“Jersey Boys” is one of the most awarded, famous, and loved musicals of recent memory, having won a multitude of Tony Awards, a Grammy, and an Olivier award, while breaking pretty much every sales record for musicals around the world (While playing at The Forrest Theatre In Philadelphia where it broke the box office record 8 times), and telling the real life story of the rise and fall of one of the most famous Musical Groups Of all time, “The Four Seasons”.  There are few stars that have ever burned as brightly as Frankie Valli, Bob Gaudio (Who scored and wrote the music for the hit musical), Nick Massi, and Tommy DeVito, who by the time they were thirty, had sold 175 million albums, and become one of the most famous Rock N’ Roll groups of all time, while creating some of the most timeless music that still touches the hearts of anyone in any age group  throughout their various careers including “December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night)“, “Sherry“, “Big Girls Don’t Cry“, “Walk Like a Man“, “My Eyes Adored You“,”Big Man in Town“,”Beggin’“, “Bye, Bye, Baby (Baby, Goodbye)“, “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You“, “Working My Way Back to You“.  The Musical is is separated into four “seasons”, each narrated by a different member of the band. Act 1 comprises Spring (Tommy DeVito) & Summer (Bob Gaudio); Act 2 comprises Fall (Nick Massi) & Winter (Frankie Valli); each member has a different perspective on the band and his contribution to it an throughout it all you see how four kids from the wrong side of the tracks managed to become Musical and cultural icons. “Jersey Boys” is a cultural phenomenon, which if you haven’t seen it, you are missing out on one of the greatest and most popular musicals of all time!

Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with two of the fastest rising stars in the musical world, Brad Weinstock and Jason Kappus, who play the leads in the show of Frankie Valli and Bob Gaudio, to talk about what it’s like to portray such amazing and well known icons,  the experience of working on one of the great musicals of a generation, what it’s like to sing some of the most timeless music in history, and sooo much more!!  These kids were a delight to interview, so Kade Nation enjoy your trip through time and “The Four Seasons”!
