JERSEY BOYS! From the mean streets of Jersey to American Bandstand, this is the thrilling story of how a group of blue-collar boys from the wrong side of the tracks became the biggest doowop sensation of all time: The Four Seasons. Using their legendary music, two-time Tony Award-winner Des McAnuff brings to life the exciting early days of rock-and-roll, and the price of fame for four guys who had nothing – and everything – to lose.
