Frankie Valli, You're Just Too Good Be True!

Johnllyod CAN'T TAKE MY EYES OFF YOU. I wanna hold you so much! Where were you all my life? I might just as well be in love with the real Frankie Valli, only he's 70 years old now. BUT I am currently in love with his music and John Lloyd Young- 2006' Tony Awards Best Actor in a Broadway Musical.

JERSEY BOYS is Broadway's newest No.1 musical hit and twentysomething John Lloyd Young is Broadway's newest musical sensation! To say that the show is phenomenal is simply an understatement! There are no words to describe it. The performers are superb, memorable and perfect in their roles! The story is touching and inspiring! Clever and unbelievable! No question it won Best Musical, Best Lighting Design, Best Actor and Best Featured Actor in the Tony Awards, the highest coveted award in Theater. It is what Oscars is in the movies.


Jersey Boys is the Story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. This group along with the Beach Boys were perhaps the only American groups to have survived the British Invasion of The Beatles in 1964. They sold over 100 million records worldwide making them the most successful boy band in rock and roll history.

In 1990, The Four Seasons are inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I know you don't know him and his group if you were born after the 70's. I didn't know him or the group either. But you'd be surprised as I am to know that majority of his songs are probably songs you love and listen to all the time. "Oh What a Night," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like a Man," "Dawn (Go Away)," "Stay," "Let's Hang On to What We've Got,""Bye Bye baby," "C'mon Marianne," "Working My Way Back To You," "Who Loves You," "Fallen Angel," "Sherry," "Grease," "Can't Take My Eyes Off You," "My Eyes Adored You" are just among his and the group's hits! All those songs powered by a great storyline and magnificent cast make it one of the best Broadway shows to watch. It's the music industry meeting the Sopranos and Goodfellas or the Godfather, put comedy and drama into it, then you have a sure winner!


The Jersey Boys (2005 Original Broadway Cast) CAST RECORDING is a must-have cd to add to your collection even if you haven't seen the show! But hey, if you happen to be in New York and have only one show to watch, make it this one! ©
