Frankie Valli Meets Frankie Valli in London!

October 19th, 2007

The Daily Mail reports it was the day Frankie Valli met, well, Frankie Valli.

On Wednesday, the legendary singer with a four-octave falsetto met Ryan Molloy, an actor with a similar set of pipes, who will portray him in the London production of Jersey Boys. (Previews are at the Prince Edward Theatre from February 28.)

The show features songs such as Sherry, Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You, Walk Like A Man, Big Girls Don’t Cry and other hits sung by Valli and the Four Seasons.

Practically every one of them was written by Bob Gaudio, who for a time was a seasoned Season, but left to write and produce for Valli and other stars, including Neil Diamond.

The Jersey Boys in London will be Molloy, Glenn Carter, Philip Bulcock and Stephen Ashfield.
