NEW YORK (AP) — The Broadway hit “Jersey Boys” is going to get some competition from an original Jersey boy.
Frankie Valli, whose falsetto fuels The Four Seasons’ music, will return to Broadway for seven shows from Oct. 21-29 at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.
That will put him in competition with the behind-the-music musical about the doo-wop group that plays at the August Wilson Theatre.
Valli last played Broadway in 2012 in a lucrative set of shows. Some of his hits include “Sherry,” ”Walk Like A Man” and “December ’63 (Oh What A Night).”
