Jersey Boys Heads to Memphis January 27!

Jersey Boys LogoChris Davis notes that JERSEY BOYS opens a three-week run in Memphis on Wednesday, January 27th. Davis spoke with Orpheum CEO Pat Holloran about the music of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons and the Tony Award-winning show that will be playing at his theatre later this month.

According to Halloran, “I’m old enough to remember making out to the Four Seasons in the back of my ’49 DeSoto.” Halloran has seen the show four times already, and, according to him, it’s not your typical jukebox musical.

“This isn’t Mamma Mia! or All Shook Up. It’s an adult-oriented show,” Halloran says. “This is about four guys who grew up on the rough and tumble side of New Jersey. It’s real. The show’s creators wanted to be honest, so the characters aren’t saying ‘shucks’ and ‘heck.’ They’re using authentic Jersey boys language.”
