Jersey Boys Come to Boise

Tuesday, Dec. 2 - Sunday, Dec. 7: Broadway 'jukebox musical' at the Morrison Center

by

When "Big Girls Don't Cry" hit the airwaves in 1962, it went as high on the Billboard charts as the lead singer's voice--spending several weeks at No. 1. Frankie Valli's uncanny falsetto was certainly a factor in The Four Seasons' decades-long popularity, but this was no novelty act. Jersey Boys is the story of how four young men from the Garden State who, despite stints in prison and dealings with loan sharks, became squeaky-clean pop icons. The Tony Award-winning "jukebox musical" includes some of the Four Seasons' biggest hits--like "Sherry" and "December 1963 (Oh, What A Night)"--and was adapted to the big screen in 2014 with Clint Eastwood as director.
