Jersey Boys Philadelphia Tour Going Strong

Jersey Boys Second National Tour Kick start performances at Forrest Theatre from Dec 06, 2011 and play through Jan 14, 2012. When the national touring company of “Jersey Boys” came to Philadelphia’s Forrest Theatre last year, it broke all box office records — more than 140,000 people saw it during its run.

So when the producers launched the second national touring production of “Jersey Boys” they chose Philadelphia as its first stop. The show is now playing at the Forrest Theatre through Jan. 14. “Jersey Boys” tells the story of Frankie Valli and the 1960s pop singing group the Four Seasons

“Philadelphia was an important city in launching the career of the Four Seasons,” says Rick Elice, who wrote the book for “Jersey Boys” with Marshall Brickman. “When the group came to Philadelphia in 1962, the city embraced them so wholeheartedly that their lives were irreversibly changed. They sold more than 120,000 records and they were stars.

“What makes this story so compelling is that this group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became one of the biggest American pop music sensations. They wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds and sold 175 million records worldwide — all before they were 30.”

“Jersey Boys” also launched Elice’s career. The show was his first Broadway credit and it won the Tony, Olivier, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League and Grammy awards for Best Musical. He and Brickman also wrote the book for “The Addams Family,” now playing at Broadway’s Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. And Elice wrote the book for last year’s Off Broadway hit, “Peter and the Starcatcher,” a prequel to the story of Peter Pan. Elice is hoping that it will move to a Broadway theater.

When “Jersey Boys” first opened at the LaJolla Playhouse, no one was more surprised at its success than Elice, Brickman and its director Des McAnuff.

“We were shocked when we first did it in LaJolla,” recalls Elice. “On opening night, the audience loved it and this was Beach Boy-territory, not Four Seasons. Marshall and Des said this must be some mistake, but the second night response was the same.”

“Jersey Boys” opened on Broadway in 2005 and became a hit. Today there are six productions of “Jersey Boys” playing worldwide.

“This is a great show,” says Elice. “It has great music and all those Four Seasons hits. It delivers a great story and the audience has a great time. Bob Gaudio and Frankie took what was essentially a low art form and elevated it on to the stage. They did to music what Roy Lichtenstein did for pop art; they took blue collar music to regular people.”

Elice says while the story and the music remain the same, new technology has improved the staging. “We didn’t have LED technology when ‘Jersey Boys’ first opened in 2005. In those days all we had was a single projector to project the slides. The show has now been refitted and its staging and projections are much more dramatic and very high-tech.”

Jersey Boys at Forrest Theatre through Dec 12

Jersey Boys at Forrest Theatre through Dec. 12, follows the highs and lows of the band from the group’s founding to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction.

Jersey Boys is fantastically directed by Des McAnuff, who also directed the show on Broadway, with book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, music by Bob Gaudio and lyrics by Bob Crewe. The story is broken into four sections, Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter, and each band member narrates a season, adding his own spin to the events. Tommy DiVito, the band’s founding member and initial driving force, takes the first section. Tommy details how he, his brother Nick, and friend Nick Massi, were trying to make it as a threesome with little luck. Then Tommy discovered teenager Frankie Castelluccio, a boy with a “voice of an angel.” Tommy decides to bring Frankie into the fold, Nick Massi mentors him, and Frankie changes his name from Castelluccio to Valli. When Nick DiVito lands in prison for an extended visit, the group is forced to find a replacement. With the help of Joe Pesci, yes that Joe Pesci, the guys are introduced to song writer Bob Guadio. Despite reluctance from Tommy, Frankie invites Bob to join the group and history is made when Bob writes the band’s first hit, “Sherry.” Fame,

This fast-paced, dynamic show is full of action, drama and humor. A tremendous cast supports lively music that has the audience clapping and singing along. Joseph Leo Bwarie is excellent as Frankie Valli. With The Four Season’s large repertoire of hits and 33 songs in the production, the music has to be good. And it is. Jersey Boys is a show not to miss.

Jersey Boys runs at the Forrest Theatre, 1114 Walnut Street,
Philadelphia, PA 19107, through Dec. 12. Show times are Tuesday through Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 6:30 p.m. Matinees are Saturdays at 2 p.m. and Sundays at 1 p.m. There will be no performances on Thursday, Nov. 25 or Sunday, Nov. 28 and Dec. 12.
