DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - They rocked the music scene in the early ’60s with harmonies the world fell in love with! Four blue collar teens from New Jersey had a dream to get out of their troubled lives and, thanks to a little tune called “Sherry,” they soon started living the good life.

The Tony Award winning “Jersey Boys” not only brings the Four Seasons’ chart topping hits to the stage, but also their amazing story of success, despite all odds. It just opened at the AT&T Performing Arts Center for five weeks.

The musical is an international phenom! Seven years after it opened on Broadway in 2005, it is still playing to sold out audiences in countries all over the world. The current production opened to a packed crowd at the Winspear, where a long standing ovation topped off the electric performance.

Real life native Jersey boy Brad Weinstock plays the iconic Frankie Valli in the North Texas show. He has been with the show for just a year and said that the musical gets the same reaction from audiences every night! He keeps his voice in shape by staying quiet most of the performance days, and he travels with a humidifier and keeps healthy habits. Few can reach the notes that real life crooner Valli could (and still does!), so Brad knows that he must be disciplined doing eight shows a week.

Weinstock told us that the music is infectious, but the story grabs the fans too — hard to believe there were so many missteps in the Four Seasons’ rise to fame, but somehow they made it through the politics, drug abuse, debts and drama to have one of the most impressive lists of hits any American group ever created.

Thirty-three songs light up “Jersey Boys” and you’ll hear the audience humming most of them through the entire performance! “Walk Like a Man.” “Big Girls Don’t Cry.” “My Eyes Adored You.” “Oh, What a Night.” “Working My Way Back to You Girl.” You know you know and love them all!

“Jersey Boys” continues at the AT&T Performing Arts as part of the Lexus Broadway Series though July 15. Five weeks to catch Frankie and the boys equals heaven for North Texas fans!
