Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons hit Broadway

Original Jersey Boys set seven perfs in October

The original Jersey boys will land on Main Stem this fall, with Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons skedding a seven-perf stint at the Broadway Theater in October.

The story of Valli and the original members of the 1960s rock band has already proven a popular attraction on the Rialto with “Jersey Boys,” the 2005 tuner that recounts the story of the four men who formed the act. The show gained momentum over the initial months of its run to become a strong-selling hit thanks in part to the band’s popularity with the baby-boomer aud that makes up a major chunk of the theatergoing audience.

Whether the real Valli — the only original member who now performs with the band — will have the same box office power remains to be seen, although it seems likely the tri-state auds who turn out in droves for “Jersey Boys” would also show up for the band that inspired it.

Show is produced by Robert Ahrens, Eva Price and Manny Kladitis — the trio that presented Kathy Griffin’s brief Broadway stint last year — under the banner A Broadway Concert Event, along with Live Nation’s Jason Stone.

Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons on Broadway” runs Oct. 19-27.
