Broadway gets two helpings of “Sherry” starting October 21 when the real-life Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons play a week of concerts at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre just a few blocks from where the Tony-winning musical Jersey Boys has been telling their life stories for a decade.
Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons On Broadway! has booked a seven-performance engagement through October 29. The show is a return engagement for the group, which played the Broadway Theatre under the same title in 2012.
Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons On Broadway! features many of the singing group's greatest hits and Valli’s solo hits, including “Sherry,” “Big Girls Don't Cry,” “Walk Like A Man,” “Dawn (Go Away),” “Rag Doll,” “Bye, Bye, Baby (Baby Goodbye),” “Let's Hang On!,” “Working My Way Back To You,” “Can't Take My Eyes Off You,” “Grease,” ”My Eyes Adored You,” “Who Loves You,” and “December ‘63 (Oh What A Night),” along with a variety of musical surprises.
“Four years ago I made my Broadway debut with the Four Seasons and we were overcome by the response and outpouring of love from those audiences who were on their feet, singing along throughout the performance,” said Valli in an earlier statement. “Since then, we have performed for wonderful audiences around the world from San Francisco to London, but always hoping to return to that unique, electric, roof-raising experience you only get on Broadway.”
Eva Price and Live Nation are producing the engagement.
Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons have sold more than 175 million records, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1990, and have scored 30 Billboard Top 40 hits. As a solo artist, Valli has also scored nine Billboard Top 40 hits. As an actor, Valli enjoyed a recurring role on HBO’s The Sopranos and most recently appeared in Hawaii 5-0.
Also this fall, Valli will release Tis The Seasons, his first holiday album in decades, on the Rhino label. Valli has never stopped performing and continues to tour internationally.
The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre is on West 46th Street, east of Eighth Avenue. The August Wilson Theatre, where Jersey Boys is playing, is on West 52nd Street, also east of Eighth Avenue.
