SYNOPSISOften a musical like this rides the energy of hit songs and becomes merely a tribute concert. But that’s not the case with Jersey Boys, which tells the story of Fankie Valli and the Four Seasons as they struggle to make it, fight through personal problems and find themselves battling one another.The four boys contend with family tragedies, Mafia pressures, addictions, egos and more. But there’s a special code of honor that takes them through desperate times and connects them to one another. They survive by remembering their boyhood allegiances and calling upon the loyalty they learned growing up as kids in a close knit Jersey neighborhood.
