  1. Please tell me when “Jersey Boys” will be coming to Portland, Oregon. I want to be the first to get tickets and first in line. I have been waiting for years to see the show and can’t afford to travel to other areas where you are performing. I am waiting with bated breath.
    Please hurry so my husband can hopefully celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary watching you perform. It would be the highlight of my night.
    Please respond so I can mark it on my calendar and start saving and planning, as I live about 2 hours outside of Portland and would have to spend the night in Portland.
    Thank you so much,
    Linda Steele
