Vegas SEVEN has a fantastic feature this week on the amazing history of JERSEY BOYS with some amazing behind the scenes stories from producer Michael David, director Des McAnuff, original Four Seasons members Bob Gaudio and Frankie Valli, writers Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, and cast members Travis Cloer and Rick Faugno! Below is a preview:

Brickman: We meet them and they’re a little guarded. It was like speed dating, where you decide if you want to go on a date with these guys.

Elice: Frankie is a very well-turned-out guy and Gaudio is very tall and handsome and he’s got this great-looking wife and this little diamond stud in the ear, just dripping with cool. I thought, “Wow, they didn’t seem like Axl Rose and those big-haired rockers.”

Brickman: After a bottle of Italian wine, everybody opened up.

Frankie Valli: We just talked about everything from the very beginning of our careers. Even before we even got to do this, we decided we wanted to be a play for Broadway. Bob looked at me and said, “You know, if we do this we have to tell the truth. Are we ready to do that?”

Bob Gaudio: We had many offers to do something, but most of them were movies or TV, something we thought would be nice but would be a quick burn, one time and not meaningful. It was a gamble, because no one had been knocking on our door to do a Broadway show.
