“A blend of vintage memories, which ignited the senses and brought back a time where youth had no limits.”
I knew the songs but I had no idea of the story behind the songs. The real life experiences of how Frankie Valli and the four seasons became one of the most popular musical groups in history.
The Jersey Boys playing now at Paris in Las Vegas is the story of Frankie Valli and the four seasons. This classy musical not only brought back wonderful memories of the some of the greatest songs that were ever written but between each song told a history of the group and each members personal struggles as well as good times. However, the sparkle, fame, fortune and the glamorous life that celebrities seem to have, often creates an untouchable status that seems far removed from reality. As Fans, it is often difficult to relate to them on a personal level. Yet, this musical brought the audience inside the lives of each group member and as their story unfolded, tears, joys and awe allowed the audience to create an instant bond with the members of the group.
The cast was remarkable in being able to bring their musical talents by way of voices, instruments and harmony to the stage along with their superb acting ability to present to the audience the story behind the story.
The audience was mesmerized by the exquisite rendition of the number one hits that Frankie Valli and the Four seasons performed.
The #1 hits came flying off the stage such as:
Oh what a night
Big girls don’t cry
Walk like a man
My eyes adored you
Let’s hang on
Working my way back to you girl
I can’t take my eyes off of you
As the musical was wrapping up, the audience started dancing in the isles.
A new meaning was born with regards to the songs, the story and real life experiences of the one of the greatest musical groups of all time – Frankie Valli and the Four seasons.
