Jersey Boys synopsis: A group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks becomes the biggest doo-wop sensation of all time: The Four Seasons. The tune-filled show traces their first stumbles and fumbles to their rise to become international icons of their generation. Although personal problems and professional differences almost ripped the group apart, they managed to climb to the top of the pop charts over and over again with big hits, including “Sherry,” “Walk Like A Man,“ “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” and many more
