Admit it Big Girls Dont Cry flashed through your mind the last time you watched Jillian reduce a Biggest Loser contestant to tears. Then perhaps you hummed Walk Like a Man as another portly fellow hung his huge head for spending too little time on the treadmill. For those musical moments you can thank The Four Seasons, one of Americas most successful pop groups. Their tale is told in Jersey Boys, a musical about Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio, Tommy DeVito, and Nick Massi, four blue-collar Italian-Americans from guess where. Laugh all you want at their slicked back hair, high-pitched crooning, and Joy-zee accents; these guys wrote their own hit songs and sold 175 million records worldwide before they turned thirty.
Yeah, Sherry, even you can sing along Thursday through Sunday at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, at 201 SW Fifth Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Show times vary and tickets cost $25 and up. Call 954-462-0222, or visit browardcenter.org.
