Storyline

Jersey Boys is a musical biography of the Four Seasons-the rise, the tough times and personal clashes, and the ultimate triumph of a group of friends whose music became symbolic of a generation. Far from a mere tribute concert (though it does include numbers from the popular Four Seasons songbook), Jersey Boys gets to the heart of the relationships at the center of the group-with a special focus on frontman Frankie Valli, the small kid with the big falsetto. In addition to following the quartet's coming of age as performers, the core of the show is how an allegiance to a code of honor learned in the streets of their native New Jersey got them through a multitude of challenges: gambling debts, Mafia threats and family disasters. Jersey Boys is a glimpse at the people behind a sound that has managed to endure for over four decades in the hearts of the public. Written by Broadway.com

Goofs

Frankie Valli's infantile otosclerosis left him partially deaf until 1980 when he had corrective surgery to restore his hearing. Prior to that, he used hearing aids and became proficient at lip reading. The movie ignores this when they're in Ohio jail in the 1960s: Frankie is not wearing hearing aids, but responds to Tommy's comment without ever looking at him. See more »

Quotes

Frankie Valli: Like that bunny on TV, it just keeps going and going and going. Chasing the music. Trying to find our way home.

Oh, what a night...JB brought back so many memories
22 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I fell in love several times to most of these beautifully written songs with Lyrics that spell out the trysts of our times in the 70's. 'Who loves you pretty Baby' was one of my all time favs and when I heard the music again I fell in love with love all over again.

It's really cool how great music affects your heart and soul as though it transports our vivid memories right back into our body's cells. I felt the same type of excitement as I did when I first heard it...and first got laid to0 it.

Passion is passion is passion, and most of these songs were my anthems with my lovers. When I heard "My Eyes Adored You," I just sat there and quietly wept, thinking of the one I let get away...I wish I could say it to his face.
