“And then one day a tune popped into my head …” And if, like me, you bloody love a good musicals theses tunes will be in your head, on the tip of your tongue and on the end of your finger clicks for days to come.
Jersey Boys – the Broadway sensation charting the rise to fame of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons – is finally making it to the big screen. Directed by Clint Eastwood (and perhaps it’s important to note he is also a composer) the film follows the band from poor young men singing on street corners to matching-suited international stardom. With that comes personal tragedy, brushes with the law, and some of the most famously high pitched harmonies in music history.
John Lloyd Young takes the lead as Valli just as he did on Broadway, and with appearances from Christopher Walken and Boardwalk Empire regular Vincent Piazza, it’s shaping up to be as exhilarating as the much loved stage show.
Jersey Boys is on general release as of June 20th 2014.
