If you know anything about popular music in the last 50 years, you will thoroughly enjoy Jersey Boys tickets. What better way to tell the story of the musical group Frankie Valli and the Four Season than with a musical? The Four Seasons have been incredibly popular since their first release in 1961, "Sherry."

Jersey Boys tells the tale of the band's rise from the streets of New Jersey to a pop icon. Like most stories in the entertainment industry, the Four Seasons' rise is neither smooth nor easy. The band's name changes. The band's members change. Personalities clash. All the while, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons (or whatever name they were at the time) are producing hits with Valli's unique falsetto voice and catchy lyrics. The fast-paced life eventually takes a toll on band members and problems ensue. Meanwhile, Valli also has a solo career that is becoming successful.

The Broadway cast features numerous stars to fill in the ever-changing band members. Michael Longoria plays Frankie Valli and has also been in the Broadway production of Hairspray. He has also been in productions stage greats like West Side Story, A Chorus Line and Peter Pan and Wendy. Christian Hoff plays Tommy DeVito and has won a Tony Award for his performance. He was also in Jesus Christ Superstar and The Who's Tommy on Broadway. Sebastian Arcelus plays Bob Gaudio and comes in with Broadway experience through Wicked, Rent and Good Vibrations. Former Side Show cast member J. Robert Spencer plays Nick Massi.

Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice wrote the book for the production and both are seasoned writers. Founding member of the Four Seasons, Bob Gaudio wrote the new music for the show and was also the principal songwriter for the Four Seasons when he was with them. Lyricist Bob Crewe also worked with the Four Seasons.

The Tony, Drama Desk and Grammy Award-winning musical features familiar favorites from Frankie Valli and his bands like "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Oh What a Night," "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" and "You're the Apple of My Eye." Unlike many other musicals based on famous musicians, Jersey Boys has become a fan favorite and a must-see on Broadway. The rags-to-riches tale of the Four Seasons makes it a classic story that is part of American history. Don't your chance to get Jersey Boys tickets and get a group together today!
