Chuck Darrow of Philadelphia Daily news asks: WHERE would “Jersey Boys” be without the “Jersey Girls”? Check out a sneak peek to his interview with the JB second national tour Jersey Girls:

But without Kaleigh Cronin, Natalie Gallo and Ruby Lewis, there wouldn’t be much of a production.

That’s because, between them, the three twentysomething performers portray an astonishing 46 characters – from TV camera operators and hookers to waitresses and the members of the ’60s girl group the Angels.

For the record the redheaded Cronin is tall and willowy. Raven-haired Gallo, who hails from the Pittsburgh area, is shorter, while the equally petite, Kentucky-born Lewis is the trio’s resident blonde.
