FRANKIE VALLI @ NEW JERSEY PERFORMING ARTS

Frankie Valli




Newark, New Jersey - New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) presents Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Spend an evening with American pop icon and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Frankie Valli when he brings an evening of his classic hits: “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Walk Like a Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” “Rag Doll,” “My Eyes Adored You,” and many more.



Oh, what a story. Frankie Valli, a Newarker who came to fame in 1962 as the lead singer of the Four Seasons, is hotter than ever in the 21st century. Thanks to the volcanic success of the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys, which chronicles the life and times of Frankie and his legendary group, their classic songs are all the rage all over again.



But please don’t say that Frankie is back. The truth is, he never went away. Sure, the majority of the 71 chart hits of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (including 40 in the Top 40, 19 in the Top 10 and eight No. 1s) came during the 1960s, but the music didn’t just disappear He has toured almost continuously since 1962, and his songs have been omnipresent in such movies as The Deer Hunter, Dirty Dancing and Mrs. Doubtfire. As many as 200 artists have done cover versions of Valli’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You,” from Nancy Wilson’s jazz treatment to Lauryn Hill’s hip-hop makeover.



Throughout his incredible career, Valli has sold well over 100 million records worldwide. One of the most distinctive voices in all of American music, his dazzling falsetto has become the stuff of rock’n’roll legend. For over five decades now, Valli and his group have been a top concert draw on stages coast-to-coast and around the world, thanks to the constant radio circulation of his songs as well as new re-mixes that find their way onto today’s charts.



“Frankie Valli's voice is a thing of wonder,” The Evening Standard wrote in a 2017 concert review. “… Every high note – and there are many – is hit with laser-guided precision. Oh, what a night, indeed!” Tickets to see Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons are Tickets on sale Friday, November 17, 2017 at 10 AM at NJPAC.org or 888.GO.NJPAC (888.466.5722) or by visiting the NJPAC Box Office.

CASTING ANNOUNCED FOR BROADWAY'S JERSEY BOYS

Jersey Boys





Full casting has been announced for Tony, Grammy and Olivier Award winning musical Jersey Boys, now in rehearsals for performances to begin Wednesday, November 22 at New York City’s New World Stages (340 West 50th Street) Stage 1.



As previously announced, Jersey Boys stars Aaron De Jesus as Frankie Valli, Nicolas Dromard as Tommy DeVito, Mark Edwards as Nick Massi and Cory Jeacoma as Bob Gaudio. The production also includes Stephen Cerf, Andrew Frace, Natalie Gallo, Jon Hacker, Christopher Messina, Austin Owen, John Rochette, Jenna Nicole Schoen, Rachel Schur, Dru Serkes.



Tickets are now on sale at the New World Stages box office or by visiting Telecharge.com. Group sales (ten or more) are available through Dodger Group Sales at 877-536-3437.



Jersey Boys is written by Marshall Brickman & Rick Elice, with music by Bob Gaudio, lyrics by Bob Crewe, directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo. The production includes Music Supervision, Vocal/Dance Arrangements & Incidental Music by Ron Melrose and Orchestrations by Steve Orich.



Jersey Boys is the behind-the-music story of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. They were just four guys from Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect on stage, off stage it was a very different story -- a story that has made them an international sensation all over again. The show features all their hits including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Oh What A Night,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” and “Working My Way Back To You.”



Jersey Boys opened in New York on November 6, 2005 and by the time it closed over 11 years later on January 15, 2017, it was the 12th longest running show in Broadway history, passing such original Broadway productions as 42nd Street, Grease, Fiddler on the Roof, and The Producers. Winning awards all over the world, Jersey Boys has been seen by over 25 million people.



The design and production team includes Klara Zieglerova (Scenic Design), Jess Goldstein (Costume Design), Howell Binkley (Lighting Design), Steve Canyon Kennedy (Sound Design), Michael Clark (Projection Design), Charles LaPointe (Wig & Hair Design), Steve Rankin (Fight Director), Richard Hester (Production Supervisor), John Miller (Music Coordinator), Tara Rubin Casting / Lindsay Levine, C.S.A.



Jersey Boys is produced at New World Stages by Dodger Theatricals, Joseph J. Grano, Kevin Kinsella, Pelican Group, Latitude Link, Tommy Mottola.
