JERSEY BOYS national tour will begin performances tonight through Sunday, March 1st in Gainesville at the Curtis M. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Here’s a sneak peek in Ocala.com with reflections from cast member Drew Seeley!

“For people that don’t like musicals, this one is probably the one for you,” said Drew Seeley, who plays Bob Gaudio, one of the four original members of the Four Seasons.

The group rose to fame in 1962 with its No. 1 Billboard hit “Sherry,” which highlighted Valli’s distinct falsetto and began the Four Seasons’ ascent to fame.

“It’s like an episode of ‘The Sopranos’ with music,” Seeley said. But the story also is relatable and, “like any great story, it’s about family one way or another,” Seeley said.

Dan Sullivan–From Rhode Island to Jersey Boys in Las Vegas

February 22nd, 2015
Dan Sullivan

Dan Sullivan

EastBayRI.com reporter Christy Nadalin has a terrific feature story on Rhode Island native Dan Sullivan, JERSEY BOYS Las Vegas’s (and formerly JB Toronto) Tommy DeVito. Below is a preview:

Las Vegas is a long way from home, both his first family home (his parents Jeannine and Philip Mongeau live in North Kingstown) and his current one in New York City with his wife Cara, an Emmy-nominated hairstylist and wigmaker with Saturday Night Live, and his two stepchildren. Sullivan flies home weekly for family time, on Mondays, the one day that “Jersey Boys” is dark.

Yet, in many ways, he’s very much at home. Though he has only been with the Las Vegas production for a few months, he has played Tommy DeVito since 2008, beginning with a company in Toronto. While the darker elements of Devito’s character and the mafia connections are a long way from his Newport-and-South county childhood, spending six years in the man’s shoes has given Sullivan (whose blond Irish hair is colored and nightly combed into a perfect duck’s derriere) an intimate understanding, and deep respect, for his character.

Sad to report the passing of another great ’60s pop music hitmaker, Lesley Gore. Back in 1967, Ms. Gore teamed up with legendary producer Bob Crewe for the single, “California Nights.”

Rest in peace, Ms. Lesley Gore.

Jersey Boys Rocks at RBC Theatre in London!

February 12th, 2015

Rave review for JERSEY BOYS in London from James Reaney in St. Thomas Journal:

At its best, Jersey Boys soars like a Frankie Valli high note and talks like a Goodfella.

The touring production of the Tony Award-winning musical is a complex and rewarding take on The Four Seasons saga, with plenty of revved up renditions of the New Jersey hitmakers’ pop smashes to please fans waiting for Rag Doll during all its multi-viewpoint Rashomon.

This admirer thought he knew The Four Seasons. Not so.

It was the songs that are known. The men who sang and created and strutted them are fascinating and much deeper subjects.

The songs are strong. There are terrific blasts from the 1960s such as Sherry and more sophisticated classics from the next decade like Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.

On stage, Milandes leads the way with the most demanding vocals in the musical and the most tragic story in the off-stage drama. Hines, Seeley and Dailey make their characters believable. They weave around Valli vocally while trying to elbow each other out of the way when it comes to taking credit for The Four Seasons’ success. That’s true to the backdrop of Rashomon as the musical has an apparent bow to the famous film’s multiple points of view.

Fab Feature on Jersey Boys Natl Tour Cast Member Jonny Wexler in LFPress.com! @jonnywexler

February 12th, 2015
Jonny Wexler

Jonny Wexler

The JERSEY BOYS national tour is playing at Budweiser Gardens in London (Ontario) through Sunday, February 15th. This is an especially exciting tour stop for London native, Jonny Wexler, who plays “Joe Pesci” in the company! Check out a sneak peek of a recent interview with Jonny in LFPress.com:

Jonny Wexler knows his career has truly hit some high notes with Jersey Boys.

The London-born performer is part of the touring cast of the jukebox musical based on the songs and lives of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons. Jersey Boys opens at the RBC Theatre at Budweiser Gardens on Tuesday, playing an arena venue for the first time on this tour.

“Yeah, in that respect, yes, it is a lot of high singing every night. Definitely,” Wexler said last week from Connecticut when a fan suggested notable highs were being hit. “I would also say it has hit some new heights in the other sense of the word as well.”

Wexler plays Joe Pesci, the Hollywood actor who helped bring the U.S. pop vocal superstars together early in his career. His other roles include understudying lead singer Valli, the little man with the pipes capable of soulful and stratospheric notes.

Welcome home, Jonny!
