There is something exhilarating about going to a Broadway show, whether it’s in Madison, Wisconsin; Chicago, Illinois; New York City, or points between and beyond. When the lights dim and the actors take the stage, a story comes to life. And when it’s a story like Jersey Boys, it’s hard not to sit there with a dumb-founded smile on your face thinking, ‘This was the life back in Jersey…this was Frankie Valli’.
Granted, I lived for a time in New Jersey, and this wasn’t my first time seeing Jersey Boys–the last time was in New York City–and there will always be something about the era of the Four Seasons, and the magic of their memories that make it all so nostalgic.
It should go without saying that a Jersey Boys Broadway Tour is a bit like coming full circle. After all, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons did their share of touring. And before that–well, go see the play, because this play is the perfect place to learn a bit about the history of a cultural icon that made music mastery that is still played and remembered today.
You can catch Jersey Boys The Story of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons at the Overture Center for the Arts in Madison, WI. After that, the show goes back on the road.

Interview with Jesse Wildman
We had a chance to interview one of the actors in the show. Catch our interview with Jesse Wildman:
ASC) What do you like best about life on the road with a tour?
ASC) How does the Jersey Boys tour compare with the Jersey Boys show in NYC on Broadway?
Jesse) The story, the music, the script are all the same – there are only some minor set differences, so that the show is able to travel from week to week via truck with the most efficient load in (bringing the show into the theater and building it up) and load out (taking the set down and getting back out and into the trucks). Otherwise, you’re seeing the exact same show, just a different cast.
ASC) What is your favorite role that you’ve portrayed?
ASC) What made you decide to become an actress in theatre?
ASC) What is a typical day on set with the Jersey Boys?
