Jersey Boys, the runaway Broadway hit and 2006 Tony Award-winning Best Musical about Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, hits Miami this week for a limited three-week run at the Arsht Center.
A true rags-to-riches story, Jersey Boys seems tailor made for the stage. It has jukebox hits mixed with dance and a story arc that features the rise, fall, and inevitable redemption of its heroes. All told through immensely popular doo-wop hits sang in falsetto.
Look for our review on Saturday morning.
