'JERSEY BOYS' GIVES THE FOUR SEASONS' BACKSTORY

Tune in to an oldies station and you'll hear the hits of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons: Sherry, Big Girls Don't Cry, Walk Like a Man and others from the group's heyday in the 1960s, all featuring Valli's soaring falsetto. Now the story behind the songs is told in a hit Broadway musical, Jersey Boys. Who knew that a young Joe Pesci (Goodfellas) introduced songwriter Bob Gaudio to the group? Or that two of the founding members did time in prison? The show opens Wednesday and runs through March 15 at Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, Tampa. $48-$153.50. (813) 229-7827; toll-free 1-800-955-1045; tbpac.org.
