    The real thrill, at least for those who want something more than recycled chart toppers and a story line poured from a can, is that Mr. Young (Frankie Valli) has crossed the line from exact impersonation into something more compelling.

    O.K, so the book is clunky, the backstory is emotionally skeletal and the structure sticks to a generic "VH1 Behind the Music" model, but glance around the newly rechristened August Wilson Theater during the songs in Jersey Boys at the middle-age women dancing in their seats while their husbands' heads bop to the music and it's clear something is connecting. Then go dive in among the leopard-print outfits and thick Sopranos accents in the lobby at intermission and it becomes even clearer. If this musical about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons can reach its core audience of baby boomers and partisan home-staters, it could become a sizable hit.

    Boys' real secret weapon is its stars. John Lloyd Young's sweetly guileless Valli does indeed sing like an angel, as another character notes. And he and the actors cast as his bandmates perform the Four Seasons' hits with more prowess and charisma than I've yet seen in a faux-rock musical. When these guys re-enact an Ed Sullivan TV spot, you understand why those girls in the audience screamed.

    November 6, 2005: Despite its flaws, you can't beat this show with a stick. The multitudes of other-side-of-the-Hudson folks who for years have been gloating about having Giants Stadium and New York football teams on Meadowlands territory now have something else to gloat about: They've got Jersey Boys on Broadway, where it could remain for quite some time.

    November 6, 2005: Don't count the "jukebox musical" out yet: A new one called Jersey Boys opened last night at the August Wilson Theatre on Broadway, and it should run for about 20 years. This time the group being celebrated is Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.
