Valli, Four Seasons inspire stage show

Jersey Boys, first a musical and then a movie, brought back the days of the rise of the Four Seasons, that special time just before the British Invasion of the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, when street-smart-in-a-cool-suit ruled the pop airwaves.

Now a special tribute show, entitled Oh What a Night! brings the music of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons to the stage of the Cowichan Theatre on Wednesday, Nov. 5 starting at 7 p.m. Just in from Australia and its third sold-out tour, this show brings to life 30 of the band’s hits in a captivating noteperfect performance.

The songs span the two decades of the group’s major hits from the early 1960s to the late 1970s disco era.

Fans will hear chart-toppers such as Sherry, Big Girls Don’t Cry, Working My Way Back To You Girl and My Eyes Adored You in a high energy, must-see theatrical show.

George Solomon, the production’s creative consultant says Oh What a Night! is not a carbon copy of the musical or film.

"The Jersey Boys is a great biography, but we are playing ourselves in the show," he said recently of himself and his fellow performers.

"We have children and grandparents coming up to us after the show to tell us how much they enjoyed it. Everybody loves these songs. The melodies and harmonies are great to sing and the songs are always a special memory for somebody."

The troupe honours the talent and style of the legendary Valli and the Four Seasons by staying true to the original recordings.
