Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons were just four guys from New Jersey, until they sang their very first note. They had a sound nobody had ever heard… and the radio just couldn’t get enough of. But while their harmonies were perfect onstage, off stage it was a very different story—a story that has made them an international sensation all over again.
From the streets of New Jersey to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the show is packed with their hits, including "Beggin’", "Sherry", "Walk Like A Man", "December, 1963 (Oh What a Night)", "Big Girls Don’t Cry", "My Eyes Adored You", "Let’s Hang On (To What We’ve Got)", "Bye Bye Baby", "Can’t Take My Eyes Off You", "Working My Way Back to You", "Fallen Angel", "Rag Doll" and "Who Loves You".
