PRE-SHOW JITTERS: Valli doesn’t perform in “Boys,” but that doesn’t mean he feels divorced from the proceedings.

“For all the years I’ve been going onstage, it’s been a long time since I’ve had butterflies,” he said. “Tonight I got butterflies.”

GIVE ME A BREAK: “It’s like my life passing before my eyes in 2½ hours,” Gaudio said. “I wish I’d had a 20-minute intermission when I was living through it.”
