JERSEY BOYS Chicago cast members Michelle Aravena (swing cast member), Jared Bradshaw (swing cast member), and John Michael Dias (Frankie Valli alternate) made a special appearance at the Roostertail in Detroit on Monday at the JB launch party! The JERSEY BOYS national tour will be playing at the Fisher Theatre in Detroit from 12/17/09 through 1/23/10. Tickets will go on sale to the public on September 18.

Along with the cast members, you’ll see a photo of owner Tom Schoenith, who has owned the Roostertail since 1958 and Detroit native and former JB cast member Eric Gutman!

In Act Two of Jersey Boys, you’ll remember that Bob mentions that Frankie is playing at the Roostertail, right before “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You” takes off in a big way! Also, in his JBB EXCLUSIVE Interview, here’s what Tommy DeVito said when asked about his favorite road appearance: “If I had to pick one favorite road appearance, it would be the Roostertail in Detroit. That place was always my favorite. It was laid out so nicely. At night, when the 4 Seasons were closing our set, they had this beautiful waterfall with all kinds of colors in the background behind the band. It was just a great scene and a really great club.”
