WHAT: Opening night of “Jersey Boys” on Sunday

WHO: Tuner’s inspiration Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito and Bob Gaudio of the Four Seasons; plus Danny Aiello, Dennis Farina, Tony Sirico, Dick Cavett, Paul Shaffer and Joe Pesci — who’s a character in the show.

WHERE: Gotham’s August Wilson Theater with an after-bash at Marriott Marquis

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.”
