If Hollywood blockbusters are currently crippled by fear of the unknown, Broadway musicals – an ever-increasing number of them based on Hollywood blockbusters – are hardly less guilty. The jukebox musical is, if you will, the Great White Way's superhero reboot: their safest gambit, removing the greatest variable in a genre that has, after all, always been reliant on existing story material. Who needs composers when perfectly good popular discographies are there for the taking? “Jersey Boys” was a swift hit when it opened on Broadway in 2005; credit zesty staging or a tidily structured book if you will, but it's a show that owes its pull to one of the most buoyant American songbooks in Top 40 history. Those creamy harmonies, those tightly syncopated choruses, that unearthly falsetto: Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons hadn't the artistic reach of contemporaries like The Beatles, nor the cool strut of the Detroit acts to which »

Director Clint Eastwood takes a rare step into musical territory with this snappy adaptation of the stage smash charting the rise and fall of 60s pop sensations The Four Seasons. Original Broadway star John Lloyd Young reprises his role as lead singer Frankie Valli, with able backing from Michael Lomenda, Erich Bergen as songwriter Bob Gaudio, and Vincent Piazza as the group's reckless founder, Tommy DeVito. The dramatic ups and downs are accompanied by their greatest hits, including Sherry, Big Girls Don't Cry and Walk Like A Man, while Christopher Walken lends godfatherly support as benevolent mob boss Gyp DeCarlo. »
Washington (AP) — That trademark falsetto behind "Sherry," ''Big Girls Don't Cry" and other hits from 50 years ago will help celebrate July 4 on the National Mall this year as Frankie Valli headlines the "Capitol Fourth" show in Washington. Organizers on Monday were to announce their early plans for the show and fireworks, which draw hundreds of thousands of people to the National Mall each year. The event will be broadcast nationwide on PBS. Valli's voice propelled the success of The Four Seasons from their first national exposure in 1962 when they performed "Sherry" on TV's "American Bandstand." Some of their other hits include "Walk Like a Man," ''December 1963 (Oh What a Night)" and his solo hit "Grease." The group has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Now that familiar voice just turned 80 years old this month, and Valli is still touring. Looking back on decades in music, »

Jersey Boys, Clint Eastwood's biopic of 60s pop sensations The Four Seasons, adjusts its quiff, clears its throat and gets set to wail. The film, an adaptation of the hit Broadway show of the same name, follows The Four Seasons (those under 50: think One Direction with a mob connection and fewer perfumes) from their New Jersey roots to pop super-stardom.
The Four Seasons were famed for their tightly-drilled performances of hits like Big Girls Don't Cry and Walk Like a Man. But their slick veneer hid a tough back story. In the early days the group rubbed shoulders with the mob, sometimes robbing grocery stores to fund their music and often playing venues run by the Mafia.

We're pretty convinced that if you had replaced the Times Square Ball with Fergie, in this insane dress, you'd have the same full-on sparkle effect. We just can't understand why the new mom traded her typical rocker look for this Rubin Singer diva dress. We expect this bedazzled column gown on Mariah Carey, XTina, or even Beyoncé, but The Black Eyed Peas frontwoman more commonly dresses like Steven Tyler than the big belting divas! Thrilled as we are to see the "Big Girls Don't Cry" singer get a little glitzy, we're not in love with this design. The high mock collar literally makes it look like she doesn't have a neck! We know she already has her post-baby body back, yet the simple »
