It may be pumpkin weather, but Tour 2 of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons’ magnificent warts-and-all musical bio, “Jersey Boys,” lights up the Durham Performing Arts Center like the Fourth of July. Broadway Series South first brought this Broadway hit to Raleigh Memorial Auditorium in June 2009, but the stellar cast for the second coming of “Jersey Boys” may boast even more candle power.
On Oct. 30-Nov. 4 and Nov. 6-11 and 13-18, the Durham Performing Arts Center will present “Jersey Boys,” a rousing backstage musical based on the meteoric rise of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons from the mean streets of Mafia-infested neighborhoods of Newark, NJ, to international stardom. “Jersey Boys” is not just another jukebox musical; it is an unflinching look at the origins of the American super-group The Four Seasons, and it is R-rated for language.
