With a shiny doo-wop sound highlighted by lead singer Frankie Vallis stratospheric falsetto, they wrote their own songs, invented their own sounds, and sold 175 million records worldwide--all before they were thirty.
Jersey Boys, Broadways 2006 Tony Award(R) Winner for Best Musical, is the electrifying tale of the Seasons rise, the moment they established their signature sound with their breakout hit Sherry; becoming a sensation on American Bandstand, of being young and full of hope and dreams and promise; of riding the rocket of success against the irresistible pull of the Jersey mob and the old neighborhood.
