Winner of the 2006 Tony for Best Musical, Jersey Boys follows the shifting fortunes of a Garden State quartet, starting from the humble working-class origins of its songsters all the way through their heyday as pop sensations Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. Told in four acts, the show kicks off with the discovery of the youthful Frankie Castelluccio, whose soaring falsetto and rocket-equipped pompadour would propel him to fame as the group's frontman. Subsequent acts cover the recruitment of talented balladeer Bob Gaudio, who penned many of the group's most famous songs, and the money problems and romantic indiscretions that eventually tore the group apart.
Four Seasons songs pepper the score, with such hits as "Sherry," "Walk Like a Man," and "Can't Take My Eyes Off You." Period costumes and slick dance moves effortlessly evoke the show’s 1960s milieu, transporting viewers back to a time when matching blazers were the mark of a successful band rather than of a posse of country-club ruffians.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
