Synopsis: Rob Marshall directs the Tony-award winning musical that tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. John Lloyd young stars as Frankie Valli, a young Jersey Boy whose voice leads him to one of the biggest pop sensations in history. The band goes through good times and bad in one of the best musicals in recent history.

What the press would say:

In 2006, "Jersey Boys" won Best Musical at the Tonys and Rob Marshall's new film adaptation deserves to win Best Picture at the Oscars. The movie tells the story of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons from the beginning on a New Jersey street corner to an enormous stage in front of the whole world. It is at times hysterically comical while it can be heart wrenchingly dramatic. John Lloyd Young takes on his Tony-winning role of Frankie Valli in a performance that rivals to great musical actors of the Golden Age of cinema. The rest of the Four Seasons reprise their Broadway roles in this magnificent adaptation of a toe-tapping, tear-jearking musical sensation.
